Exporting the unexpected

I knew that New Zealand exported honeybees around the world, but I certainly didn't know they also export bumble bees to the EU and Turkey, leafcutting bees to Australia and even wasps to Japan. I guess the bumble bees are exported for pollination, but I'm not so sure about the leafcutters and the wasps — maybe as bio-controls of aphids?
