Apanteles sp.group ultor [Hym.: Braconidae] is the dominant and most widely distributed parasite ofEctomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller). The parasitization percent was increased from 10 % during April to 35 % at the end of the pomegranate fruiting season at October. Female parasite preferred to infest the host larvae at the age of, 2–3 days than 7 day old. The average number of host larvae parasitized by single female parasite was 58 under the rearing conditions of 27±2 °C., 55±10% RH and… 

Identification of parasitoids of Apomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller) (Lepidoptera, Pyralidae) on pomegranate in Isfahan province

There is some active parasitoid in the area which was identified as follows: Larval parasitoids: Apanteles myeloenta Wilkinson (Braconidae) and Bracon hebetor and pupae: Brachymeria minuta (Linnaeus) (Chalcididae).

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.

Effects of temperature and photoperiod on the development and oviposition ofApanteles sp. groupUltor [Hym.: Braconidae], a larval parasite of the carob mothEctomyelois ceratoniae [Lep.: Pyralidae]

Effect of photoperiod upon parasite development and parasitization of hosts were determined under daily photophases, of 24, 16, 12, 8 and 0 hours and no significant differences in oviposition rate were found among the 5 treatments.

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.

The progeny production of a hymenopterous parasitoid,Apanteles sp. groupultor, as affected by temperature

The range of constant temperature did not greatly alter the progeny sex ratio when female parent had been mated, but male activity was adversely affected when both sexes were exposed to it without previous mating, resulting in a higher number of male progeny.

Existence of two strains of Habrobracon hebetor (Hymenoptera: Braconidae): a complex in Thailand and Japan

DNA analysis and cross tests indicated that there are two distinct clades within H. hebetor: one contains insects from Thailand, Spain, India, and Barbados; the other contains insectsFrom Japan and the USA; there were no genetic differences or sexual isolation between Thai populations from different hosts.

Host-age-dependent parasitism and reproductive success of Apanteles stantoni (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a larval parasitoid of Diaphania indica (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)

The results indicated that the life stage of the host when the parasitoid larvae complete their final instar is particularly important for their development, and considering the efficiency of parasitism and reproduction, the second-instar larvae of D. indica is the most suitable stage for mass rearing A. stantoni in the laboratory.

Apanteles dignus Muesebeck, a solitary, primary, larval endoparasite of Keiferia lycopersicella (Walsingham), was studied under insectary conditions and Parasitization occurred when tomato fruit infested with tomato pinworm larvae were exposed to parasite females.

Comparisons of the temperature responses of the two parasites and their host revealed that the parasites have a higher power of increase than the host, and that A. scutellaris is better adapted to high temperatures than is A. subandinus.

It was concluded that burning allowed a rapid build up of the pest with initially relatively poor control by the parasites, and burning appeared to favour the pest.
