[Quality of different aphids as hosts of the parasitoid Lysiphlebus testaceipes (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae, Aphidiinae)].
L. testaceipes showed preference for aphids from tribe Aphidini and these hosts presented better quality to the parasitoid when compared to Macrosiphini, and Interactions among size, preference and quality between the aphidini were found. Expand
Influence of photoperiod on Orius thyestes Herring (Hemiptera: Anthocoridae) reproduction and longevity.
The knowledge of the biology of the natural enemy under different conditions allows to optimise the mass rearing and to predict the performance of the predator in different photoperiods which may occur along the year and in greenhouses. Expand
Feeding habits of Carabidae (Coleoptera) associated with herbaceous plants and the phenology of coloured cotton
The digestive tract analysis indicated various types of diets and related arthropods for Abaris basistriata, Galerita brasiliensis, Scarites sp. Expand
The effect of the entomopathogenic fungus Lecanicillium longisporum (Petch) Zare & Gams (Hypocreales: Cordycipitacea) on the aphid parasitoid Diaeretiella rapae McIntoch (Hymenoptera: Braconidae,
The results indicate that there are two biological control agents that can be used in IPM systems against M. persicae, but this relationship requires some caution in order to avoid antagonistic interactions in the field. Expand
