Integrated management of the uzi fly, Exorista bombycis (Louis) (Diptera: Tachinidae), a parasitoid of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L



Integrated management of the uzi fly, Exorista bombycis (Louis) (Diptera: Tachinidae), a parasitoid of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L



International Journal of Pest Management 39(4): 445-448



An IPM programme for control of Exorista bombycis on Bombyx mori was evaluated in 5 silk producing villages in Karnataka, India. The programme involved spraying an insecticide (a liquid formulation of 1% benzoic acid) against eggs and augmentative release of the indigenous gregarious arasitoid Nesolynx thymus for control of pupae. In all, 129 Bombyx mori rearings, consisting of 16575 'layings', were subjected to integrated management in September 1990 to August 1992.
