Although FAW is an alien invasive pest, ICIPE research has unravelled significant information on widely distributed native parasitoid species in Africa NAMELY  Telenomus remusTrichogramma

Following a comprehensive assessment of the performance of the native parasitoids 2020, ICIPE jointly with national partners in Kenya embarked on  mass releases.  So far over 140,000 wasps each of Telenomus remus and Trichogramma chilonis that parasitize FAW eggs; and 5,000 wasps of Cotesia icipe that parasitize early larval stages of FAW have been released in five counties , Taita-Taveta, Machakos, Embu, Meru, and Nyeri in Kenya with very encouraging results.
