Sushil, S.N., Mishra, Y.D., Bhattacharya, A., & Kumar, P. 1999 Screening of some egg parasitoids against Pseudohypatopa pulverea (Meyr.) (Lepidoptera: Blastobasidae): A serious predator of lac insect, Kerria lacca (Kerr).. Journal of Entomological Research. New Delhi 23(4): 365-368.
Notes: Five hymenopterous egg parasitoids, viz., Trichogramma brasiliensis, T. chilonis, T. pretiosum, Trichogrammatoidea bactrae (Trichogrammatidae) and Telenomus remus (Scelionidae) were screened against Pseudohypatopa pulverea, a serious predator of lac insect, for assessing their parasitising efficiency. The maximum parasitisation was observed in the case of T. brasiliensis (56.73%) and lowest by T. remus (17.56%). The emergence of the adult parasitoids from the parasitised eggs was maximum in T. pretiosum (75.00%) followed by T. chilonis (72.85%), T. brasiliensis (66.04%), T. bactrae (34.70%) and lowest by T. remus (43.75%). All the five parasitoids appeared to be promising for the biological control of the predator.
