Deciphering the Routes of invasion of Drosophila suzukii by Means of ABC Random Forest
Abstract Deciphering invasion routes from molecular data is crucial to understanding biological invasions, including identifying bottlenecks in population size and admixture among distinctExpand
Identification of a Sex Attractant Pheromone for Male Winterform Pear Psylla, Cacopsylla pyricola
Pear psylla, Cacopsylla pyricola (Förster) (Hemiptera: Psyllidae), a major economic pest of pears, uses a female-produced sex attractant pheromone. We compared the chemical profiles obtained fromExpand
Relationship between body size and homing ability in the genus Osmia (Hymenoptera; Megachilidae)
Abstract 1. The maximum homing ability of female bees, that is, their capacity to return to the nest after being displaced a certain distance, is considered to be an estimate of their maximumExpand
Multistate Comparison of Attractants for Monitoring Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in Blueberries and Caneberries
ABSTRACT Drosophila suzukii Matsumara, also referred to as the spotted wing drosophila, has recently expanded its global range with significant consequences for its primary host crops: blueberries,Expand
Earlier activity of Drosophila suzukii in high woodland landscapes but relative abundance is unaffected
Natural habitats can affect the population dynamics of mobile insects, and the spatial and temporal effects on agricultural pest species may be especially relevant for tailoring management strategiesExpand
Susceptibility of cold hardy grapes to Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae), known commonly as spotted wing drosophila, is a vinegar fly originating from South‐East Asia and a major pest to many soft‐skinned fruits. Due to theExpand
Semiochemical and Vibrational Cues and Signals Mediating Mate Finding and Courtship in Psylloidea (Hemiptera): A Synthesis
Mate finding and courtship involve complex interactions that require close coordination between individuals of the opposite gender. Well-organized signalling systems, sometimes involving aExpand
Odorants of the Flowers of Butterfly Bush, Buddleja Davidii, as Possible Attractants of Pest Species of Moths
Abstract Flowers of the butterfly bush, Buddleja davidii Franch., are visited by butterflies as well as other insects. Night captures revealed also that moths visit butterfly bush flowers. MothsExpand
Field Attraction of Codling Moths (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) to Apple and Pear Fruit, and Quantitation of Kairomones from Attractive Fruit
Abstract Male and female codling moths, Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) responded to fruit-baited traps in orchards. Numbers of codling moths trapped with immature uninfested applesExpand
Attraction of male winterform pear psylla to female‐produced volatiles and to female extracts and evidence of male–male repellency
Pear psylla, Cacopsylla pyricola (Förster) (Homoptera: Psyllidae), is a major pest of commercial pears in North America and Europe. Olfactometer trials have shown that males of both the summer andExpand
