(Article chronicle: Received: 08-02-2015; Revised: 11-03-2015; Accepted: 15-03-2015) ABSTRACT: Studies were carried out to study the effect of storage of Aenasius bambawalei Hayat in adult stage at low temperatures viz., 5, 10, 15 and 20°C for different durations (1to 8 weeks) on the survival, longevity, fecundity and per cent females emerging in F1 progeny. One-day-old parasitoid adults were stored at each of the temperatures at 75 per cent relative humidity in full darkness. Key biological… CONTINUE READING
