The biology of Psyllaephagus bliteus Riek (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), a parasitoid of the red gum lerp psyllid (Hemiptera: Psylloidea)
Observations of host-handling behavior suggest that the large lerps of fifth instar psyllids increase host- handling time, thereby impeding oviposition and providing some protection from parasitism.
Biological control of the blue gum psyllid proves economically beneficial
In 1992 a parasitoid native to Australia was introduced into California in a biological control program directed against the blue gum psyllid from Australia. Interviews with baby blue gum eucalyptus
Two new species of Tamarixia (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) from Chile and Australia, established as biological control agents of invasive psyllids (Hemiptera: Calophyidae, Triozidae) in California
The use of Tamarixia in biological control is discussed, and an annotated list of world species including distribution, hosts, and host plants, is provided.
Long-Term Sampling of Eucallipterus tiliae (Homoptera: Drepanosiphidae) and Associated Natural Enemies in a Northern California Site
Introduced Eucallipterus tiliae (L.) populations on Tilia cordata Miller in northern California were sampled from 1981 to 1987. E. tiliae was more abundant in the lower canopy, with a tendency toward
