The sublethal effects of pesticides on beneficial arthropods.
The different types of sublethal effects on beneficial arthropods, focusing mainly on honey bees and natural enemies, are characterized, and the methods used in these studies are described.

The keys to sustainable management of this pest include understanding linkages between the soybean aphid and other introduced and native species in a landscape context along with continued development of aphid-resistant varieties.
Invasion biology of spotted wing Drosophila (Drosophila suzukii): a global perspective and future priorities
It is concluded that particularly fruitful areas of research should include fundamental studies of its overwintering, host-use, and dispersal capabilities; as well as applied studies of alternative, cost-effective management techniques to complement insecticide use within the integrated pest management framework.
The invasive South American tomato pinworm, Tuta absoluta, continues to spread in Afro-Eurasia and beyond: the new threat to tomato world production
The available information on the current distribution of T. absoluta in the world is updated and the threat represented by the rapid spread is described, how this pest is going to change world tomato production is described.

Among the recovered indigenous natural enemies, only few parasitoid species, namely, some eulophid and braconid wasps, and especially mirid predators, have promising potential to be included in effective and environmentally friendly management strategies for the pest in the newly invaded areas.
