Cuticular lipids of insects
TLDR
The structure of insect epicuticles and chemical composition of insect cuticular lipids are discussed with particular emphasis on the types in which hydrocarbons, was esters and fatty alcohols predominate.
NEMATODES AND NEMATOMORPHS AS CONTROL AGENTS OF GRASSHOPPERS AND LOCUSTS
TLDR
The relationship of nematodes and nematomorphs with grasshoppers and locusts is reviewed, emphasizing the actual or potential role of these parasitoids in microbial management and evidence that some, particularly mermithids, are important in the population dynamics of grasshopper and locUSTs.
Parasitism of grasshopper and locust eggs (Orthoptera: Acrididae) by Scelio species (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) in Southern Australia.
Surveys of Scelio spp., parasites of acridid eggs, were conducted in southern Australia during 1990-94. Parasitism of economically important grasshopper and locust species was frequently substantial
Effect of parasitism by Trichopsidea oestracea Westwood (Diptera: Nemestrinidae) on the susceptibility of Phaulacridium vittatum (Sjöstedt) (Orthoptera: Acrididae) to infection by Metarhizium
TLDR
Data suggest that treatment with the mycoinsecticide would have a benign effect on the parasitic stage of this important parasite, the treatment not changing the ratio of parasitised and unparasitised hosts in post-treatment populations.

  • 1 September 1976
TLDR
The worker caste was produced throughout the wet season and reached a peak after the dispersal of mature sexual castes, and for the rest of the year they were produced at a reduced level, dependent in part upon the harshness of the dry season.
Biology, ecology and systematics of Australian scelio : wasp parasitoids of locust and grasshopper eggs
TLDR
Biology, Ecology and Systematics of Australian Scelio provides wasp taxonomists, researchers of orthoptera and biological control workers with a basis for detailed studies elsewhere on this economically important group of insects.
PARASITISM OFCHORTOICETES TERMINIFERA(WALKER) (ORTHOPTERA: ACRIDIDAE) EGGS BYSCELIO PARVICORNISDODD (HYMENOPTERA: SCELIONIDAE)
TLDR
Chortoicetes terminifera is recorded for the first time as a host of Scelio parvicornis, and incubation experiments indicate that a facultative diapause occurred at the late first-instar larval stage in 36.3% of the population.
