A newly discovered wasp is apparently in control of the minds of the victims.

Euderus set, which is also known as the crypt-keeper, takes over, and has the uncanny ability to control the actions of several species of gall wasps, so they may be parasitized and die in a horrible way.

Galls are abnormal, tumor-like growths on oak trees are created by a gall wasp, used as a shelter for their larvae. As soon as the gall wasp larvae mature, they eat their way out of the gall bladder, and to take off. The crypt-keeper, to identify (named after the Egyptian god Set, who imprisons his brother in a crypt for the dead, by him also lay their eggs in the gall bladder. The crypt-keeper, and the larvae then burrow into the gall wasp is a boy.

Host gall wasp matures and begins to chew its way out of the gall bladder, as usual, but, as has been observed by researchers at the University of Iowa, and Rice University, something strange happens: the host gall wasp will be in the eating of it, make a hole just big enough for his head to squeeze through.

“Where the gall wasp is being attacked by Euderus set (the crypt keeper), the gall wasp begins to chew on the leave a hole, but it does not succeed, and the results are what we have referred to as a “header ” plug”, ” the study’s lead author, Anna is a department of the University of Iowa, told Fox News. “We have identified the head plugs are detected by wasps, who had stopped chewing, their exit holes, and was non-responsive, and visually looks like a wasp head and block with a hole in the gall bladder.”

After feeding on the gall wasp to the body from the inside, the crypt-keeper, to identify a hole out of the hosts’ heads. Alien eat your heart out.

What is amazing researchers is how the crypt-keeper, larva, once it’s in, the gall wasp, is in some way or another to the manipulation of the host-to-eat, such as a small hole, so that only the host’s head has been exposed.

“At the moment we are not quite sure of the mechanism by which the E. is set to the manipulations of her host,” Ward explained. “However, we predict that this will be a very simple mechanism that is it is going to stop or paralyse the host at the exact same time, he has chewed part of the end-hole but, before it does.”

THE SPIDERS ARE STILL EVIL BECAUSE OF THE SORT OF EVOLUTIONARY TRICK FOR SURVIVAL ‘IN CLIMATE OF CHAOS’

To study this phenomenon, the researchers had the gruesome task of collecting of galls in the wild and in the end, the collection of more than 23,000 of the give-and-ready shelters and more than 100 species of gall wasps, along with some of the Crypt-keeper, on the inside. According to Ward, the action of the galls was not all that difficult.

“Oak-galls are fairly common in North America and can be found in all types of buildings,” she said. “In order to collect the wasps, we just don’t have the collecting of the galls the wasp is one of the development from the inside.”

The team is brought in, then that galls them back to their lab, and then wait for the wasps to get in, where they could observe the occasional crypt keeper to identify it in action. Finally saw it-the crypt-keeper stand out from the minds of the 305, which give off seven different gall wasp species.

The crypt-keeper, were selective of their victims, and prefer to gall wasps, which are, without any spikes or fur on their bodies.
