Today’s garden cupcake is vanilla based with fresh lemon balm and pineapple sage. And with a mango close to going it made for a perfect glaze. I like my cupcakes and other sweets simple. Like everything in life simple is better. 😊 #gardenfreshness#freshherbs#urbangardening#simplessweets
It is estimated that there are up over 500,000 species of Parasitoid Wasps, each one uniquely adapted to specific hosts.
Some, such as the Braconid Wasps, are adapted to prey on soft bodied insects. While other are capable of survive on decaying plant matter, such as the Saw flies.
Though they may look like eggs, the white objects pictured are actually cocoons. The eggs are deposited into the plant (which is cut open by the female, hence the "saw" in "Saw Flies"). Once the larvae emerge from their eggs, they feast on the plant matter until they're ready to pupate. They then spin silk cocoons and undergo metamorphosis to become adult wasps.
