Augmentative biological control of arthropods in Latin America
TLDR
Latin America currently is a main player in the field of augmentative releases, with the use of natural enemies andantagonists for disease and pest control inprotected cultivation, for example, in Colombia, Brazil and Peru. Expand
Type of prey influences biology and consumption rate of Orius insidiosus (Say) (Hemiptera, Anthocoridae)
TLDR
Eggs of A. kuehniella are the type of prey best suited for rearing this predator insect under laboratory conditions and fecundity was better with this prey even though the predator consumed during its nymphal stage a lesser quantity of eggs compared to the other prey. Expand
New records of Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) predation by Brazilian Hemipteran predatory bugs
TLDR
In Brazil, four Hemipteran predatory bugs, not yet known to attack T. absoluta, were found to successfully prey on eggs and larvae of this pest, and results on their predation capacity, development, survival and reproduction on T.Absoluta on tomato plants are presented. Expand
Aphid parasitoids (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Aphidiinae) and their associations related to biological control in Brazil
TLDR
The general features of the target parasitoid fauna of Central and South America is summarized and promising biological control programs of some aphid species in Brazil is discussed. Expand
Life history data and population growth of Tuta absoluta at constant and alternating temperatures on two tomato lines
TLDR
Development, sex ratio, weight, fecundity and population growth of T. absoluta at constant and alternating temperature on two tomato lines, which were expected to have different levels of resistance to the tomato borer, indicate that Bravo is the most suitable host plant of the two. Expand
Response of the zoophytophagous predators Macrolophus pygmaeus and Nesidiocoris tenuis to volatiles of uninfested plants and to plants infested by prey or conspecifics
TLDR
Both predators are attracted to volatiles from prey-infested plants, and it is provided the first evidence that experience affects this response in M. pygmaeus. Expand
The effect of the quality and size of host aphid species on the biological characteristics of Aphidius colemani (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Aphidiinae)
TLDR
A suitable host provides, at least, the minimum nutritional and physiological conditions for the development of the imma- ture stages of a parasitoids and large hosts seem to be better than small hosts based on parasitoid size. Expand
[Quality of different aphids as hosts of the parasitoid Lysiphlebus testaceipes (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae, Aphidiinae)].
TLDR
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
Cold storage affects mortality, body mass, lifespan, reproduction and flight capacity of Praon volucre (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
TLDR
Evaluated the effect of different periods of cold storage on immature mortality, mummy body mass, lifespan, reproduction and flight capacity of the parasitoid Praon volucre (Haliday), finding that females decreased with increase in the period of storage, while the longevity of females was only slightly affected.
