Summary. Releases of the parasitoid Cotesia flavipes have been carried out since late in Colombia’s Cauca River Valley to complement other biological . Cotesia is a genus of Braconid wasps. Some species parasitize caterpillars of species considered as pests. Thus they are used as biocontrol agents. Cotesia. (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), used in producing the parasitoid, Cotesia flavipes Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), is representative of the problems faced by .

Insect Science and its Application, 12 Discussion The severity with which the effects of inbreeding are exhibited in a population is closely related to the reproduction type of a species [ 23 ]. Behaviour of the sugar-cane borer, Diatrpa spp. Get Access Get Access. Each biological characteristic was analyzed separately independent fixed variables, treatment and time; random variable, and replicates within treatmentand an appropriate covariance structure for each characteristic was used [ 21 ].
