Spathius galinae

The parasitoid wasp Spathius galinae has been examined as a new candidate for biological control of the emerald ash borer (Agrilis planipennis). Research in three northeastern states in the U.S. found wild populations established two years after release, and parasitization rates of emerald ash borers as high as 49 percent.
