Abstract: Parasitoids are one of the most important groups of natural enemies of insect pests, and have been widely used as biological control agents in the insect pest manegement. They inject some factors such as venom and polydnavirus into their hosts when they lay eggs into hosts to ensure their progeny develop inside or on the hosts by altering host immunity, development and metabolism. In the past thirty years, tremendous works have been done in the field of physiological regulation of host insects by parasitoids worldwide. In this review, we summarize the related progress in China based on published papers.

Key words: parasitoid, parasitoid-associated factor, insect host, physiological regulation, molecular mechanism
