Potential of Mass Trapping for Long-Term Pest Management and Eradication of Invasive Species
It is concluded that mass trapping has good potential to suppress or eradicate low-density, isolated pest populations; however, its full potential in pest management has not been adequately realized and therefore encourages further research and development of this technology. Expand
Invasion biology, ecology, and management of the light brown apple moth (Tortricidae).
The importance of the light brown apple moth has prompted development of classical biological control programs together with a wide variety of other management interventions that can be used in integrated pest management or integrated pest eradication. Expand
Eradication of invasive forest insects: concepts, methods, costs and benefits
Although progress has been made in the development, utilisation and integration of eradication tools, some insects are still not amenable to treatment, and there is a need for new methods shown to have a minimal effect on other organisms, including human beings. Expand
Potential of “Lure and Kill” in Long-Term Pest Management and Eradication of Invasive Species
It is concluded that lure and kill can be highly effective in controlling small, low-density, isolated populations, and thus it has the potential to add value to long-term pest management. Expand
Determinants of successful arthropod eradication programs
A global database developed to facilitate an analysis of arthropod eradication programs and determine the factors that influence eradication success and failure believes GERDA, as an online database, provides an objective repository of information that will play an invaluable role when future eradication efforts are considered. Expand
Eradication of tephritid fruit fly pest populations: outcomes and prospects.
Because the likelihood of eradication declines with an increase in the area infested, it pays to invest in effective surveillance networks that allow early detection and delimitation while invading populations are small, thereby greatly favouring eradication success. Expand
Improving border biosecurity: potential economic benefits to New Zealand
The number of alien species becoming established in New Zealand is steadily increasing. Assuming no improvements to New Zealand s border biosecurity systems, it is conservatively estimated thatExpand
Positive Interaction of a Feeding Attractant and a Host Kairomone for Trapping the Codling Moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
The combination of odorants provides a stronger lure for female codling moths than exists with pear ester alone and increases the potential for using lures in managing this pest of pome fruits and walnuts. Expand
Pheromone Disruption of Argentine Ant Trail Integrity
Results show that trail pheromone disruption of Argentine ants is possible, but a much more durable formulation is needed before nest-level impacts can be expected. Expand
Twenty years of Argentine ants in New Zealand: past research and future priorities for applied management
The Argentine ant, Linepithema humile (Mayr), is a highly invasive global pest. It has been just over twenty years since Argentine ants were fi rst discovered in New Zealand. Through the result ofExpand
