Biology of latibulus argiolus hymenoptera ichneumonidae a parasitoid of the paper wasp polistes biglumis hymenoptera vespidae

Biology of latibulus argiolus hymenoptera ichneumonidae a parasitoid of the paper wasp polistes biglumis hymenoptera vespidae

Kontyu 51(3): 426-434

The ichneumonid wasp L. argiolus, a parasitoid of P. biglumis, has spring and summer forms parasitizing mainly pre- and post-emergence colonies of the host, respectively. Parasitoid females spend an average of 20 min before alighting on the nest and deposit eggs on the wall of cells containing various developmental stages. However, only eggs laid in cells of mature larvae seem to have a chance to develop into adults. Host wasps, when they detect a parsitoid, perform alarm behavior, but its communicative effectiveness is unclear. Nearly all colonies have at least 1 cell parasitized by the end of the season. Due to this parasitoid, P. biglumis colonies suffer on an average 20% loss of foundress-reared workers and 7 and 13% loss of reproductives in 2 different areas.
