This paper reports on the development of a simple and robust preference meter (developed in-house) to score the host choice behavior of apterous aphids. With this tool, the preferences of two important cereal aphids Sitobion avenae (Fab.) and Metopolophium dirhodum (Walker) were investigated against four different varieties of winter wheat (Triticum(More)
We investigated the influence of the Fusarium mycotoxin deoxynivalenol on the English grain aphid Sitobion avenae (Hemiptera: Aphididae) and its parasitic wasp Aphidius ervi (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) using in vitro laboratory experiments. In this tritrophic interaction, deoxynivalenol caused lethal (declined survival) and sublethal (prolonged nymphal(More)
