Summary
The world of invertebrates is a web of relationships with plants and other animals, and this programme is full of incredible stories. It features unique footage of the world{u2019}s smallest insect {u2013} a fairy wasp only a quarter of a millimetre long that flies underwater, in order to find the eggs of water beetles in which to lay its own brood. There are the ants too, that castrate the trees on which they live to force them to put extra energy into growing more homes for them. Then there is the blister beetle, whose larvae huddle together on the end of a piece of grass and mimic a female bee. When a male bee attempts to mate with the {u2018}female{u2019}, the larvae grab onto his belly. Confused, he fl ies away and searches for a real female. When he eventually finds her and mates with her, the beetle larvae hurriedly swap from his front onto her back {u2013} and hence get carried back to her nest where they eat her pollen supplies
