Parasite follows its stink bug prey to WA

The discovery in Washington state of a parasitic wasp that kills its host like a scene from the “Alien” sci-fi movie has entomologists cheering from the west coast to the east. That’s because the wasp’s victim – the brown marmorated stink bug – is far more wicked. What’s more, the wasp, which hails from Asia and is being studied under quarantine in the U.S., has been found living at a public park in Washington (WSU press release...)
