Aphidius colemani

aphid parasitic wasp

Aphidius colemani are parasitic wasps who insert their eggs into medium-sized aphid species such as green peach aphids.

These parasitic wasps are very tiny. They are also stingless. Instead of stingers, the females have ovipositors that they use to lay eggs inside of their aphid hosts.
