Chalcidoidea are economically and biologically one of the most important groups of insects, and yet very little is known of their taxonomy (identification) or relationships. Our research is identifying new potential biological control agents for use against pestiferous leafminers on citrus, whitefly on citrus, aphids on wheat and other crops, and for cynipoid wasps, against pestiferous flies.

Mass Rearing and Field Release of an Eulophid Wasp, [11/11/ PM] If leaf miners. Tamarixia mass-rearing facility at Dundee utilizes a 36 KW generator to back-up ventilation and cooling systems in both the greenhouse and psyllid rearing rooms, and to power the water pump; the T.

Tamarixia radiata (Waterston, ) is the main parasitoid of Diaphorina citri (Kuwayama, ), and has been used in classical biological control programs in several countries.

The current study investigated the biology and determined the fertility life table of T. radiata in different temperatures, to obtain information to support the establishment of a biological control program Cited by: Mass Release of the Parasitic Wasp Tamarixia radiata to Enhance Control of Asian citrus psyllid Parasitism rates in the field cages averaged %.

1/inch) and, along with braconids, are the most important of the parasitic wasps in many agricultural crops. Several kinds of agricultural insects are attacked by eulophid wasps including caterpillars, beetle larvae, psyllids and leafminer flies.

The ability to incorporate the results of these studies and future field studies into the rearing and preparation of biological control agents for release in the field will allow us to become more effective biocontrol practitioners in the future.
