The Sharpshooter Battle Continues

State agricultural officials will release a tiny parasitic wasp they hope will help control the vineyard
destroying glassy-winged sharpshooter in San Jose.

The wasps “seek out´´ sharpshooter eggs and deposit their own larvae within them. Releasing
such wasps is part of a technique called “biological control´´ that´s helping control the sharpshooter in Mexico and Texas.
