Bioactivity of compounds from Acmella oleracea against Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and selectivity to two non-target species.
BACKGROUND Tropical plants are recognised sources of bioactive compounds that can be used for pest control. The objective of this study was to evaluate the biological activity of compounds present inExpand
Comparison of two populations of the pantropical predator Amblyseius largoensis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) for biological control of Raoiella indica (Acari: Tenuipalpidae)
The red palm mite, Raoiella indica Hirst (Acari: Tenuipalpidae), was recently introduced in the Americas. It spread quickly throughout coconut palm growing areas, expanding considerably its hostExpand
Reproductive compatibility and genetic and morphometric variability among populations of the predatory mite, Amblyseius largoensis (Acari: Phytoseiidae), from Indian Ocean Islands and the Americas.
The red palm mite (RPM), Raoiella indica Hirst (Acari: Tenuipalpidae), is an invasive phytophagous mite that was recently introduced into The Americas. The predatory mite Amblyseius largoensis MumaExpand
Timeline and geographical distribution of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae: Heliothinae) in Brazil
This study presents registers of Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) occurrence to assess its spatial and temporal distribution in Brazil. We used data from collections, especially from the SouthernExpand
Potential geographical distribution of the red palm mite in South America
Among pests that have recently been introduced into the Americas, the red palm mite, Raoiella indica Hirst (Prostigmata: Tenuipalpidae), is the most invasive. This mite has spread rapidly to severalExpand
Correlation between numbers captured and infestation levels of the Coffee Berry-borer, Hypothenemus hampei: A preliminary basis for an action threshold using baited traps
Sampling techniques currently used to determine control measures for the Coffee Berry-borer (CBB) are time-consuming and allow the grower only a small window of opportunity to select other options.Expand
First Report of Raoiella indica (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) in Southeastern Brazil
Summary The red palm mite, Raoiella indica Hirst (Acari: Tenuipalpidae), was found for the first time in the urban area of Dracena, state of São Paulo, southeastern Brazil, in May 2015, on CocosExpand
Toxicity of acaricides to Raoiella indica and their selectivity for its predator, Amblyseius largoensis (Acari: Tenuipalpidae: Phytoseiidae)
Raoiella indica Hirst (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) is considered a pest of coconut palm in Asia and the Middle East. This mite was recently introduced in the Americas, where it spread to several countriesExpand
Biology of the leaf roller Salbia lotanalis and its impact on the invasive tree Miconia calvescens
Miconia calvescens (Melastomataceae) is an invasive alien tree in native forests on some Pacific islands and a potentially invasive species in Australia. Searches for potential classical biocontrolExpand
