Abstract Of 8 insecticides tested (DDT, endosulfan, dimethoate, azinphos‐ethyl, metamidophos, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, permethrin) the pyrethroids fenvalerate and permethrin were the least selectively toxic to 2 parasites, O. lepidus and C. desantisi, of P. operculella. All the insecticides were more toxic to the parasites than to their host. The results indicate that P. operculella is again susceptible to DDT. Copyright
