Weevil Wasp (Cerceris sp.) Wasp with a captured weevil (on Vitis vulpina) at the edge of a dense mixed forest. It wasn&#039;t keen on sharing and quickly flew away with its prey when approached!<br />
<br />
Female Weevil Wasps typically dig nests in the soil. Prey which have been paralyzed via venom (from the wasp&#039;s stinger) are dragged into these nests--where they are then parasitized (and eggs are laid within the body).<br />
