The effect of parasitoid age on the fecundity and sex ratio of Aenasius bambawalei Hayat (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) was determined on different life stages of the host Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) by keeping both at 272C and 655% relative humidity during parasitization. Fecundity of the female parasitoid did not change significantly during the first 5 days of its life span but afterwards it decreased significantly under laboratory conditions.
The parasitoid that emerged were used for further parasitization of host eggs.
Preference among the 2 host types was assessed using Student's t-test (P < 0.05) to compare parasitization of Pigma[R]-marked hosts versus clean hosts, as well as probes and parasitization between parasitized hosts and non-parasitized hosts or between conspecific-parasitized and self-parasitized hosts.
