The effects of host density and temperature on the functional response of the bethylid parasitoid Cephalonomia waterstoni (Gahan) attacking fourth-instar rusty grain beetle, Cryptolestes ferrugineus (Stephens) were examined. Five temperatures and six host densities were used. A type II functional response model was fit separately to each temperature. The maximum attack rate ranged from 7.5 larvae/ ...
