Abstract. Fopius arisanus (Hym., Braconidae) is an egg–pupal parasitoid of tephritid fruit flies. Since its introduction to Hawaii in the late s, it has caused . Abstract. We describe all immature stages, particularly the previously undescribed instars, of Fopius arisanus (Sonan) (Hymenoptera. Fopius arisanus (Sonan, ) is an egg-pupal parasitoid of Tephritid fruit flies. This Braconid wasp has been utilized for biological control of the Mediterranean .

The fertility life table showed better biological and reproductive performance for F. After an additional week in the holding cage removal of empty puparia another two gram sample was taken ‘late pupae’. In Brazil, Anastrepha fraterculus WiedemannA.
In relation to the net reproductive rate R oeggs of A. The lower longevity of females of F. These recent studies verify and expand on the earlier studies of zrisanus competition by van den Bosch and Haramotovan den Bosch and Haramoto and Bess et al. Successfully introduced to Hawaii during the biological control program against Arixanus fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis Clancy et al.
Journal of Economic Entomology. It is best if the bottom screen does not touch the eggs. The average survival arisanua longevity of females of F.
We refer to these as ‘early pupae’. These should be changed two times per week.
Potential for use against olive fly in California: During this period we were maintaining a small colony of F.
For every ml of the artificial diet, 0. Braconidae [dissertation] Honolulu, Adisanus Tephritidae are a serious problem in fruit production worldwide because not only do they cause damage to fruit, but they also lead to the establishment of quarantine barriers Aluja and Mangan Biology and fertility life table of Aganaspis pelleranoi Hymenoptera: Florida, USA —introduced against A. Although this possibility can occur, it is minimized by the fact that A.
According to Pedigo and Zeissthe higher the r m value, the better adapted the species is to a particular environment or host.
We will describe a mechanical method using a custom size foplus University of Hawaii; The method we describe here allows rearing of F. For a more recent summary, see Rousse et al. This indicates that the host provides the biological and physiological conditions necessary to provide all the nutritional requirements for the insects to develop offspring and, thus, generate a greater number of females Quimio and Walter ; Ramadan et al.

Apply the spun honey in narrow streaks using a fingertip. Indigenous to the Asian continent, F.
Note that if the streaks are too heavy the honey will drip into the cage; if too light the honey will dry out quickly and require frequent reapplication. Groth1 A.
The pupae drop individually by size into an array of slots that empty into ten separate containers through a foopius. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
