Morphology and Distribution of the Sense Organs on the Antennae of Copitarsia consueta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
Five types of sensilla were found on the antennae of adult Copitarsia consueta (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) by scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy, suggesting that the sensillum may contain the receptor sites for the female sex pheromone.
Bollgard Cotton and Resistance of Tobacco Budworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to Conventional Insecticides in Southern Tamaulipas, Mexico
TLDR
A clear trend toward reversal of resistance to type II pyrethroids can be understood, in part, with respect to the high adoption rate of transgenic cotton in the region, which has considerably curbed the use of synthetic insecticides, with the attending loss of selection pressure on this pest.
Scientific Note: Calling Behavior of the Moth Copitarsia Consueta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of age, mating, and photoperiod on the calling behavior of C. consueta and to study the mating behavior and chemical identification of the female sex pheromone.
Parasitoid diversity and impact on populations of the diamondback moth Plutella xylostella (L.) on Brassica crops in central México
TLDR
The most abundant and frequently occurring species was D. collaris, a hyperparasitoid of D. insulare, it occurred in both localities during all three cropping seasons, and represents the first record of this species in North America.
VEGETATION-DERIVED CUES FOR THE SELECTION OF OVIPOSITION SUBSTRATES BY ANOPHELES ALBIMANUS UNDER LABORATORY CONDITIONS
TLDR
The results suggest that middle-range volatiles from plants may function as chemical cues for the female's oviposition response in this mosquito species.
PATHOGENICITY OF BEAUVERIA BASSIANA (DEUTEROMYCOTA: HYPHOMYCETES) AGAINST THE CACTUS WEEVIL, METAMASIUS SPINOLAE (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE) UNDER LABORATORY CONDITIONS
TLDR
Results indicate for the first time the possible use of B. bassiana as biocontrol agent against this insect pest M. spinolae, an important pest of cactus plants.
Varroa destructor (Acari: Varroidae) infestation in queen, worker, and drone brood of Apis mellifera (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that V. destructor can infest queen, worker, and drone brood cells, but Drone brood cells are preferred; in addition, queen brood cells do not provide an optimal environment for reproduction because it causes a delay in mite oviposition and (or) progeny development.
Aggregation Pheromone of Metamasius spinolae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): Chemical Analysis and Field Test
TLDR
Preliminary field experiments showed that significantly more adult cactus weevils were caught in traps baited with the major single compound three or the 2 + 3 binary combination than in unbaited control traps, however, highest trap efficacy occurred with the 1 + 2 binary combination and a blend of all three synthetic compounds plus prickly pear.
