Abstract

The side effects of the most common used insecticides in citrus orchards such as spirotetramat, pyriproxyfen, spinosad, chlorpyrifos-ethyl 480, paraffinic mineral oil and mineral oil on pupa and adult stages of Lysiphlebus confusus Tremlay and Eady, L. fabarum (Marshall) and L. testaceipes (Cresson) were evaluated under guidelines of IOBC/WPRS. Contact toxicity on adult parasitoids and dipping method for pupal stage of parasitoids were used to evaluate potential adverse effects of insecticides on the survival and the reproductive capacity of the parasitoid.
