The burrowing wasp then takes it paralysed victim to its burrow were it places it in a cell and lays eggs on it and berries it to stop anything getting to it.

Over the winter, the eggs hatch and the larvae feed and pupate, eventually turning into wasps and emerging the following spring.

Each newly developed burrowing wasp is genetically programmed to begin the process again. To find or create a burrow, lay eggs and provide food.
