This little critter is a parasitic wasp who prefers to lay its eggs in cockroaches. They go about their scuttling unaware of the pupae devouring them from inside until it is too late.
They are also quite happy to lay their eggs in people so I was truly grimmed out to discover one buzzing my face as I woke this morning.
Thanks to the modern miracle of pesticides, it was soon dead.
But it is possible that I will soon be a Dad after all- to dozens of parasitic wasps bursting out my face.
