DescriptionFourth-instar larch casebearer, Coleophora laricella (Hübner), was significantly less susceptible to acephate and malathion than were adults of its parasites. Chrysocharis larcinellae(Ratz.) and Dicladocerus nearcticus Yoshimoto (P0.01) than the hosts to diflubenzuron. Malathion was equally toxic to both parasite species. D.nearcticus appeared to be the more tolerant of the parasites to both acephate and diflubenzuron.
