In Central Europe the family ichneumon wasps includes most species of Hymenoptera. Ichneumonidae includes the largest species of parasitoid Hymenoptera and is divided into 20 subfamilies.|
|Ichneumon wasps reach body lengths of 10-50 mm. The colouration of their bodies varies. . The basic colour is often black or reddish-brown. Many species have markings in red, white, yellow or brown. The antennae of most species have more than 16 segments...|

Endoparasites are natural enemies of the Chrysanthemum leaf miner larvae, for example, the larvae of the ichneumon wasps Dacnusa sibirica and Diglyphus isaea. The ichneumon wasps lay their eggs in the larvae of the Chrysanthemum leaf miner. The hatching wasp larvae cause mass deaths of the host larvae by feeding on their insides. Amongst humans, the Chrysanthemum leaf miner ( is regarded as a pest when encountered in...|
|Amblyteles armatorius (synonym Ichneumon luteus) is a species in the order hymenopterans (Hymenoptera), the suborder Apocrita, the superfamily Ichneumonoidea, the family ichneumon wasps (Ichneumonidae), the subfamily Ichneumoninae and the tribe Ichneumonini.

|The black slip wasp (Pimpla instigator) belongs to the family ichneumon wasps (Ichneumonidae), in the order Hymenoptera, the suborder Apocrita and the superfamily Ichneumonoidea. They are widespread and commonly encountered in Europe and North Africa. The black slip wasp reaches body lengths of 10-24 mm. The body is black, sometimes with red legs.

Ichneumon wasps (Ichneumonidae) are the primary natural enemies of Lygus pratensis. |
|Some species of ichneumon wasps are: Rhyssa persuasoria, Therion circumflexum, Dolichomitus dux), black slip wasp (Pimpla instigator) and Protichneumon pisorius.|
