Darwin wasps are one of the most species-rich families in the Hymenopteran order. Wasps are known to be natural controllers of other insects and, therefore, contribute significantly to the way an ecosystem operates. All Darwin wasps are parasitoids, which means that they are required to live in or on another insect in order to develop, grow and mature. Therefore, species belonging to the Darwin wasp family has the potential for being used in biocontrol programmes within the South African agricultural sectors.

How do we go about figuring this out? This talk explores the potential the Afrotropical genus Netelia to be used as a biocontrol agent.
