Gasteruption assectator wasp is a predator-inquiline that lay eggs inside the cells of solitary bees and wasps. Their alrvae are feeding on the food stores of the host and / or nest inhabitants.
The ovipositor is not used for drilling into wood, but is used just to remotely place the eggs into an existing nest or burrow.
