Anagasta kuehniella is an important stored pollen pest in the 9th Region, causing serious losses to the beekeepers. Considering the lack of knowledge of its biology on this type of substrate, its vital and seasonal cycle was studied in artificial breedings with pollen belonging to Brassicaceae, Fabaceae and Asteraceae families. To find out the antagonists of the mediterranean flour moth, A. kuehiella were reared in the field and laboratory conditions, detecting the presence of a natural enemy. Results showed that A. kuehniella, is a bivoltine species, with a vital cycle of 68 days as follows: 5 days for the embryonic development, 46 days for the larval stage, 17 days for pupal period and 8 days as adult. The only founded antagonist found was Bracon hebetor Say (Hymenoptera, Braconidae).
