Suppression of a Caribbean Fruit Fly (Anastrepha suspensa(Loew) Diptera: Tephritidae) Population through Augmented Releases of the ParasitoidDiachasmimorpha longicaudata(Ashmead) (Hymenoptera:…
Augmented releases of D. longicaudatamay be particularly useful in suppressing Caribbean fruit fly populations in areas where more traditional methods such as insecticide-bait sprays and sterile male releases are impractical.
Biological control of the Caribbean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae).
Inundative releases of parasites will augment numbers of natural enemies during periods when wasps are relatively uncommon due to difficulties in host finding, and the lower numbers of flies that may result could be important in creating and maintaining fly-free zones.
Records of Trichospilus diatraeae, an Asian parasite (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) from the Caribbean and Florida
In Trinidad choice tests with material from India, carried out under quarantine, indicated that adults of this gregarious parasite did not discriminate between Diatraea pupae and puparia of the beneficial tachinid flies Lixophaga diatraeae (Townsend) and Paratheresia claripalpis (Wulp) (Bennett 1965).
The effects of locally applied capsaicin on conduction in cutaneous nerves in four mammalian species
Opening the connective tissue sheath of the nerve did not significantly increase the effectiveness of capsaicin, and small reversible effects were seen on the fastest conducting Aαβ component of the compound action potential in the rat, rabbit and guinea‐pig and ferret.

Notes on the Biology of Ischnodemus oblongus and I. fulvipes with Descriptions of the Immature Stages (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae)
- R. Baranowski
- 15 September 1979
The habitat and host-plant relationships of Ischnodemus fulvipes and oblongus are discussed. The immature stages of both species are described and the 5th instar I. oblongus is illustrated.
Long‐Term Reduction in the Number of C‐Fibre Nociceptors Following Capsaicin Treatment of a Cutaneous Nerve in Adult Rats
The reduction in the numbers of nociceptive C‐fibres is likely to be the direct cause of the reduction in pain responses and in neurogenic inflammation that several groups have reported following treatment of adult rats with capsaicin.
The Occurrence of Oxycarenus hyalinipennis (Costa) (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae) in the West Indies and New Lygaeidae Records for the Turks and Caicos Islands of Providenciales and North Caicos
A breeding population of Oxycarenus hyalinipennis (Costa) is reported for the first time from the West Indies and information to distinguish it from other closely related species is given.
Dispersion Indices and Sampling Plans for the Broad Mite (Acari: Tarsonemidae) and the Citrus Rust Mite (Acari: Eriophyidae) on Limes
Taylor's power law and Iwao's patchiness regression were used to analyze spatial distributions of broad mite, Polyphagotarsonemus latus, and citrus rust mite on lime trees during winter, spring, summer, and fall between 1985 and 1987.
Rearing and life history studies onBiosteres (Opius) longicaudatus [Hym.: Braconidae]
Efficient methods were developed for rearingBiosteres (Opius) longicaudatusAshmead, using the Caribbean fruit fly,Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), as the host. Evaluations were made of the influence upon…
