Parasitic insects and mites as potential biocontrol agents for a devastative pest of tomato, Tuta absoluta Meyrick (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in the world: a review
TLDR
In the present review, the importance of different egg-, larval- and pupal-parasitoids, belonging to several insect orders and families, as well as some Pyemotidae mites, was discussed.
Potential of Biological Control Agents Against Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae): Current Knowledge in Argentina
TLDR
The prospects for implementing experimental augmentative releases of P. dignus to control the pest are discussed, a candidate selected considering various positive biological traits and because of its simple mass production and manipulation compared with other antagonists of T. absoluta.
Analysis of biological traits of Anagyrus cachamai and Anagyrus lapachosus to assess their potential as biological control candidate agents against Harrisia cactus mealybug pest in Puerto Rico
TLDR
Two South American parasitoids have a balanced sex ratio, exhibited a development time synchronized with that of the host, and presented differences in their reproductive biology and development time, which make them promising candidates for introduction as biological control agents against the HCM pest in Puerto Rico.
Functional response and egg distribution among hosts by Pseudapanteles dignus, a larval endoparasitoid of Tuta absoluta
TLDR
P. dignus, a candidate for biocontrol of the South American tomato leafminer, showed a sigmoid shape functional response and a contagious distribution of eggs among hosts, favouring self‐superparasitism and laying a similar number of eggs in each superparasitized host at each T. absoluta larval density.
