Parasitoids of Fruit-Infesting Tephritidae

Braconidae on economically important fruit flies in French Polynesia. Streak undiluted spun honey along the top of the cages at least three times per week or whenever the available honey is dry. The low percentage of fruit flies is partially due to to the earlier emergence of flies compared with parasites, so most flies remained in the holding container.

In species of the Anastrepha genus, the development of F. However, males of F. Use a clean 2.


Biology of Fopius arisanus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in Two Species of Fruit Flies

In this protocol and associated video article we describe an optimized method for rearing F. Abstract Fopius arisanus Sonan, Hymenoptera: Tephritidae with a braconid parasitoid and a novel bait spray.

At the end of the experiment, the puparia that remained intact were dissected to check for the presence of flies or parasitoids that did not emerge to determine the true parasitism rate. During the first three months of the mean proportion parasites in the enriched sample was 0. Biological parameters of F.

The tissue should stick easily to the agar because of surface moisture. This study investigated the biology of F. The better biological conditions found in the eggs of C.

The processes to collect the larvae and to condition the pre-pupae and pupae in vermiculite were the arisanuz as those proposed by Salles and Nunes et al. Yield of enriched pupal diameter 1. The Biology of Opius oophilus Fullaway Hymenoptera: Twenty pairs of F.

This better performance of F. A listing of F. Nishida and Haramoto tested the capability of F. After an additional week in the holding cage removal of empty puparia another two gram sample was taken ‘late pupae’.


At pupation, the vermiculite was sifted through a galvanized sieve 0.
