Demography of greenbug, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) (Hemiptera: Aphididae) on six barley cultivars
The statistical analysis of jackknife did not show a significant influence of the tested barley varieties for the mean generation time and a similar procedure of difference for λ and r m was estimated.
Suitability of Pollen from Different Plant Species as Alternative Food Sources for Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) in Comparison with a Natural Prey
Pistachio and apricot pollen appear to have the highest nutritional value and feeding on cedar pollen caused the lowest fecundity, in contrast to T. urticae and pistachio pollen, which resulted in the highest intrinsic and finite rates of increase.
Toxicity of three insecticides and tobacco extract against the fungus gnat, Lycoriella auripila and the economic injury level of the gnat on button mushroom
For the first time clear EILs are introduced to the button mushroom growers for treatment of L. auripila, the most effective insecticide against L.auripila on varieties 737 and A15 of button mushroom.
Toxicity and Repellency Effects of Three Plant Essential Oils Against Two-spotted Spider Mite, Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae)
To introduce ecologically safe acaricide, effects of essential oils derived from Cuminum cyminum (Cumin), Syzygium aromaticum (Clove), and Mentha spicata (Spearmint) were determined on Tetranychus
Mite Fauna Associated with Button Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) in Karaj Region, Iran
Twelve species are recorded for the first time from mushrooms in Karaj region of Iran that are new for the Iranian acaro-fauna that are indicated by asterisk.
Effect of five barley varieties on life table parameters of Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) (Homoptera: Aphididae).
Results revealed that the greenbug reared on Reyhan variety had the highest rmvalues when compared to other cultivars, and the poor performance of aphids on Kavir and Afzal was attributed to their lower and values, also longer DT, Tc periods.
Sublethal effects of fenazaquin on life table parameters of the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
Fenazaquin is not a compatible acaricide with A. swirskii and should not be used with this predatory mite in integrated management of T. urticae.
Sublethal effects of diflovidazin on life table parameters of two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae)
It is demonstrated that diflovidazin could be incorporated in integrated pest management programmes of T. urticae by significant reduction in female’s duration of maturation, oviposition period, and total fecundity by increasing examined dose.
Assessment of sublethal effects of spirodiclofen on biological performance of the predatory mite, Amblyseius swirskii
It is suggested that sublethal concentrations of spirodiclofen may not affect the population parameters of offspring from treated A. swirskii.
