Learn About Parasitic Wasps & Flies On 'Pea Green Boat'

Jul 26, 2016

Glenn Marangelo from the Missoula Insectarium will be on "Pea Green Boat" on Thursday, July 28 to teach us about Ichneumon Wasps and Robber Flies. 

All other insects should beware the robber fly! These incredibly fast and agile predators can easily capture most other flying insects for a meal.

Ichneumon wasps may look a little scary, but luckily have no interest in humans. They have an amazing ability to to locate the larvae of wood-boring horntail wasps. How and why? You'll need to tune in to find out.

Learn more on "Pea Green Boat" Thursday at 4:00 p.m. Listen on your radio, or online.
