  • Tarantulas have very few natural enemies other than humans. Its only real natural enemy is an insect known as the spider wasp. One of the types of the spider wasp is the The Tarantula Hawk or Tarantula Killer (Pepsis wasps) giant wasp. The wasp finds the tarantula by using olfactory or the sense of smell. The wasp stings the tarantula, which paralyzes it, then the wasp lays an egg on its abdomen and then buries it in the tarantulas burrow. When the egg hatches the tarantula is used as a living food source by the wasp grub.
