Rear and test host specificity of Asian parasitoids that are candidates for biological control of the soybean aphid.
Rear imported parasitoid species in quarantine. Expose them to a range of aphid species to determine which ones they are capable of attacking under laboratory conditions. Draw inferences about potential host range after introduction against soybean aphid.
