While S. cerealella is produced at mechanised industrial scale in some countries of former Soviet Union, the mechanisation of C. cephalonica is still not completely successful. ) which could be most destructive in many Asian countries and could completely upset the commercial programmes of Trichogramma supply. However, in China, eggs from female pupae of eri silkworm extracted through a machine invented in that country have been used for commercial production of the above parasitoids. In addition, Chinese scientists have successfully developed production of artificial eggs based on pupal haemolymph of the above silkworm as the main ingredient through a machine developed there.

Semifumatum males and T. maltbyi females and T. californicum males. Nagarkatti and Fazaluddin (1973) also found total reproductive isolation between populations of T. minutum received from Berkley and the one from Indiana, on either side of Rocky Mountains, hence are widely separated from each other, and hence both should be considered sibling species with respect to each other. In the crosses between T. japonicum and T. W. of Bangalore at the base of Western Ghats), marked reproductive isolation was observed.

2001) used ITS-2 region of the rDNA to identify two closely related Trichogramma species: T. rojasi and T. lasallei. The ITS-2 sequences of each species were different in length and nucleotide position, showing that they are distinct. The results show that the technique is a good tool to identify Trichogramma cryptic species. Chen et al. (2001) studied 10 isofemale lines of T. ostriniae and T. chilonis. The Internal Noncoding Transcribed Spacer-1 region of ribosomal DNA of T. 3 %, and this sequence varied amongst individuals in the numbers of simple sequence repeats.
