Each card, with 300 eggs of this alternative host, was placed in a test tube (12.0 x 2.0 cm) with 30 newly emerged thelytokous
females of one of the Trichogramma species (STOUTHAMER et al., 1993) at a ratio of one parasitoid for every 10 eggs, and parasitism was permitted for five hours (PRATISSOLI; PARRA, 2000; SOARES et al., 2007).
