Competitive displacement among insects and arachnids.
It is suggested that competitive displacement has the potential to be a widespread phenomenon, and the frequency of these displacement events may increase, given the ever-increasing degree of anthropogenic changes to the environment.
Biology and Ecology of the Western Flower Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae): The Making of a Pest
- S. Reitz
- 26 March 2009
This review addresses questions regarding the biological and ecological attributes of western flower thrips that have enabled it to become a significant pest and make it so difficult to manage.

It is suggested that UV-reflective mulch, combined with early season applications of spinosad, can effectively reduce abundance of thrips in field-grown pepper.
Western flower thrips resistance to insecticides: detection, mechanisms and management strategies.
More effective management of western-flower-thrips- and thrips-transmitted virus management will be achieved by considering their management in the context of overall integrated pest management, with IRM being a key component of those comprehensive programs.
Comparative Bionomics of Frankliniella occidentalis and Frankliniella tritici
- S. Reitz
- 1 September 2008
This study compared development and reproductive success of Frankliniella occidentalis and F tritici from specimens collected in Gadsden County, FL to provide critical information to better understand their population dynamics.
Interspecific and intraspecific differences in two Liriomyza leafminer species in California
Data indicate that central and southern California populations of each species are distinct biotypes and suggest the possible existence of cryptic species within L. trifolii and L. huidobrensis populations.
Host plant selection and development in Spodoptera exigua: do mother and offspring know best?
The ovipositional preference and larval development of Spodoptera exigua (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) on two common hosts in southern California is examined to determine if female oviposition preference is correlated with offspring performance.
SEASONAL AND WITHIN PLANT DISTRIBUTION OF FRANKLINIELLA THRIPS (THYSANOPTERA: THRIPIDAE) IN NORTH FLORIDA TOMATOES
- S. Reitz
- 1 September 2002
Differences in seasonal patterns and within plant distribution of Frankliniella occidentalis and tritici should be considered in developing sampling protocols and management plans for thrips.
Emergence of Groundnut ringspot virus and Tomato chlorotic spot virus in Vegetables in Florida and the Southeastern United States.
Further spread of GRSV and TCSV in the United States is possible and detection of mixed infections highlights the opportunity for additional reassortment of tospovirus genomic RNAs.
