The presence of natural enemies of the carob moth was investigated on carob trees, acacias and citrus trees in the various regions of Israel. The highest number of parasite species was found on carob trees, while only a few were observed on acacias and a single one on citrus. A list is given of the natural enemies of the carob moth.RésuméIls ont été étudiés sur le Carroubier, l'Acacia et les agrumes dans diverses régions d'Israel. Le nombre le plus élevé d'espèces de parasites a été relevé sur… 

Carob pests in the Mediterranean region: bio-ecology, natural enemies and management options

An overview on the bio-ecology, natural enemies and pest contol tools of the main pests infesting carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua L.), pods and seeds in the Mediterranean region is provided herein.

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.

Environmental and maternal effects on host selection and parasitism success of Bracon hebetor

The rearing history was influential on the parasitism preference and success: a better performance of the parasitoid was obtained when it was reared on its original host compared with an intermediate host, E. kuehniella.

Performance of Habrobracon hebetor (Say) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) parasitizing Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on different pomegranate cultivars

Dynamic variations in the quality of host plant affected the performance and multitrophic communications behavior of H. hebetor and the biochemical traits of pomegranate cultivars, and Shahvare-Danesefid cultivar was found to be a more appropriate host than other cultivars to develop H.hebetor.

Biology ofSpectrobates ceratoniae on almonds in Israel

Field observations and recording of carob moth infestation in almonds revealed the following pattern of generation sequence: the moths overwinter as larvae in nuts left on the trees after harvest, and emerge as adults from mid-March until June, with a peak emergence in April-May.

A field screening of pomegranate cultivars for resistance to the carob moth, Ectomyelois ceratoniae, and compatibility with its larval parasitoids

The use of resistant cultivars could be an efficient pest management strategy against the carob moth Ectomyelois ceratoniae in pomegranate orchards and three parasitoid species were collected and identified from the pest larvae, and A. myeloenta was the most abundant species.

La technique combinant l’utilisation des deux axillaires semble etre une piste permettant de limiter the deterioration of the valeur marchande des dattes.

Is host age an important factor in the bionomics of Apanteles myeloenta (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)?

Wasps that started their development in second instar hosts produced the highest progeny and those that started in third instarhosts survived as adults for longest, and Logistic regression indicated a type II functional response to different densities of all the stages of the host tested.
