Abstract


The effect of starvation on lipid, total sugar and glycogen contents of braconid species, Bracon hebetor Say, 1836 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) was examined under laboratory conditions. Adults of B. hebetor were starved for up to ten days. Lipid concentration in female and male parasitoids declined consistently throughout the starvation period when compared with the other nutrient reserves. In females a mild decline in total sugar levels followed emergence and continued through the fifth days of life. On subsequent days females had more or less a stable level of total sugar with slight oscillations. In males, total sugar concentration decreased at the beginning of starvation and remained constant over starvation period. The glycogen reserves of female and male parasitoids that had been starved for ten days reached a peak in 24 h and then declined slightly during experimental period.
