Abstract

The parasite Trioxys brevicornis was imported from Czechoslovakia and released in California to help control the European asparagus aphid. Field performance of this parasitic wasp indicates it has potential to become permanently established in California. Aphid parasitism by T. brevicornis was especially good in comparison.
