dylanaxolotl : Second most painful sting of any insect, which does not include scorpions. Tried to get one in my yard today. Also lost a giant swallowtail

morningcoffee23 : Omg I haven't seen a blue wasp in ages. There must be spiders around the area.
tonechoe : I know!, never seen any so big with red wings. ya, they're nectarivores and I read that females hunt and paralyze large tarantulas to lay an egg. then the larvae incubates and eats the tarantula while still alive! cray crayy

Not a wasp you want to get stung by. This is an insect known as the Tarantula Hawk. Their sting is considered one of the most painful of any insect. Females lay a single egg on a tarantulas abdomen and then cover the burrow that the spider is in. I'll spare your appetite and let you research the rest of the process if you want.

The Tarantula Hawk Wasp is the second most painful sting in the world. They're pretty docile though, and its rare to get stung. Unless you like grab it or it flies in your shirt.

sheenasee3 : This is your own collection? How do you keep other bugs from eating your insects?
carim_nahaboo : Yes @sheenasee3 - its difficult, everything needs to be housed in sealed draws or cases, but even the best of these can still be attacked by pests, sometimes chemicals are used but I tend to just fully clean each specimen before adding it to a collection, and regular checks...

Pepsis sp. Female - Arizona. Tarantula Hawk Wasp. These wasps paralyse tarantulas, bury them and lay eggs inside them.

deft.art : I am fascinated by you. Where do you get your bugs from? Where did you learn to mount them?
carim_nahaboo : Thanks @deft.art ! I learnt it all from practice, there's a lot of info online about setting and spreading specimens, a lot of my specimens I have traded for, but also can be bought from entomology sites, insect shows, and eBay.
dllavaneras : Definitely the most painful sting I've ever experienced; according to the Schmidt pain index it comes second only to the bullet ant (Paraponera clavata)
carim_nahaboo : Yeah I've heard its like lightning in your skin @dllavaneras ....wouldn't be jumping to handle one but they are beautiful enough that is forgive a sting from one haha bullet Ants seem a lot worse, especially since its often multiple stings from them.
dllavaneras : It felt like a hot, electrified sewing needle piercing my arm; the only accident in the field where I was reduced to tears. They are stunning, though! I live a couple hundred km from bullet ants, so I haven't seen them in the wild.

Tarantula hawk wasp!!! These wasps are sooo cool. Their sting is ranked second most painful sting in the insect world, behind the Bullet Ant. This wasp takes down tarantulas! She paralyzes the tarantula with her sting, drags it into her underground nest and lays her egg inside the living but paralyzed prey. The egg hatches and eats the tarantula from the inside out leaving vital organs for last. Then pupates into its adult form (seen here) and feeds on nectar. #tarantula #tarantulahawk #tarantulahawkwasp #woah #insectagram

phinneausthepug : Sounds very much like the Cicada Killers that nest in our flower beds each year. Except they're more docile (unless you're a cicada!) It's amazing to watch the female manhandle the cicadas into her tunneled nest.
