We had two of these bug’s in the house today. We live in Sydney, Australia, it’s Summer and it’s a humid day around 30 degrees. What is it?
This is a beneficial Ensign Wasp. The female parasitizes the ootheca or egg case of cockroaches helping to keep the cockroach population in check.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly and thank you for the answer. That makes sense – we have a huge cockroach population inside our house at the moment, it’s out of control.
