Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

I highly do not believe there is any Wolbachia in my insect. I believe this because local data has shown only an 8% chance of a Lepidoptera containing Wolbachia. The gel electrophoresis also produced a negative result for Wolbachia.
