Interspecific competition among parasitoids plays a key role in the population dynamics of insect pests and may affect the outcome of biological control programs. The aim of this study was to examine competition between two parasitoids, Anagyrus pseudococci (Girault) and Leptomastix dactylopii Howard (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), of the vine mealybug Planococcus ficus (Signoret) (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) under laboratory conditions. The mealybug was parasitized by both parasitoid species at the… Expand
