Inundative releases of hymenopterous parasitoids against Diatraea considerata (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) on sugarcane in northwestern Mexico
Journal of Entomological Science 40 (2), 231-233
Abstract: Diatraea considerata is an important pest of sugarcane in Sinaloa, Mexico, some distance from its usual distribution along the Mexican Pacific coast. The parasitoids Trichogramma atopovirilia and Macrocentrus prolificus were released in Sinaloa in an attempt to increase the natural enemies in that area. Both parasitoids were recovered from the release areas.
