This is the small parasitic wasp that came out of the small yellow cocoons that formed the worms or larvae that came out of the pieris brassicae.
Wonderful as God did all creation to control the excess of plagues. All these scenes took place in the garden of my house, where a small plague of caterpillars pieris brassicae devoured my cabbages. I never use insecticides, but let nature take its course.
When these parasitic wasps hatch by the hundreds, there were the little jumping spiders waiting near their cocoons to eat many of them in their first few minutes of life.
