Comparison of Direct and Indirect Sampling Methods for Tarnished Plant Bug (Hemiptera: Miridae) in Flowering Cotton
Abstract A complex of hemipterans, especially the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois) (Hemiptera: Miridae), has become a major target of insecticides in flowering cotton,Expand
Potential exposure of pollinators to neonicotinoid insecticides from the use of insecticide seed treatments in the mid-southern United States.
Concentrations in flowering structures were well below defined levels of concern thought to cause acute mortality in honey bees, and levels in soil collected during early flowering from insecticide seed treatment trials were generally not well correlated with neonicotinoid concentrations in flowers, pollen, or nectar.

Behavior of Bollworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Larvae on Genetically Engineered Cotton
Differences between Bollgard and non-Bollgard plants in the percentage of infested terminals and squares were observed at 48-h after infestation when 1-m rows were infested, and these data will be used to refine scouting protocols for bollworm larvae on Bollgard cotton. Expand
ARTHROPOD MANAGEMENT Laboratory and Field Evaluations of Insecticide Toxicity To Stink Bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
The order of susceptibility of stink bug species and developmental stages to insecticides from least to most susceptible was adult Euschistus spp. Expand
The results indicate that the adult vial test may not be the most efficient test method for indoxacarb and pyridalyl in insecticide susceptibility monitoring programs. Expand
Cotton Aphid (Heteroptera: Aphididae) Susceptibility to Commercial and Experimental Insecticides in the Southern United States
The bioassays suggest that high levels of resistance to thiamethoxam occur in cotton aphid throughout the midsouthern United States, and flonicamid and sulfoxaflor need to be incorporated into a rotation strategy to preserve their efficacy against Cotton aphid. Expand
ARTHROPOD MANAGEMENT Impact of Thrips Infesting Cotton Seedlings on Cotton Yield Distribution and Maturity
Results from these studies and previous studies indicate that environmental conditions might influence cotton response to thrips infestations and this interaction warrants further study. Expand
Early Flower Bud Loss and Mepiquat Chloride Effects on Cotton Yield Distribution
The biological responses produced by early bud loss and MC treatments interacted positively, and plants treated with MC generally improved compensation on lower sympodia without negative effects on upper sympodial productivity. Expand
Tarnished Plant Bug (Hemiptera: Miridae) Thresholds and Sampling Comparisons for Flowering Cotton in the Midsouthern United States
ABSTRACT The tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois) (Hemiptera: Miridae), has become the primary target of foliar insecticides in cotton, Gossypium hirsutum L., throughout theExpand
Allele Frequency of Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ab Corn in Louisiana Populations of Sugarcane Borer (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)
Major Bt resistance allele frequencies in Louisiana sugarcane borer populations seem to be low, and they should support the rare resistance allele requirement of the high dose/refuge strategy for Bt corn. Expand
