Abstract

Augmentative releases of Spalangia endius Walker, conducted for 5 weeks against a field population of house flies, Musca domestica L., produced 100% parasitism by the 5th week. Population studies of the host insect enabled determination of ratios of parasites to host and percentage parasitism.
