Abstract

  Maize is third most important crop of Pakistan that attacked by many insect pests, among all these Chilo partellusis a notorious pest of crop. Chilo partellus is caused huge economic losses of crops in Pakistan. An experimental study was conducted in insect Bio Control Lab at the Department of Entomology, PMAS UAAR during 2018 to check the effect of Cotesia flavipes on Chilo partellus under control conditions. Adult duration of Cotesia sp. was 41.46 hours. Rate of parasitism was 76 percent in 4th instar larvae of C. partellus. Mean number of pupae per larvae were 41-46 pupae per larvae. The mean pupal duration of Cotesia sp. was 8 days. Rate of parasitism was 73 percent in 3rd instar larvae of C. partellus. From each parasitized larvae the mean adult emergence was 28 adults per larvae. The mean pupal duration of Cotesia sp. was 9 days.
