Comparative Pollination Effectiveness Among Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) on Lowbush Blueberry (Ericaceae: Vaccinium angustifolium)
TLDR
Equivalencies derived from floral visitation rates and pollination percentages show that the most effective pollen-harvesters, Bombus spp.
DIVERSITY AND ABUNDANCE OF NATIVE BEE POLLINATORS ON BERRY CROPS AND NATURAL VEGETATION IN THE LOWER FRASER VALLEY, BRITISH COLUMBIA
TLDR
Native bees were not abundant enough to ensure adequate pollination of berry crops, and therefore, the use of managed honey bees is advisable.
Characterization of early floral damage by cranberry tipworm ( Dasineura oxycoccana Johnson) as a precursor to reduced fruit set in rabbiteye blueberry ( Vaccinium ashei Reade)
The cranberry tipworm, Dasineura oxycoccana, is an important insect pest of rabbiteye blueberries, Vaccinium ashei, in the southeastern United States, with annual losses from infestation and damage
The foraging behaviour of honey bees (Apis mellifera L) and bumble bees (Bombus spp) on cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon Ait)
Le comportement de butinage des abeilles domestiques et des bourdons a ete etudie sur des cultures de canneberges dans le sud-est du Massachusetts. Les bourdons abordent les fleurs de telle facon
Kaolin Affects Blueberry Maggot Behavior on Fruit
TLDR
Oviposition trials with field-treated fruit showed that blueberries treated with Surround had fewer oviposition scars than the control, and this was more pronounced with weekly applications of Surround.
Laboratory studies of insecticide efficacy and resistance in Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera: Drosophilidae) populations from British Columbia, Canada.
TLDR
The low level of malathion resistance observed in the selected SWD populations and a field-collected population is useful information in the development of insecticide resistance management programmes.
Trapping Phyllophaga spp. (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae) in the United States and Canada using sex attractants
TLDR
A field trapping study conducted, deploying different blends of the methyl esters of two amino acids, L-valine and L-isoleucine, in the United States and Canada, finding that in most species intraspecific male response to the pheromone blends was stable between years and over geography.
