The goal of this project is to evaluate the potential for encouraging long term, stable biological control interactions between the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris, and an introduced parasitoid wasp, Peristenus digoneutis. We are investigating biological control of the tarnished plant bug in strawberry.
