So after extiguishing the roaches with a massive amount of wasps, the wasps will find out to do the same with humans… maybe they will grow in size, too.

#8 if there is a way that you can block dopamine dependent neurons there must be a way to stimulate them so it could be used for a better understanding or even treatment of Parkinson disease, also many drug addictions, including smoking, depends on dopamine receptors.

#11 this wouldn't happen. If too many roaches are killed the wasps won't find hosts for their eggs and that would result in less wasps and more roaches again. Nature is all about balance.
