We also present data on the biology of this parasitoid, providing information on laboratory rearing techniques, parasitoid attack rates, and infection with the reproductive parasite Wolbachia

The infection, called Wolbachia
, has been shown in labs to reduce the incidence of pathogen infections in mosquitoes and has the potential to be used in controlling malaria-transmitting mosquito populations.
Science Minister Ian Walker said researchers at James Cook University in Cairns had bred mosquitoes with bacteria called Wolbachia
, which they had shown stopped mosquitoes transmitting the Dengue virus, and released them at trial sites to breed with wild mosquitoes that pass Wolbachia
on to their offspring.
