Parasitism preference of Cotesia plutellae to host age and the effect of parasitism on the development and food consumption of the host Plutella xylostella



Parasitism preference of Cotesia plutellae to host age and the effect of parasitism on the development and food consumption of the host Plutella xylostella



Acta Phytophylacica Sinica 26(1): 25-29



A laboratory study showed that the parasitoid Cotesia plutellae could attack all four instars of diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) larvae, but preferred 2nd and 3rd instars when 2nd, 3rd and 4th instars were provided simultaneously. Preference indexes were 0.37, 0.39 and 0.24 for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th instars, respectively.
