This thesis treats mathematical models for host-parasitoid interactions. It is composed of three parts. In the first part, a class of such models is analyzed theoretically. It focuses on the phenomena of multiple coexistence equilibria of competing parasitoid species. The second part is about a model for determining how a parasitoid release should be timed to optimally control the invasive fruit fly Drosophila suzukii. The third part analyzes an experiment for releasing parasitoids in a greenhouse which is infested by D.suzukii. The models presented are used to discuss how to improve such biological control strategies.
