Emerald Jewel Wasps Enslave Cockroaches
Using surgical precision, the Jewel Wasp (Ampulex compressa) targets specific parts of a cockroach's nervous system to disable it and turn it into a zombie. She then uses this zombie as food for her young.

Some may find this to be a particularly creepy video. Viewer discretion is advised.
