Host and host instar preference of Apanteles carpatus (Say) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) a possible parasitoid for biological control of clothes moths (Lepidoptera: Tineidae)






Journal of Stored Products Research 35(3): 197-213

Host and host instar preference of Apanteles carpatus (Say) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) a possible parasitoid for biological control of clothes moths (Lepidoptera: Tineidae)

The wasp Apanteles carpatus is a solitary koinobiont endoparasitoid of Tineola bisselliella and Tinea pellionella larvae. A. carpatus is capable of complete development in all larval stages of T. bisselliella. The developmental period is significantly longer in younger host instars than in older prepupal stages of the host. The larval parasitoid stays dormant in young hosts until they provide enough resources for development; young hosts do not stop feeding when parasitized. Based on dual-choice-experiments, A. carpatus is more closely associated with T. pellionella than with T. bisselliella; however, parasitoid conditioning seems possible. The potential use of A. carpatus in classical biological control of clothes moths is discussed using data from a field study.
