Sclerodermus pupariae Yang et Yao(Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) is a parasitoid on Agrilus planipennis(Coleoptera: Buprestidae), first found in Tianjin Municipality. The parasitoid is an effective biological agent for young larvae of the oak longhorned beetle, Massicus raddei(Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), a serious pest in northeastern China. For applying it in biocontrol of the cerambycid, we conducted the studies on dertermining the proper host developing stage for releasing it and the releasing…

Effect of parasitoid density on the timing of parasitism and development duration of progeny in Sclerodermus pupariae (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae)
TLDR
It was shown that the time to first attack, paralyzing time, pre–oviposition period and ovipositionperiod of foundresses were significantly negatively associated with parasitoid density, but that developmental duration of progeny was only affected at the larval stage.
Evaluating host location in three native Sclerodermus species and their ability to cause mortality in the wood borer Aromia bungii (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in laboratory
TLDR
It is suggested that S. guani would be the best candidate for biological control of the immature stages of A. bungii, and that more field trials should be done in the future.
