Biological control using natural enemies such as parasitoids, predators and patho- gens, is an age-old sustainable practice of the control of crop pests. It has gained impetus in recent times, as conventional insecticides did not achieve the desired level of control of pest insects due to the evolution of resistance in them, and in addition, showed deleterious effects like environment pollution, pest resurgence, and reduction in their natural enemies in the agroecosystem. Successful examples of biological control using parasitoids and predators are the control of woolly aphids, the San Jose scale, sugarcane lepi- dopterous borers and sugarcane Pyrilla.
