Bad bug, good larvae

imageA green tomato worm with white egg-like larvae on it is a good bug, said Herb Wyatt of Church View.

Venom from a wasp’s sting paralyzes the tomato worm so it can no longer eat tomato vines. The wasp then lays its larvae on the worm, where they feed on the worm until fully developed into wasps, and the cycle of life starts over again.
