Caption

Parasitic wasp (Cotesia sesamiae). This wasp lays its eggs in the African pink stem borer (Sesamia calamistis). The larvae of the Sesamia calamistis moth feed on a wide range of plants, boring into the plant stems. It is found in many tropical and subtropical regions of Africa. Its numbers can be reduced by use of the parasitic wasp Cotesia sesamiae, a form of biological pest control. The wasp lays its eggs in the larva and the hatching and development of the wasp kills the larva.
