The collateral effects of a biorational compound from Nicotiana gossei Domain on the parasitoid Encarsia formosa Gahan were determined in laboratory and greenhouse tests and compared with the effects of spraying with M-Pede or Margosan-O. Fewer parasitized whitef1y pupae were killed by spraying with N. gossei extract or Margosan-O than spraying with M-Pede. More E. formosa wasps were killed by spraying with M-Pede than by spraying with N. gossei extract or Margosan-O and when confined to treated leaf surfaces 1 h after spraying. At 1.5 and 3 h after spraying, both N. gossei extract and M-Pede killed more wasps than when spraying with Margosan-O. When wasps were released into greenhouses 3 h after spraying, fewer whiteflies were parasitized on tomato leaflets treated with biorationals than on leaflets treated with water. However, at 24 h after spraying tomato leaflets, parasitization was significantly higher on those treated with N. gossei extract and Margosan-O. Fewer wasps were found on leaflets treated with M-Pede. A1thoughthe 3 biorational insecticides caused mortality of E. formosa, the N. gossei extract was less detrimental than M-Pede to the viability of E. Formosa.. N. gossei extract could be used successfully with E. formosa in integrated pest management programs
