... by The Company of Biologists Ltd 2015 Summary: We show that venom injection by the jewel wasp to either the subesophageal ganglion or the central complex in the brain is, by itself, sufficient to induce a long-term hypokinetic state in its cockroach prey. Cockroach Wasp Parasitoid Central...

... of dietary protein. We further predicted that this response would enhance the melanization response, a component of the immune system that acts against parasitoids. We challenged the immune system using either tachinid fly parasitoids or a bead injection technique that has been used in studies to simulate...

... ( Helluy, 1983 ). In response to the attack of Cotesia glomerata parasitoid cocoons, manipulated caterpillar hosts behave as a bodyguard, spinning a silk web over the parasitoid cocoons and displaying violent head thrashing to knock off natural enemies ( Brodeur and Vet, 1994 ). Also, in addition...

...Roberto Ferrarese; Jorge Morales; Daniel Fimiarz; Bruce A. Webb; Shubha Govind SUMMARY Parasitoid wasps produce virulence factors that bear significant resemblance to viruses and have the ability to block host defense responses. The function of these virulence factors, produced predominantly...

... their death. The next generation emerged from the host puparia after a development time of 14–15 days. Parasitoid pupae were removed from host puparia 1–2 days prior to eclosion and kept individually in 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tubes until emergence. Mated females were obtained by keeping one virgin female...

... egg parasitoids. Odour from twigs of Pinus sylvestris laden with egg masses of the pine sawfly Diprion pini attracts the eulophid egg parasitoid Chrysonotomyia ruforum. Volatiles released from pine twigs without diprionid eggs are not attractive. Oviposition by the sawfly onto pine needles induces...

...J. M. SCHIMIDT; J.J. B. SMITH The parasitoid wasp Trichogramma minutum Riley (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Trichogrammatidae) adjusts its progeny allocation and host examining behaviour to the exposed volume of its host -- an insect egg. The female wasp examines a potential host by walking over its...

...J. M. Schmidt; J. J.B. Smith The parasitoid wasps of the genus Trichogramma use the surface curvature of their insect egg hosts to set an upper limit to the number of progeny allocated to the host, as well as the duration of their host examination. In addition, host recognition and host acceptance...
