She even provided some interesting factoids about them.
The females have really long ovipositors that they use to insert eggs into grubs in decaying wood.
They check out the holes in dead trees and listen for chewing grubs. If they hear one, they insert their ovipositors into the hole until they spear their quarry.
The grub is then the host food for the larva when it hatches.
Yikes! Not exactly the perfect dinner guest to invite over, huh!
And here I just thought it was some big creepy bug. I had no idea it was as interesting as all that. I bet that the long fancy Latin name for them just means big creepy bug.
Long Live the Queen of Bugs
