<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>A critical stage in the success of a parasitoid is the ability to locate a host within its habitat. It is hypothesized that a series of olfactory cues may be involved in altering the parasitoid's movement patterns at this stage of foraging. This paper focuses specifically on host habitat location and host location and the olfactory stimuli necessary to mediate the transition between these stages. Firstly, we confirm the ability of the parasitoid <jats:italic>Aphidius colemani</jats:italic> to detect the aphid sex pheromone at an electrophysiological level. Following this we investigate the effect of the sex pheromone comp...
