My research on FAW based in Zambia and has interdisciplinary aspects. I am looking at biocontrol from a conservative and augmentative angle of local natural enemies as well as co-designing a strategy with farmers and local stakeholders.

This is my question as well! Which factitious host is the best for rearing egg parasitoids in Africa/Asia? As FAW is time consuming for rearing, it is not the best host for rearing Trichogramma or Telenomus in rearing facilities.

To add to the above. If new egg masses are not available at the same time as the egg parasitoids, it is possible to keep them alive for a few days with a honey solution absorbed in cotton or on filter paper. Mix a bit of honey with water and dip cotton in the solution so that the parasitoids don't drown. Only a small amount is necessary for Trichogramma. You will be able to keep them alive until you get egg masses from the rearing. Make sure to change the honey every 2 days and keep the vial aerated.
