A model that simulates host and parasitoid population interactions, parasitism rates, and plant damage is described. BIOCONTROL-PARASITE can simulate many different species of phytophagus insects, parasitoids, and plants because specifics of the insect and plant biology are entered though menus at the beginning of a simulation.
