Bohart Open House: "Parasitoid Palooza!"

"An insect parasitoid is a species whose immatures live off of an insect host, often eating it from the inside out," says Tabatha Yang, the museum's education and outreach coordinator. "It is part of their life cycle, and the host generally dies."

The program includes:

  • Senior museum scientist Steve Heydon, a world authority on Pteromalids, or jewel wasps, a group of tiny parasitoids — many of which are important as biological control agents.
  • Entomology Ph.D. student Jessica Gillung, who researches the Acroceridae family, "a remarkable group of endoparasitoids of spiders."
