Description:

Caterpillars taste good -- if you're a growing wasp. New research shows how some mother wasps ensure that their babies get to feast on as many caterpillar meals as they like, with the help of a virus that interferes with the caterpillars' immune system and growth, making it easier for the wasp larvae to take over.
