Abstract

Parasitoids of Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in Colima, Mexico.

Abstract

To detect the local parasitoids that attack the invasive pest spottedwinged Drosophila, Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, sentinel traps were placed from September 2014 to February 2015, at Colima, Mexico. Four generalist parasitoids (Leptopilina boulardi Barbotin, Carton & Kelner-Pillault, Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae Rondani, Spalangia simplex Perkins, and Trichopria drosophilae Perkins) were determined as biological control agents.
