There are many different species of wasps that each produce a different kind of larva. Wasps that build and live in a hive of some kind and create cells inside the hive that an egg is placed into. The egg then hatches into a larva that is looked after and feed flower and plant nectar until it turns into an adult wasp. Other wasps such as ground dwelling wasps dig or use a hole in the ground as the basis for their own nest. This nest will contain chambers that the wasp will fill with food such as paralysed spiders and caterpillars that the eggs will either be laid inside, on or near to. The eggs hatch to produce the larva who will feed upon the insects provided. Another wasp larva is a parasitic larva. These larva can be laid as eggs by the wasp into a caterpillar, the eggs hatch into the larvae who live just under the surface of the caterpillars skin, feeding on its blood and avoiding important organs. Once they reach the rite age, they chew their way out of the caterpillars skin, to then begin cocooning them selves. The caterpillar, still affected by chemicals from the female wasp who laid the eggs inside it raps the cocooned larvae in its own cocoon material providing further protection. The caterpillar will then protect the cocoon until it dies of starvation.
