WOWBugs, Melittobia digitata, Living, Culture of 50-100

Item # 144570

This bizarre classroom creature is a harmless, stingless wasp found worldwide. For capturing student interest, it’s hard to top an insect that has wings but hops and plays possum; takes only 3 weeks to complete its life cycle; produces up to 700 offspring (95% of them female); and includes blind males who kill their brothers and mate with their sisters!

Each culture includes 50 to 100 wasps shipped in the early parasitic stage inside Sarcophaga (blow fly) puparia. Order our Young Sarcophaga Pupae (item# 144442) if you are going to maintain the culture.
