Laelius pedatus (parasitoid) (Say, 1836)

This wasp is a semi-gregarious ectoparasitoid of Dermestidae larvae like species of the genus Trogoderma. The clutch size appears to depend on the size of the host larva and ranges from 1-6. The life cycle can be completed in about 4 weeks. The adults are 2-3 mm long.
