Cabbage looper is attacked by numerous natural enemies, and the effectiveness of each seems to vary spatially, temporally, and with crop environment. Most studies noted the effectiveness of wasp and tachinid parasitoids, and a nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV). Predation has not been well-studied except in cotton. Despite the abundance of parasitoids, however, the authors concluded that T. ni NPV was the key factor affecting populations. In Ontario, Harcourt (a) indicated that C. truncatellum was the most important parasitoid. No data were provided, but cabbage looper populations were said to be “frequently destroyed” by NPV.
