Suppression of a Caribbean Fruit Fly (Anastrepha suspensa(Loew) Diptera: Tephritidae) Population through Augmented Releases of the ParasitoidDiachasmimorpha longicaudata(Ashmead) (Hymenoptera:
Augmented releases of D. longicaudatamay be particularly useful in suppressing Caribbean fruit fly populations in areas where more traditional methods such as insecticide-bait sprays and sterile male releases are impractical.
Use of DNA Barcodes to Identify Invasive Armyworm Spodoptera Species in Florida
It is indicated that DNA barcoding has the potential to be an efficient and accurate supplement to morphological methods for the identification of invasive Spodoptera pests in North America.
A Major Pest of Cotton, Oxycarenus hyalinipennis (Heteroptera: Oxycarenidae) in the Bahamas
The objectives of this study were to collect observational data on O. hyalinipennis, and determine the infestation levels of this pest on cotton in Great Inagua, a known pest of cotton worldwide.
Efficacies of Four Pheromone-Baited Traps in Capturing Male Helicoverpa (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Moths in Northern Florida
The sticky traps captured the highest number of non-target insects, most being ants, flies, and beetles, and the average corn earworm per trap vs. cost ratio for bucket traps was higher than the other traps, suggesting that more moths per dollar would be captured using these traps.
Efficiency of Trapping Systems for Detecting Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
Survey programs, particularly large-scale ones, should consider the application of alternative trapping systems or new adhesives available in order to facilitate the visual prescreening of nontarget moths.

Monitoring for Exotic Spodoptera Species (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Florida
The amount of labor and level of technical knowledge needed for scientists involved in finding exotic Spodoptera species were exposed in 2 Florida locations.
Combining Tpi and CO1 Genetic Markers to Discriminate Invasive Helicoverpa armigera From Local Helicoverpa zea (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Populations in the Southeastern United States
The results extend earlier studies establishing CO1 as marker for discriminating the Helicoverpa species complex and introduce a new sex-linked genomic marker to provide a more accurate and sensitive method than existing techniques for identifying hybridization between H. zea and H. armigera.
Assessing the Usefulness of DNA Barcoding to Identify Oxycarenus hyalinipennis (Hemiptera: Oxycarenidae) in Florida, a Potentially Invasive Pest of Cotton
The potential of DNA barcoding to facilitate the identification of the cotton seed bug in field-collected specimens is assessed.
