SANTOS, Rodrigo Souza; COSTA, Valmir Antonio  and  FONSECA, Fernando da Silva. New models of emergence traps for endophytic egg parasitoids capture. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.7, pp.2195-2198.  Epub Aug 14, 2009. ISSN 0103-8478.

For strain selection studies of natural enemies from the field, studies of behavior or even of taxonomy, capture of alive insects are of great importance. One alternative for obtaining adult parasitoids (Hymenoptera) is the use of emergency traps. Therefore, the objective of this work was to propose two models of emergency traps (traps like "box" and "bottle"), for obtaining alive endophytic egg parasitoids. The two models proposed were efficient in the capture of alive parasitoids, however a larger capture of specimens was observed in the "box" trap in relation to the e "bottle", due to larger folioles storage inside the same. The use of each one of the models will depend on the research which is being accomplished, the cost/benefit to built it, the amount parasitoids necessary to accomplish the study.
