Abstract Acanthoscelides obtectus (Say) and Zabrotes subfasciatus (Boheman) are the main bruchid pests of stored beans in widespread regions of Latin America and Africa. Host-plant resistance based on the protein arcelin is effective in reducing damage caused by Z. subfasciatus, but beans containing arcelin remain susceptible to A. obtectus. The compatibility of combining arcelin resistance with biological control by Dinarmus basalis (Rondani) was investigated in climatic chambers. Three arcelin containi [KEYWORDS: Bruchidae; Parasitoid; Plant resistance; Beans; Arcelin]
