Tamarixia aguacatensis Yefremova, sp. n. (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae: Tetrastichinae) is described from Mexico as a parasitoid of the avocado psyllid, Trioza aguacate Hollis & Martin (Hemiptera: Triozidae). Trioza aguacate is a serious pest of avocado, Persea americana Miller. A key to the species of Tamarixia Mercet in Mexico is given.
The potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli Sulcer (Hemiptera: Psyllidae), and the sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci Gennadius (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), are major pests in tomato in the USA, Mexico, and Central America. Earlier research revealed that the mirid bug Dicyphus hesperus Athias-Henriot (Heteroptera: Miridae) has favorable rates of development(More)
Bactericera cockerelli (Sulc) (Hemiptera: Triozidae) is one of the most economically important pests of potato, tomato, and peppers in Central America, Mexico, the United States, and New Zealand. Its control is based on the use of insecticides; however, recently, the potential of the eulophid parasitoid Tamarixia triozae (Burks) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)(More)
Tamarixia triozae (Burks) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) is an important parasitoid of the potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli Sulc (Hemiptera: Triozidae). We quantified the biology and life table parameters of T. triozae parasitizing B. cockerelli nymphs under laboratory conditions (26 ± 2 °C, 60 ± 10 % RH and 14:10 [L:D] h). Parasitoid developmental times(More)
Hyperaspis trifurcata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is a native predator of the wild cochineal scale, Dactylopius opuntiae (Hemiptera: Dactylopiidae) in North America. Here we have determined its life cycle and voracity when reared on first instar nymphs of D. opuntiae and estimated its population parameters using five diets based on different developmental(More)
