Factors affecting the rate of attack by Cotesia rubecula (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)


Ecological Entomology, 152: 163-168
Factors affecting the rate of attack by Cotesia rubecula (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
The relationship between responses of the parasitoid Cotesia rubecula to kairomones produced by feeding larvae of Pieris rapae and patterns of parasitism was studied on cabbages in field cages in British Columbia. Adult parasitoids aggregated in patches with the highest densities of host larvae but there was no commensurate increase in the rate of attack in these patches. The rate of attack was not limited by the availability of eggs.
