Selectivity of pesticides used in cucurbits to Trichogramma atopovirilia Oatman & Platner (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)The cucurbit borers Diaphania spp. are major cucurbit pests, causing losses of up to 100% in production. Biological control with the parasitoid Trichogramma is an alternative for reducing the use of insecticides.
