Title: Native Southern Ontario wasps are only mildly effective at controlling Tarnished plant bug populations
Author: Broadbent, A.B.; Lachance, S.; Sears, M.K.; Goulet, H.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Six native wasp species were found to parasitize Tarnished plant bugs in southern Ontario alfalfa fields, but overall rates of parasitism were low (below 11%). These results suggest that one or more European parasitoid wasps may help to control Tarnished plant bug numbers.
