Zelkowitz: “As it currently stands, the wasps need the virus to survive, because the virus helps the insects lay eggs in caterpillars. The virus also needs the wasp to survive, because the virus can only replicate in the wasp’s ovaries. The virus cannot replicate inside the caterpillar, because all of its replication machinery is inside the wasp.”
