INTRODUCING THE SPIDER WASP The spider wasp (Pompilidae) actively hunts spiders and is the only known predator of redback spiders. The spider wasp injects unsuspecting spiders with a paralytic venom, leaving their prey defenceless. Using their super strength, the wasp carries the spider back to a hollow or nest. The wasp then lays eggs inside the spider’s brain, while the spider is still alive and motionless. Ewww! Once the eggs have hatched, the baby wasps devour the spider. Spider wasps are found all over mainland Australia and Tasmania. The insects come…
