Anagyrus pseudococci

The first and second instars are transparent to pale white and have light brown, sclerotized mouthparts Daane et xnagyrus. You have successfully registered.

The young larvae are almost transparent to pale-white and have light brown, sclerotized mouthparts; elder larvae are white. These instars remain attached to the pweudococci integument by the egg stalk Daane et al. Crop area open field. Anagyrus pseudococci is economically important as a biological control agent for agricultural and greenhouse pest mealybugs and to control the citrus mealybug in its native range of Italy and Israel Noyes and Hayat Visual effect Parasitised mealybugs can be observed two to three weeks after deployment, depending on temperature.

It is an efficient, controlling enemy of the citrus mealybug Planococcus citrithe grape mealybug, the vine mealybug Planococcus ficus and the cypress mealybug Planococcus vovae. It is now widely established in California and used for biological control against the invasive vine mealybug Planococcus ficus Signoret Daane et al. Further details may be available for individual references in the Distribution Table Details section which can be selected by going to Generate Report.


Immediately upon emergence, the wasps will mate and begin searching for suitable hosts i. Adult females that lay fertilized eggs have a higher fecundity than females that lay unfertilized eggs Avidov et al. Green and Runner bean. Third and fourth instars hymenoptiform in shape are white with well-developed mandibles.

The body of the male is all black. Sweet pepper and Hot pepper. The egg stalk will protrude through the mealybug exoskeleton and is visible from the outside.

Producer of sticky traps BKS A. Recorded hosts include citrus mealybugs, Pseudococcus citriculus Green Avidov et al. Thanks for your interest in our work.

Production is carried out using innovative techniques under controlled quality assurance standards such as ISO Anagyrus-System Anagyrus pseudococci Anagyrus pseudococci is a well-known parasitoid of Planococcus spp.

Females prefers the third larval stage, but the second and fourth larval stage can be parasitized as well. The wings are hyaline with brownish veins Girault Females lay one egg that will develop inside a host, making it a solitary endoparasitoid; if multiple eggs are laid per host, only one develops Avidov et al. The male is 0. Unit of packaging Anagyrus pseudococci parasitic wasp Pack size: Although development may cease at slightly higher temperatures, Anagyrus pseudococci can survive brief periods of exposure to high or low temperatures Daane et al.


The other stages of development occur inside the host. Morphological, biological, and molecular comparisons among the different geographical populations of Anagyrus pseudococci Hymenoptera: Response by encapsulation of four mealybug species Homoptera: Encyrtidae as a parasitoid of the vine mealybug, Planococcus ficus Homoptera: For more information please contact us.

The ovipositor is short and only slightly exserted Noyes and Hayat Biology Back to Top Egg: Use as a biocontrol agent in greenhouses is more recent, with successes noted in greenhouses in Texas and Europe Noyes and Hayat The vine mealybug is of economic importance because it infests wine grapes and uses a variety of weeds as alternate hosts Gutierrez et al.

The adult wasp will emerge from a round hole in the mummy.

The head is flatter than that of the female. Keep the product at room temperature not refrigerated! Average lifespan for adults is 6.
