Risk of the introduction of Lobesia botrana in suitable areas for Vitis vinifera
TLDR
The relationship between the environmental preferences of L. botrana and its main host, Vitis vinifera, was determined, making it possible to choose locations to focus on combatting the pest and implementing preventive actions. Expand
Insecticidal activity of essential oils in controlling fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda
TLDR
EOs of C. citriodora and L. microphylla are promising for controlling S. frugiperda, with emphasis on the volatile effect ofC. Expand
Effects of paracress (Acmella oleracea) extracts on the aphids Myzus persicae and Lipaphis erysimi and two natural enemies
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate the potential of the ethanol extract of A. oleracea as a botanical insecticide in the management of aphids in brassicas. Expand
Natural factors regulating mustard aphid dynamics in cabbage.
TLDR
The nymphal stage, especially first instar nymphs, was critical for L. erysimi mortality and the key mortality factors were, in descending order of importance, physiological disturbances and predation by Syrphidae, Coccinellidae and Solenopsis ants. Expand
Life table parameters of the red palm mite Raoiella indica (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) at various temperatures and for sexual and asexual reproduction
TLDR
The life parameters estimated in this study can be used for modelling and predicting the population growth of R. indica in the field and consequently for improving their management strategies. Expand
Coccinellidae, Syrphidae and Aphidoletes are key mortality factors for Myzus persicae in tropical regions: A case study on cabbage crops
TLDR
The natural mortality of M. persicae caused by abiotic and biotic factors assessed by cohort life tables in cabbage crops was reported, and the key mortality factor was predation by Coccinellidae larvae. Expand
Contributions of climate, plant phenology and natural enemies to the seasonal variation of aphids on cabbage
TLDR
Investigation of cabbage phenology, climatic factors and natural enemies populations on the dynamics of these organisms, and the factors regulating their predators’ occurrence, provides relevant insights into the factors that regulate the aphids in cabbage and for the decision‐making process of control of these severe pests. Expand
Predation is the key mortality factor for Brevicoryne brassicae in cabbage crops
TLDR
This study evaluated the natural mortality caused by abiotic and biotic factors in B. brassicae, using ecological life tables in cabbage crops to suggest measures seeking to preserve natural enemies, especially predators, should be adopted to control B. Brassicae inabbage crops. Expand
Mapping of the Steneotarsonemus spinki invasion risk in suitable areas for rice (Oryza sativa) cultivation using MaxEnt
TLDR
The model indicates that there are climatic conditions for the establishment of S. spinki in important rice-producing regions, such as western and central Africa, Oceania, Asia, and North, Central, and South America, and the results are useful for the efficient establishment of phytosanitary measures to prevent the dispersal.
