Entomophagous insects for biocontrol of stored food pests


Abstract: Several reviews on biological control of stored-product pests have been published during the last 30 years reporting pros and cons of this approach for the management of different stored food pests. A brief summarization on the potential and practical application of the main predators [i. e. Xylocoris flavipes (Reuter)] and parasitoids [i. e. Anisopteromalus calandrae (Howard), Habrobracon hebetor (Say), Holepyris sylvanidis (Brèthes)] of some stored food pests, is herein presented and discussed.
