A significant, although low, number of the hymenopterous parasites, Lysiphlebus testaceipes (Cresson), emerged from mummies of the parasitized greenbugs, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) during refrigeration at 3.3°C. After refrigeration, high numbers of adult progeny emerged at 24°C from parasite mummies stored at –4.4, –1.1, and 3.3°C for 7 days. The difference in the emergence numbers between the temperatures was non-significant, as were the differences between adult progeny numbers from… CONTINUE READING
