Abstract:

The effect of various diets on longevity of Glyptapantales agamemnonis and Meteorus pulchricornis, endoparasitoids of S. obliqua (Walker) were studied in the laboratory. Our results showed significant difference (p<0.05) in the longevity of G. agamemnonis and M. pulchricornis when fed on different diets. The parasitoid lived significantly longer when fed on 20% honey solution as compared to 20% sucrose and Honey-Sucrose Solution. Nonetheless, longevity of parasitoid females who fed on 20% honey solution live longer as compared to those fed on 20% Sucrose solution, difference being non-significant. Overall, result showed that 20% honey was a more suitable diet for both parasitoid females’ viz. G. agamemnonis and M. pulchricornis as compared to other diets.
