Preplant release of Nesidiocoris tenuis and supplementary tactics for control of Tuta absoluta and Bemisa tabaci in greenhouse tomato
TLDR
An early release system developed for Nesidiocoris tenuis Reuter could provide a good control of Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in tomato and Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner and Trichogramma achaeae Nagaraja & Nagarkatti have been shown to be effective against T. absoltta. Expand
Biology and management of Asian citrus psyllid, vector of the huanglongbing pathogens.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of D. citri biology and behavior, pathogen transmission biology, biological control, and chemical control with respect to "Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus" are discussed. Expand
CITRUS FLUSHING PATTERNS, DIAPHORINA CITRI (HEMIPTERA: PSYLLIDAE) POPULATIONS AND PARASITISM BY TAMARIXIA RADIATA (HYMENOPTERA: EULOPHIDAE) IN PUERTO RICO
TLDR
Greatest and most prolonged production of new flush, highest psyllid numbers, and greatest incidence of parasitism occurred at Isabela, the most coastal location and the only one with irrigated citrus, resulting in prolonged availability of new foliage needed to maintain populations of psyllids and consequently its parasitoid. Expand
Predation by Nesidiocoris tenuis on Bemisia tabaci and injury to tomato
Tomato is the most important vegetable crop in Spain. The mirid bug Nesidiocoris tenuis (Reuter) commonly appears in large numbers in protected and open-air tomato crops where little or noExpand
Cultural practices for managing Bemisia tabaci and associated viral diseases
TLDR
Adoption in recent years of some cultural practices to manage whiteflies, such as crop planning that includes host-free periods, and various forms of screened exclusion are seen. Expand
Influence of host plant and prey availability on developmental time and surviorship of Nesidiocoris tenius (Het.: Miridae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that animal prey is a required dietary component for N. tenuis, and also that survival time on a strict plant diet is host plant dependent. Expand
Exclusion techniques reveal significant biotic mortality suffered by Asian citrus psyllid Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) populations in Florida citrus
TLDR
It is suggested that biotic factors play a vital role in regulating populations of D. citri through judicious use of insecticides and releases of new parasitoids are needed for sustainable management of pest and disease. Expand
Field Release in Florida of Diaphorencyrtus aligarhensis (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), an Endoparasitoid of Diaphorina citri (Homoptera: Psyllidae), from Mainland China
TLDR
Adult psyllids were present at all locations throughout the release period although their incidence appeared to decline over the >2 year release period, likely from increased insecticide use to reduce the spread of citrus greening dis ease. Expand
Life history of Eretmocerus mundus, a parasitoid of Bemisia tabaci, on tomato and sweet pepper
TLDR
Eretmocerus mundus is native to the Mediterranean region where it is often observed to enter greenhouses to parasitize B. tabaci on fruiting vegetables and other host crops, indicating the potential of E. mundus to control this pest on solanaceous crops in the greenhouse. Expand
Predatory Mite, Amblyseius swirskii (Acari: Phytoseiidae), for Biological Control of Asian Citrus Psyllid, Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae)
TLDR
A significant negative impact of A. swirskii on D. citri eggs and nymphs as prey for the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskai Athias-Henriot is shown. Expand
