Calyx fluid proteins of two Cotesia sesamiae (Cameron) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) biotypes in Kenya: implications to biological control of the stem borer Busseola fusca (Fuller) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
(Taylor & Francis, 2006)
Cotesia sesamiae (Cameron) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is an indigenous larval endoparasitoid of Busseola fusca (Fuller) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in sub-Saharan Africa. In Kenya, reports suggest that C. sesamiae occurs as ...
Geographic distribution, host range and perennation of Cotesiasesamiae and Cotesia flavipes Cameron in cultivated and natural habitats in Kenya
Field surveys were carried out in four agroecological zones to assess the geographic distribution, host range and perennation of Cotesia sesamiae and Cotesia flavipes in cultivated and natural habitats in Kenya. The ...
Distribution and species composition of stemborers and their natural enemies in maize and sorghum in Ethiopia
(Cambridge University Press, 2001-12)
Surveys were conducted to determine the species composition of stemborers and their natural enemies in maize and sorghum in 1999 and 2000 in eastern, northern, southern and western Ethiopia. The six species of stemborers ...
Biology of Sturmiopsis parasitica (Diptera: Tachinidae) and Suitability of Three Cereal Stem Borers (Lepidoptera: Crambidae, Noctuidae) for Its Development
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
The development of Sturmiopsis parasitica (Curran) (Diptera: Tachinidae) and levels of parasitism of its hosts, Busseola fusca Fuller, Sesamia calamistis Hampson (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), and Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) ...
Location of stemborer pupae in various host plants and implications for the performance of natural enemies with emphasis on the pupal parasitoid Xanthopimpla stemmator (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)
(Cambridge University Press, 2007)
In order to predict host accessibility by the pupal parasitoid Xanthopimpla stemmator (Thunberg), four grass species (Sorghum bicolor, Pennisetum purpureum, Sorghum arundinaceum and Zea mays) were sampled for stemborer ...
