Compatibility of the parasitoid Spalangia endius (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) and insecticides against Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) as evaluated by a new index.
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Various insecticides for the control of the house fly Musca domestica L. were tested for compatibility with a biological control agent, the pupal parasitoid Spalangia endius Walker. Bioassays used the mode in which each ...
Sublethal effects of imidacloprid exposure on Spalangia endius, a pupal parasitoid of filth flies
Parasitoids and neonicotinoids can both suppress economically harmful filth fly populations. However, sublethal effects of neonicotinoids have not previously been studied for commonly used species of filth fly parasitoids. ...
Mating status effects on sexual response of males and females in the parasitoid wasp Urolepis rufipes.
Although mate preferences are most commonly examined in females, they are often found in both sexes. In the parasitoid wasp Urolepis rufipes, both female and male mating status affected certain aspects of sexual interactions. ...
Substrate-borne marking in the parasitoid wasp Urolepis rufipes (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae)
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Many animals use pheromone marking as a way to identify their territory or other resources. Among insects, substrate-borne marking is frequently reported for females, which in many species make marks containing oviposition ...
Student Conduct Administrative Professionals: Relationships between Professional Identity, Training, Skills, and Experience

A diverse sample of 329 student conduct administrators, holding at least a Master’s degree, participated in a study to explore whether their level of specialized training, their need to stay up-to-date on current trends, ...
Benefit of polyandry in a monandrous species when females mate with already mated males
Female mating frequency varies among animal taxa. A benefit to females of remating has usually been found, but almost all tests have been with polyandrous species. A species being monandrous does not guarantee that mating ...
Decaying organic matter did not remove sublethal effect of imidacloprid on mating in Spalangia endius (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), a parasitoid of filth flies
(Oxford University Press, 2019)
Both the parasitoid wasp Spalangia endius Walker and the insecticide imidacloprid are used to control house flies. A recent study found that negative sublethal effects of imidacloprid on killing flies and on offspring ...
Effects of size and age of the host Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) on production of the parasitoid wasp Spalangia endius (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae)
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
One method of control of house flies, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae), and other filth flies is by repeated release of large numbers of pupal parasitoids such as Spalangia endius Walker. Rearing these parasitoids ...
