Potensi Tanaman Nerium Oleander Untuk Tindakan Augmentasi Stephanidae (Hymenoptera) Sebagai Musuh Alami Lepidoptera
The number of pest natural enemies can be optimized by providing some alternative plants as their microhabitat. The objective of this research was to know potential of Nerium oleander as an alternative plant for Stephanidae, a natural enemy of Lepidoptera. N. oleander at Veteran Street, Ijen Street, Sawojajar Street, and Griyasanta Street was counted directly as well as Lepidopteran pupae in the plant. The pupae were then put into glass boxes. The plant potential was known from number of adult Stephanidae emerged from Lepidopteran larvae. The result showed that N. oleander of Veteran Street, of Ijen Street, of Sawojajar Street, and of Griyasanta could produce 715, 624, 91, 39 adult Stephanidae, respectively.
