Laboratory studies on host habitat location of bracon brevicornis hymenoptera braconidae parasitoid of the larvae of sesamia cretica lepidoptera noctuidae in sorghum stalks



Laboratory studies on host habitat location of bracon brevicornis hymenoptera braconidae parasitoid of the larvae of sesamia cretica lepidoptera noctuidae in sorghum stalks



Anzeiger fuer Schaedlingskunde Pflanzenschutz Umweltschutz 55(10): 152-154



Females of the parasitoid, B. brevicornis were more strongly attracted to live larvae of S. cretica than any other accessible materials (e.g. stalk, frass, paralyzed larva or control). They were also attracted to paralyzed larvae but only when live larvae were absent. Males were more strongly attracted to stalk than to live larvae or any other available material. Stalk exhibited an important cue that directed the parasitoid males.
