Description: After being retained in cold storage at -10°C over a 24-month period, some Clostera inclusa (Hubner) eggs were still able to be successfully parasitized by Ooencyrtus ennomophagus Yoshimoto, an egg parasite. An equation was developed for predicting parasite yield over time from cold-stored eggs. Predicted parasitism was 25 percent or better for up to 8 months of storage, then dropped to below 16 percent for eggs stored 12 months, 8 percent after 18 months, declining to less than 1 percent after 24 months of storage.

Keywords: Parasite rearing, biological control, Populus deltoides, Salix nigra
