    Spider rips head off live wasp trapped in its web at Birmingham home

    Gruesome moment a spider rips the head off a live wasp trapped in its web

    • Sylvia Werrett, from Birmingham, watched a spider rip off a live wasp’s head
    • Ms Werrett’s eldest son Ethan saw the battle when playing with his two brothers 
    • Footage, taken by the 42-year-old mother, shows the wasp tangled in the web 

    A family were left shocked after they witnessed a spider trap a wasp in its web and then rip off the head of the insect. 

    Sylvia Werrett, from Birmingham, said her eldest son Ethan was playing with his two brothers in the garden when he shouted that he had found a wasp caught in a spider’s web. 

    The 42-year-old mother gathered with her three sons to watch the gruesome spectacle, which saw a small spider fight with a large wasp.

    In video footage taken of the unreal scene, the spider and wasp both cling on to a thin web as the arachnid tries to snap the insect’s head off – while it is still alive.

    The wasp’s legs twitch as it fights against the spider, which is ‘literally trying to tear its head off’, according to one of Ms Werrett’s sons.

    They call another of Ms Werrett’s sons Lee over to watch the brutal battle while they film the rarely-seen moment.

    One of her sons is heard saying ‘that’s really cool’ in the video as he admires the strength of the arachnid, which appears to be a lace web spider.

    The wasp, which normally measure around one inch, is eventually defeated as the spider seems to succeed in breaking the insect’s neck.

    Ms Werrett’s sons all exclaim and shout as the wasp drops further down the web, but the spider continues its vicious attack on the dead insect.

    One person is heard saying: ‘Oh! There we go I think that was the head.’ 

    Another person jokes that ‘it’s Nearly Headless Nick’, referring to the famous ghost that features in JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books. 

    At the end of the video, the spider retreats back up the window, leaving its dead prey tangled in its web.

    Ms Werrett said the gruesome scene was a brutal ‘learning experience’ for her three sons about nature, adding that they thought the wasp would break free at first

    Speaking about the scene, Ms Werrett said: ‘At first we thought it was going to break free because the spider wasn’t very big and the wasp kept struggling, but the spider didn’t give up and eventually got the better of the wasp. It was a bit of a David and Goliath moment and as none of us are really big wasp fans we were all on the spider’s side.

    ‘Although it was fascinating, it was pretty gross to watch; especially when it’s head was pulled off, but it is all a part of nature and it was an interesting (if brutal) learning experience for the boys.

    ‘I’m glad I grabbed my phone to take a video. It’s one of those moments that you just have to be lucky to stumble upon and I’m sure wildlife lovers will be interested to share in it.’ 

    Some spiders, including the yellow garden spider, are predators of wasps and often capture the insects in their webs as a tasty snack.

    Most spiders that catch their prey using a web are capable of both capturing and eating wasps. 

    The spider wasp is one of the few types of wasps that will hunt arachnids, with most falling prey to them instead.
