Parasites ofEctomyelois ceratoniae with biological studies onApanteles sp.Group ultor in Iraq
The parasitization percent was increased from 10 % during April to 35 % at the end of the pomegranate fruiting season at October, and female parasite preferred to infest the host larvae at the age of, 2–3 days than 7 day old.
The progeny production of a hymenopterous parasitoid,Apanteles sp. groupultor, as affected by temperature
The range of constant temperature did not greatly alter the progeny sex ratio when female parent had been mated, but male activity was adversely affected when both sexes were exposed to it without previous mating, resulting in a higher number of male progeny.
Effects of temperature and photoperiod on the development and oviposition ofApanteles sp. groupUltor [Hym.: Braconidae], a larval parasite of the carob mothEctomyelois ceratoniae [Lep.: Pyralidae]
Effect of photoperiod upon parasite development and parasitization of hosts were determined under daily photophases, of 24, 16, 12, 8 and 0 hours and no significant differences in oviposition rate were found among the 5 treatments.
