Many riders of the chalcid family lay their eggs in the bodies of mammals, but only this individual has a special love for humans. Michael Centrell, a farmer from New England, can tell the most about the customs of the rider. The poor man was stung by the Chalcidoidea right in the ear and stung so hard that for another two weeks his ear ached unbearably and stopped hearing anything. But in the third week, at night, Michael’s wife, waking up and turning on the light, found that young creatures were crawling out of her husband’s ear onto the pillow. An urgent operation saved the farmer’s life – 400 grams of larvae were removed from his ear, already ready to turn into adults. If this happened, and the head of the farmer would simply explode from the inside.
