Welcome

This is a space for me to wax lyrical about some of the most interesting and macabre organisms on the planet: parasites and parasitoids.

Parasite – An organism that lives at the expensive of another (host) with no benefits for the host. Unlike the parasitoid the host often survives.

Parasitoid – Typically an insect who only has one host organism at the larval stage which will eventually kill there host.
