Beneficial Bug of the Day:  Trichogramma sp.   
These itty bitty wasps parasitize the eggs of a notorious crop pest, Helicoverpa zea, a pest so notorious it has 3 different names depending on which crop it is consuming…the Cotton Bollworm, Corn Earworm or the Tomato Fruitworm.  This tiny wasp has been released as biological control of the moth instead of using harmful pesticides.
Ask before you smush!
