A strain of egg parasitoid, Trichogramma chilonis was developed for tolerance to insecticides and high temperature. The LC50 values were 13-folds higher for endosulfan, 233-folds for monocrotophos and 4- folds for fenvalerate. In high temperature, the developed strain could parasitise up to 53.3 eggs as compared to 6.7% by susceptible strain. Exact identification of developed strain was done using primers, viz., OPA-4,OPC-12 and OPL-4. Increased GST activity was recorded in developed strain, whereas decrease in carboxylestrase and similar acetylcholine activity to susceptible strain. Genetical studies with tolerant strain of T. chilonis revealed that female parent provide incomplete…
