Ecological considerations of the introduction of Cotesia flavipes Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) for biological control of Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in Africa



Ecological considerations of the introduction of Cotesia flavipes Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) for biological control of Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in Africa



Biocontrol News and Information 15(2): 19N-24N



The exotic parasitoid, Cotesia flavipes, was released in 1993 in Kenya for biological control of the introduced stemborer, Chilo partellus. The release has been criticised in some quarters as being potentially ecologically disruptive. This review of the programme explains why this is unlikely to be the case.
