At the end of April, Peter Kiwuso from the National Forestry Resources Research Institute (NaFORRI) in Uganda visited FABI. The purpose of this visit was to collect a shipment of parasitized bronze bug eggs for release against the bronze bug in Uganda. A small petri dish containing eggs was kept aside to confirm the presence of the parasitoid. Based on the emergence of parasitoids in the petri dish (the black dots visible on the filter paper in the photo), thousands of C. noackae were sent to Uganda.
