The effects of Spodoptera exigua (Hubner) egg age and duration of host-parasite contact on parasitism rate,progeny emergence rate and sex ratio of Telenomus remus Nixon were evaluated under laboratory conditions of (26±1)℃,RH(70±5)% and photoperiod 12 h:12 h.Parasitism rate,progeny emergence rate and sex ratio of T.remus on 6 h-old first-day eggs of S.exigua after 24 h contact were 56.97%,89.11% and 87.63%,respectively,compared to 54.47%,95.37% and 88.72%,respectively on 6 h-old second-day eggs… Expand
