Mike Parisio, a forester and entomologist at the Bemidji DNR office, shared his parasitoid collection with youngsters. "These are all wild-harvested, tracked down by me with a bug net," he said, pointing to a large wasp with a three-inch tail. "This is the prime specimen here. This is a megarhyssa.
