Ashfaque Ali Dhaunroo


Biology and parasitization efficiency of Aenasius bambawalei Hayat (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) on mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley were studied under laboratory condition. The rate of development of parasitoid varied on different life stages of mealybug. Total development time from oviposition to adult emergence was shortest on second instar followed by third instar and adult. Sex ratio of parasitoid also varied greatly on different life-stages.
