What parasite makes insects obsessed with sex



A parasite called Massospora cicadina affects cicadas from North America. It is important that the latter actually live for 13 or 17 years. However, most of their lives are spent underground. Massospora cicadina begins to affect the cicada only after the insect reaches its adult state.

The fact is that the spores of the parasite can live in the ground for several years and not manifest themselves in any way. And as soon as the cicada begins to make its way to the surface of the earth, these spores begin to grow into the belly of the insect. That is, the body of the animal is, as it were, replaced by the body of the parasite.
