Thermoperiod effects on diapause induction in Microplitis croceipes (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)

, : Thermoperiod effects on diapause induction in Microplitis croceipes (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). Environmental Entomology 20(5): 1444-1446

Daily thermoperiods of 27-18 degrees C (square wave) induced diapause in Microplitis croceipes in continuous darkness, whereas diapause was inhibited in continuous light. Scotophase temperatures were more important than photophase temperatures in diapause induction when photophase was held constant and scotophase increased (increasing light-to-dark ratio). Conversely, when scotophase was held constant and photophase was increased, diapause decreased. This suggests that the ratio of light to dark may be critical in diapause induction of M. croceipes. In addition, diapause induction increased when low temperature coincided with the scotophase of the photoperiod.
