The colonization preference and population trends of larval fig psylla, Homotoma ficus L. (Hemiptera: Homotomidae)
Although the population trends of Homotoma ficus larvae were affected by temperature and rainfall, there was only significant relationship between larval abundance and temperature and significant linear relationship was found between fig phenology and cumulative larval counts. Expand
Determination of the species of Curculionoidea superfamily on alfalfa fields (Medicago sativa L.) and their distribution in Bursa Province of Turkey.
In this study, among determined species, Hypera postica, Apion pisi, Sitona macularius (crinitus), Sitona hispidulus (Fabricius 1777) and Sitona humeralis Stephens 1831 were recorded as important pests and widespread. Expand
Investigations on the Biology and Ecology of the Apollo Butterfly, Parnassius apollo (L.)(Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) in Uludağ ,Bursa, Turkey
In conclusion, P.apollo overwinters in the egg as a diapausing larva and the primary nectar sources for adults were Acantholimon ulicinum, Carduus olympicus and Daphne oleoides. Expand
A comparative evaluation of the susceptibility to insecticides and detoxifying enzyme activities in Stethorus gilvifrons (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) and Panonychus ulmi (Acarina: Tetranychidae)
Enhanced detoxification by increased activity of CarE is largely responsible for the observed tolerance to bifenthrin in S. gilvifrons populations, demonstrating that the ladybird species tend to develop resistance to insecticides in the field. Expand
Sampling and development of economic injury levels for Anthonomus rubi Herbst adults
A significant linear decrease was observed in strawberry yields as densities of overwintered-generation adults increased, and a strong relationship between overwintering and new-generation adult densities was revealed. Expand
Resistance to chlorpyrifos and lambda-cyhalothrin along with detoxifying enzyme activities in field-collected female populations of European red mite
A decreased efficacy of chlorpyrifos and lambda-cyhalothrin in field populations of P. ulmi in Turkey is document, possibly linked to altered activities of esterases and GST. Expand
Lycaenid butterflies (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) of northwestern Turkey with notes on their ecology and current status
Between 1995 and 2006, a total of 3280 lycaenid adults belonging to 47 species were collected in order to study their distribution and current status in Bursa, northwestern Turkey. Of these, TomaresExpand
The deposition and retention of a microencapsulated oriental fruit moth pheromone applied as an ultra-low volume spray in the canopy of three peach cultivars.
Microencapsulated oriental fruit moth pheromone (Checkmate OFM-F) was applied using airblast sprayers at a rate of 15 g a.i./ha either in 635 or 40 litres of water/ha for high-volume and ultra-lowExpand
