Is the Naturally Derived Insecticide Spinosad® Compatible with Insect Natural Enemies?
For conservation of predator populations, spinosad represents one of the most judicious insecticides available but the use of this product should be evaluated carefully in situations where conservation of parasitoid populations is of prime concern. Expand
Results of the seventh joint pesticide testing programme carried out by the IOBC/WPRS-Working Group ‘Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms’
The side effect of 10 insecticides, 5 fungicides and 5 herbicides on 24 different species of beneficial organisms was tested by members of the Working Group ‘Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms’ ofExpand
The non-target impact of spinosyns on beneficial arthropods.
A thorough review of possible risks of spinosad and novel spinosyns (such as spinetoram) to beneficial arthropods (notably natural enemies and pollinators) is provided, and the acute lethal effect and multiple sublethal effects have been identified in almost all arthropod groups studied. Expand
Toxicity and Absorption of Azadirachtin, Diflubenzuron, Pyriproxyfen, and Tebufenozide after Topical Application in Predatory Larvae of Chrysoperla carnea (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
The data suggest that the use of azadirachtin and diflubenzuron in combination with C. carnea in integrated pest management (IPM) programs should be carefully evaluated. Expand
Toxicity of diflubenzuron and pyriproxyfen to the predatory bug Podisus maculiventris
Investigation of the susceptibility of the predatory pentatomid Podisus maculiventris to the insect growth regulators (IGRs) diflubenzuron and pyriproxyfen suggested that the use of these IGRs in the integrated management of insect pests should be evaluated with caution. Expand
Toxicity and sublethal effects of six insecticides to last instar larvae and adults of the biocontrol agents Chrysoperla carnea (Stephens) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) and Adalia bipunctata (L.)
The compounds flonicamid, flubendiamide, metaflumizone and spirotetramat might be incorporated into IPM programs in combination with these natural enemies for the control of particular greenhouse pests. Expand
Effects of three modern insecticides, pyriproxyfen, spinosad and tebufenozide, on survival and reproduction of Chrysoperla carnea adults
Summary Three novel insecticides, pyriproxyfen, spinosad and tebufenozide, were evaluated for their effect on survival and reproduction of Chrysoperla carnea adults using two methods of exposure:Expand
Laboratory evaluation of the novel naturally derived compound spinosad against Ceratitis capitata
Spinosad was more effective than fenthion in suppressing larval development when neonate larvae were reared on treated diet supplemented with a range of concentrations from 0.02 to 0.83 mg kg -1 diet. Expand
Toxicity and kinetics of methoxyfenozide in greenhouse-selected Spodoptera exigua (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).
It was striking that the rate of excretion was about twice as high in the greenhouse-selected strain of the beet armyworm Spodoptera exigua, resulting in a more rapid clearance of insecticide amounts from the insect body. Expand
