Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis on adults of Cotesia plutellae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)



Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis on adults of Cotesia plutellae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)



Biocontrol Science and Technology 9(3): 435-440



To complement existing information on the mortality of larvae of the wasp Cotesia plutellae attacking lepidopteran larvae infected with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), the direct and indirect effects of the bacterium on adult wasp longevity and oviposition behaviour were tested. In one experiment with female parasitoids, mean longevity (+or-SEM) was not significantly different between females exposed to Bt (1.98+or-0.08 days) and those not exposed (2.18+or-0.13 days).
