Evaluation of Competition, Host Type and Host Location on Searching Ability and Parasitism Rates of Muscidifurax raptorellus and Nasonia vitripennis in New York Poultry Facilities
Rutz, D.A.; Kaufman, P.E.; Long, S.J.; Waldron, J.K.
Muscidifurax raptorellus and Nasonia vitripennis were examined in experimental areas and field-release environments to evaluate their individual and paired effectiveness in managing house fly, Musca domestica, populations. Laboratory-reared and field-collected pupae were evaluated to determine the impact of host type and host location on parasitism rates.
