Determination of the predatory and parasitic potential of the biological control agent Cephalonomia stephanoderis Betrem (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) for the control of coffee borer Hypothenemus hampei Ferr. at different densities



Determination of the predatory and parasitic potential of the biological control agent Cephalonomia stephanoderis Betrem (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) for the control of coffee borer Hypothenemus hampei Ferr. at different densities



IICA Miscellaneous Publication ( A1/SC-97-05): 297-301



The predatory and parasitic potential of Cephalonomia stephanoderis were studied in the laboratory at 28 degrees C and 74% RH, with various combinations of different developmental stages of the host Hypothenemus hampei (egg, large larva, pupa and adult, large larva and adult, egg and pupa, and small larva and adult). The parasitoid preyed on 38.4% and parasitized 11.7% of the hosts offered.
