    Based on the descriptions in wiki.. now it makes sense why they target roachs.. afterall, roachs is well known to be 1 of the hardiest creature on earth.. cannot be killed so easily.. reliable supply of "fresh" food for the wasp............ not sure why they need to feed on living tissues thou..

    From Wiki

    " The hatched larva lives and feeds for 45 days on the roach, then chews its way into its abdomen and proceeds to live as an endoparasitoid. Over a period of eight days, the wasp larva consumes the roach's internal organs in an order which guarantees that the roach will stay alive, at least until the larva enters the pupal stage and forms a cocoon inside the roach's body."
