Interactions between Solenopsis invicta (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), Rhopalosiphum maidis (Homoptera: Aphididae), and the parasitoid Lysiphlebus testaceipes Cresson (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae)



Interactions between Solenopsis invicta (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), Rhopalosiphum maidis (Homoptera: Aphididae), and the parasitoid Lysiphlebus testaceipes Cresson (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae)



Annals of the Entomological Society of America 842: 158-164



In the presence of Solenopsis invicta, adult emergence of the parasitoid Lysiphlebus testaceipes from laboratory colonies of Rhopalosiphum maidis was reduced. Parasitoids abandoned an attack when ants were within a few mm and searched elsewhere, increasing search time. However, the increased searching time in the laboratory was compensated by a reduction in parasitoids' resting time resulting in similar levels of parasitism between the controls and the ant-infested containers.
