PEST STATUS OF THE BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG, HALyOMORPHA HALyS IN THE USA
TLDR
The current pest status and strategies being developed to manage brown marmorated stink bug in the USA are summarized.
Biology, Ecology, and Management of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Pesticide applications, including broad-spectrum insecticides, have increased in response to H. halys infestations, potentially negatively influencing populations of beneficial arthropods and increasing secondary pest outbreaks.
Behavioral and electrophysiological responses of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, to induced volatiles of Manchurian ash, Fraxinus mandshurica
TLDR
Investigating volatile emissions of Manchurian ash seedlings in response to feeding by the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, and to exogenous application of methyl jasmonate suggests that females may use induced volatiles in long-range host finding, while their role for males is unclear.
Molecular, Biochemical, and Organismal Analyses of Tomato Plants Simultaneously Attacked by Herbivores from Two Feeding Guilds
TLDR
These interactions across different levels of biological organization, i.e., molecular, biochemical, and organismal, with tomato plants damaged by one 3rd-instar beet armyworm caterpillar, produced consistent results when considering each herbivore separately but not when considering them together.
Tracing the history of plant traits under domestication in cranberries: potential consequences on anti-herbivore defences.
TLDR
The results suggest that compromised chemical defences in high-yielding cranberry varieties may lead to greater herbivore damage which, in turn, may require more intensive pesticide control measures.
Herbivore-Induced Volatiles in the Perennial Shrub, Vaccinium corymbosum, and Their Role in Inter-branch Signaling
TLDR
Exposure to HIPVs triggered systemic induction of direct defenses against gypsy moth and primed volatile emissions, which can be an indirect defense in blueberry plants, which appear to rely on HIPVs as external signals for inter-branch communication.
Behaviors of adult Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
A 2-year study to better understand searching and mating behaviors of adult Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire found that beetles most likely rely on visual cues during mate finding, although host-plant volatiles and/or pheromones might also be involved.
