Pirate Wasp Mothers are a species of airborne insects that can be found flying near light sources located in the Transit Stations in the Pirate Homeworld (Urtraghus). These creatures resemble the Sbugs found on Zebes. However, Pirate Wasp Mothers can be shot and killed, a feat not possible with the Sbugs. Using a charged Hyper Beam shot facilitates killing the small targets. Though they cannot be scanned, their names can be found in the files of the rooms they appear in.
