This Ted-Ed video is a 6 minute animated introduction to parasitoid wasps. It’s cheerfully gruesome, and shows some of the different parasitic strategies of wasps.

    This video is a fun introduction to insect parasitoids. There is an associated online quiz, but the multiple choice questions are so-so. The discussion/essay questions, though, are better. The last one we are still thinking about: “How many layers of parasitoidism can there be? Is there a reason that it cannot go on indefinitely?”
