- ... Anastatus bifasciatus (Geoffroy) is the most widespread native egg parasitoid of the invasive agricultural pest Halyomorpha halys (Stål) in Europe and considered as promising candidate for augmentative biological control. In this context, the parasitoid’s reproductive parameters, longevity, phenology, and temperature requirements for development were studied. In addition, the potential of using st ...

- ... The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål), native to East Asia, emerged as an invasive pest in Europe in the 2000s. In its native range, Trissolcus japonicus (Ashmead) is the dominant egg parasitoid of H. halys, and thus it has been considered for classical biological control in countries invaded by the pest. A survey of native egg parasitoids conducted in 2017 and 2018 with frozen, ...
