2. To transfer the concept and technology of IPM utilizing several parasitoids supplemented with microbials based on ETL for the control of DBM to other lowland areas of the Philippines.
Biosafety measures 1. Containment capabilities of laboratory- very well equipped for mass rearing the mentioned parasitoids.

2. Personnel awareness of biosafety in laboratory.

3. “Biosafetiness” of equipment- parasitoids are confined in cages while being mass- reared.
