Habrobracon hebetor release in Niger

Habrobracon hebetor release in Niger

In Niger, farmers are provided gunny sacks with grains, rice moth (Corcyra cephalonica) larvae, and two pairs of the parasitoid wasp Habrobracon hebetor in them. This low-cost process enables farmers to release the parasitoids easily and economically. A bucket is usually used to avoid the sack getting drenched during the rainy season.
