Spider Vs Wasp In Battle To The Death


COMM: This battle between a spider wasp and a wolf spider marks the start of one of nature’s
grizzliest fights for survival. COMM: Spider wasps are so called because they hunt spiders, not because they are an arachnid.
The spider wasp’s sting is one of the most painful insect stings known to man. COMM: Its opponent is known for its agility
and speed as well as having great eyesight. COMM: Striking with its venomous stinger, the wasp attacks the spider over and over
again, paralyzing its prey. COMM: But the ordeal is far from over. COMM: Dragging the helpless spider back to its den, the wasp lays its egg in the spider’s
abdomen. COMM: Making the unsuspecting spider a living host. COMM: Ultimately, the parasitic lava will
consume the spider from the inside out.

  1. This wasn't a battle to the death it was a predator killing its prey effortlessly like it normally does. This wasn't intense at all.

  2. Tachypompilus ferrugineus ferrugineus vs. ♂ Hogna carolinensis (maybe) Can you please tell us the general location?

  3. I've seen these wasps in my yard carrying away wolf spiders. If you try to take the spider away the wasp will chase you!

  4. I read an article in a free monthly magazine in southwest Colorado about the Tarantula Hawk Wasp. The entomologist interviewed said he had recorded 700 encounters between the wasps and the tarantulas. He said out of that 700 observations, only one time did the tarantula kill the wasp.

  5. They pretty much showed the wasp won in the intro just saying it, and I didn't even finish watching the video so I'ma leave, lmk who wins

  6. Got stung by a red spider wasp the other day. Happened to accidentally step on it and the spider it was dragging while barefoot. Initially, not much pain. Following evening, my foot was on fire. Makes you feel alive, that's for damn sure haha

  7. Spider wasps are so called because they hunt spiders, not because they are an arachnid. Opposite Wolf spiders are so called because they hunt wolves, not because they are canis…. Lol

  8. Spider wasps don't go for all spiders though. They have trouble with web spiders and jumping spiders. They only go for like foot predatory spiders. Tarantulas and wandering spiders are the veey venomous and most dangerous to humans but they are not the king of spiders.
