Moreover, herein we are reporting for first time Anagrus nigriventris Girault (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) as an egg parasitoid
The awareness about parasitoid
vulnerability to hyperparasitism might also help in selection of an effective biocontrol agent.
In each jar (replication) twenty un- parasitized pupae were seeded on soil surface inside the jars and then different depths of plant debris were covered and three pairs of pupal parasitoid
A total of 430 individual parasitoid
wasps were collected at the Banhado dos Pachecos Wildlife Refuge (BPWR), belonging to 203 morphospecies and 20 families.
Why is Coccidoxenoides perminutus, a mealybug parasitoid
, ineffective as a biocontrol agent-Inaccurate measures of parasitism or low adult survival?
To obtain experienced parasitoid
females, recently emerged (<24h) wasps were placed into Petri dishes containing rice grains infested by weevil larvae and imagines of S.
According to these authors, aspects of the morphology of the parasitoid
and characteristics of the fruit are responsible for the strategy of parasitism and for the niche of each specie.
The aim of this study was to determine the parasitoid
complex that was associated with the black scale of olive trees, their relative abundance, and the rate of parasitism in an insecticide-free orchard that was located southeast of Brazil.
Dynamic host feeding in the parasitoid
Aphytis melinus: the balance between current and future reproduction.
, described as like a wasp and a relative of bees, punctures the scale of cocolisap and deposits its eggs into the host insect.
After determining the type of functional response, searching efficiency (a) and handling time (Th) parameters were estimated by random parasitoid
In the present paper, we report the parasitic relationship between the eulophid parasitoid
Melittobia australica Girault, 1912 and its host, the solitary wasp Sceliphron asiaticum (Linnaeus, 1758) (Sphecidae) in Brazil.
