  title={Venom Proteins from Parasitoid Wasps and Their Biological Functions},
  author={S{\'e}bastien J. M. Moreau and Sassan Asgari and R Manjunatha Kini},
Parasitoid wasps are valuable biological control agents that suppress their host populations. Factors introduced by the female wasp at parasitization play significant roles in facilitating successful development of the parasitoid larva either inside (endoparasitoid) or outside (ectoparasitoid) the host. Wasp venoms consist of a complex cocktail of proteinacious and non-proteinacious components that may offer agrichemicals as well as pharmaceutical components to improve pest management or health… CONTINUE READING
