Department of Agriculture entomologists have developed a technique for the production and collection of eggs of the Angoumois grain moth (Sitotroga cerealella) for mass-rearing the parasitic waspTrichogramma pretiosum Riley.
Trichogramma is giving promising results in trials aimed at developing biological control of insect pests in the Ord River Irrigation Area.
