The Braconid and Ichneumonid Parasitoid Wasps: Biology, Systematics, Evolution and Ecology

The Ichneumonoidea is an unlimited and significant superfamily of parasitic wasps, with a few 60,000 defined species and expected numbers some distance better, specially for small-bodied tropical taxa. The superfamily contains cosmopolitan households - Braconidae and Ichneumonoidea - that experience mostly attracted separate teams of researchers, and this, to a substantial quantity, has intended that figuring out in their adaptive positive aspects has usually been thought of in isolation.

We distinguish between pheromones, which mediate interactions between organisms of the same species, and allelochemicals, which mediate interactions between two individuals that belong to different species (Dicke and Sabelis 1988). In most cases of pest control, pheromones are used due to their high species specificity. Sex pheromones are both used for monitoring of pest insects and for disturbing mating behavior (Gross 2013; Harari 2016, Chap. 6). Aggregation pheromones can be used for mass trapping, but this type of pheromone occurs only in a few known species (Gross 2013).

Urbanization jeopardizes bees and pollination services by causing habitat fragmentation (McFrederick and LeBuhn 2006; Baldock et al. 2015). Spatial isolation makes wild bee community restoration particularly difficult in urban systems, and restoration efforts must preserve habitat and increase connectivity of urban organic farms with natural land. However, particular bee groups have been shown to prosper in urban farms (Matteson and Langellotto 2010). Urban gardens may be one habitat type that conserves bees and pollination services (Matteson and Langellotto 2010).

Augmenting habitat for natural enemies and native bees by diversifying floral resources along roadsides may be one of the most effective strategies for conservation and for connecting organic farms with natural land. H. W. Crowder groups and increase ecosystem services provided to farms (Hopwood 2010). In the USA alone, there are over four million hectares of publically owned land along the side of roads, including urban streets and rural highways (Forman et al. 2003). A small body of research indicates that spatial connectivity through powerline easements may also improve spatial connectivity of wild bees and resources (Russell et al.
