Can you include Braconids as Nature's Ninjas? They can be a great help in the bio-control of many agricultural insects (i.e. larvae, eggs and nymphs) and can be mass-reared using Corcyra as host. Mass-production is very similar to trichogramma rearing.

Oh yes, they certainly are a Ninja. I just used a few selected good insects for the article. Just like I only used a few bad insects for the Dirty Half Dozen. There many more of them also.
