Host acceptance changes of Catolaccus grandis an ectoparasite of the boll weevil after ten generations rearing on its factitious host Callosobruchus maculatus


, : Host acceptance changes of Catolaccus grandis an ectoparasite of the boll weevil after ten generations rearing on its factitious host Callosobruchus maculatus. 1998 Proceedings Beltwide Cotton Conferences, San Diego, California, USA, 5-9 January 1998 Volume 2: 1289-1292

Catolaccus grandis, an ectoparasitoid of the boll weevil was reared in laboratory conditions on the cowpea weevil (Callosobruchus maculatus), as an alternative host for cost reduction in a mass propagation system. Total fecundity, daily oviposition, net reproductive rate, and sex ratio were evaluated and compared to females reared on boll weevils. The data showed that to a certain degree, the cowpea weevil was a viable alternative host for the rearing of C. grandis.
