Female parasitoid fecundity was negatively correlated to their density due to mutual interference. Host selection experiments showed that, of nine species tested, HMB was the only suitable mealybug species for A.

It attacks all host stages, preferring the pre-ovipositional adult females, in which 2 or more eggs may be deposited.
