This wasp is a gregarious idiobiont ectoparasitoid that attacks late stage larvae and pupae of the emerald ash borer in China. The natural rate of parasitism of larvae can be as high as 10% and it produces an average of 35 offspring. In China it is being used for the natural biological control of several buprestid and cerambycid pests.
