Host selection and strain occurrence in Apanteles flavipes (Cameron) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and its bearing on biological control of graminaceous stem-borers (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Host selection and strain occurrence in Apanteles flavipes (Cameron) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and its bearing on biological control of graminaceous stem-borers (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)



Bulletin of Entomological Research, 714: 575-581



Females of the Pakistan strain of Apanteles flavipes (Cam.) (which originates from Japan and is maintained on larvae of Chilo partellus (Swinh.) reared on maize) were readily attracted to maize stems but not to sugar-cane stems in the laboratory. Ovipositor probing occurred in the presence of unwashed host larvae, particularly of C. partellus and/or frass from host larvae fed on maize.
