The known biology of Bareogonalos canadensis (Harrington) is based on literature records of six collections from three areas in the Pacific Northwest. The objective of this study was to obtain fundamental knowledge on the biology of B. canadensis, especially its distribution, abundance, and host species, as well as its potential for biological control of yellowjackets.

Record of Parasitoids in nests of social wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Polistinae) The aim of this study was to record the parasitoid species found in social wasps nests sampled in different localities in Brazil and investigate the existence of preferential host-parasite associations in different tribes of Neotropical paper wasps.

They have a truly incredible parasitoid – the trigonalid wasp Bareogonalos canadensis (Harrington) – but that is a story for another post. The primary source of Western Yellowjacket mortality in my yard appears to be me, so there are lots of them buzzing my flowers for prey and my barbecue for meat.

Most beneficial insect parasitoids are wasps or flies, although some rove beetles (see Predators) and other insects may have life stages that are parasitoids. Most insect parasitoids only attack a particular life stage of one or several related species.

The immature parasitoid develops on or within a pest. A new subgenus of the nomadinine genus Bareogonalos (Trigonalidae) is described with B. huisuni Yamane et Yamane as the type species. A trigonalid obtained from a Provespa nest is described as B Author: Seiki Yamane.

Because these two species attack the same host stages (fourth instar and early pupa), it probably is not advanta- geous to release both species.

When died, the weight of dead parasitoids was measured with an electronic microblance. Forewing length of the parasitoids also was measured under a stereomicroscope.

In all, 28 females and 23 males were used in this experiment. Introduction. Eusocial groups consist of overlapping generations of workers collectively caring for the offspring of the queen caste.

Abstract. The defense reactions of insect hosts towards parasitoids and the means by which parasitoids sometimes evade the host’s defense have been the subject of numerous reviews (Salt, a,; Nappi, a; Whitcomb et al., ; Jackson et al., ; Lafferty and Crichton, ).There is, however, very little consensus of opinion concerning the mechanism Cited by:   The developmental sequence of the asexual generation of the gall wasp Acraspis hirta Bassett (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on its host plant Quercus prinus (Fagaceae) is described from a site in New Jersey.

Wasps of the cosmopolitan genus Polistes (the only genus in the tribe Polistini) are the most familiar of the polistine wasps, and are the most common type of paper wasp in North America. Walter Ebeling coined the vernacular name "umbrella wasps" for this genus in to distinguish it from other types of paper wasp, in reference to the form of their : Insecta.

Since its introduction to the US inits invasion suc-cess has been attributed, in part, to a lack of parasites or parasitoids infecting this population. This is despite the number of parasites which infest the native population and the generalist polistine parasites and parasitoids docu.
