Parasitic wasps are increasingly used in agricultural pest control as they prey mostly on pest insects and have little impact on crops..

Wasps store sperm inside their body and control its release for each individual egg as it is laid; if a female wishes to produce a male egg, she simply lays the egg without fertilizing it. Therefore, under most conditions in most species, wasps have complete voluntary control over the sex of their offspring...
