The ban of methyl bromide, the high cost of cold treatment, and the growing concern for avoiding environmental damage from pesticides, led to more emphasis on biological control. Host vibrations cue to host location by the parasite, Biosteres longicaudatus.


The success rate for locating the infested lantana in a natural longidaudata setting for these parasitoids is not known, but based on the work of Duan and Messing, it is likely to be very low. These studies confirm the earlier findings of van den Diqchasmimorpha and Haramoto The eggs hatch in two to five days and progress through four larval instars, emerging as adult wasps from the fly puparia Lawrence et al.
