I'm a vegetarian & I still eat fig newtons. The wasps are completely dissolved into the plant, so it's really no different than any other fertilizer. Otherwise vegetarians couldn't eat anything, because of the bacteria, microbes, and other insects that die in the fertilizers.
Take compost for instance. Bacteria & microbes break the compost down in a microscopic orgy until they create enough heat to kill themselves off. Then it's safe for use as fertilizer.
Yeah how do them wasps fit in that tiny hole? Like a camel going though the eye of a needle methinks.

sounds like a figgin death cult ...
In particular, there were a lot of insects for sale for consumption, from crickets to water bugs to ant larva

How strange tat I never saw any wasps in or near the trees in all the years we had them around our home.
You would think you would also see a wasp inside now and again as often you open ones that are not totally ripe, but never ever once saw one, we are talking what many hundreds of figs per tree, so a person should see some wasps?
Another one of those things I did not want to know...
