Standard gene regions (starting with as COI) will be assessed for suitability as marker genes to identify and distinguish among different species of Trissolcus wasps that are being tested in the USA as candidate biological control agents for brown marmorated stink bug. Foreign exploration in Asia will be conducted to obtain additional natural enemies of BMSB.
