    1. The first time I became aware of micro wasps was when shooting a black garden ant, it was 3/4’s the size. I was amazed, and even more amazing, it is a wasp species that is the smallest insect in the world at 0.139 mm. Commonly known as ‘Fairyflies’, check the Wikipeda link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly#Extant_generahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly#Extant_generahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly#Extant_generahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly#Extant_generahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly#Extant_genera makes for an interesting read.
