ABSTRACT The Southeast Asian citrus-feeding butterfly Princeps (Papilio) demoleus (L.) was recently introduced into the Americas, causing an imminent threat to citrus production and ornamental flora. The human nutrient amino acid methionine has been shown by us to disrupt aminoacid-modulated ion transport systems in caterpillars and other insect larvae that possess an alkaline midgut. Heraclides (Papilio) cresphontes was bioassayed as a United States Department of Agriculture permitted… 
Safety of methionine, a novel biopesticide, to adult and larval honey bees (Apis mellifera L.).
Methionine as a safe and effective novel biorational mosquito larvicide.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that methionine is a highly effective mosquito larvicide that can provide a beneficial new biorational, environmentally sustainable tool to control pestiferous mosquitoes.
Citrus Butterfly (Papilio demoleus Linnaeus) Bioiogy and Management: A Review
TLDR
The biocompatible, biodegradable bio-pesticides like BTB, BTK, NSKE, azadirachtin, diofenolan, methonine etc., which interfere with the pests morphological and physiological aspects like feeding, moulting, cellular construction and cell immune system without affecting the natural environmental balance were clearly reviewed in this paper.
Novel effective mosquito larvicide DL-methionine: Lack of toxicity to non-target aquatic organisms.
Transcriptomic and metabolomic analyses reveal that bacteria promote plant defense during infection of soybean cyst nematode in soybean
TLDR
The results validated and expanded the existing models regarding the co-regulation of gene expression and metabolites in plants, indicating the advantage of integrated system-oriented analysis.
Deconstructing the surrogate species concept: a life history approach to the protection of ecosystem services.
TLDR
The results indicate that these parasitoid wasp species have different population responses to toxic insult, and suggest that the ability to predict the fate of a suite of species using the response of just one species is widely variable and potentially misleading.

TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess species diversity and population abundance of pollinating insects in some different regions of Iraq and the species of Myathropa florae (Linnaeus, 1758) was registered as a new record from Iraq.

The Provenance of Old World Swallowtail Butterflies, Papilio demoleus (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae), Recently Discovered in the New World
TLDR
Genetic markers confirmed earlier estimates, based on morphology, that the Old World swallowtail butterfly Papilio demoleus had originated in Southeast Asia, where the species is known to be a citrus pest.
EVALUATION OF THE AMINO ACID L-METHIONINE FOR CONTROL OF TOBACCO HORNWORM
Studies using an artificial diet, excised leaves, and whole growing plants ("Classic" variety of eggplant) were carried out to test the insecticidal efficacy of L-methionine. This amino acid has been

Papilio demoleus (the lime swallowtail) (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae), a potential pest of citrus, expanding its range in the Caribbean.
TLDR
P. P. demoleus is now well established in most Jamaican parishes and is a minor pest in citrus nurseries.
Molecular phylogeny, historical biogeography, and divergence time estimates for swallowtail butterflies of the genus Papilio (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae).
TLDR
This divergence time suggests that Papilio has slower apparent substitution rates than do Drosophila and fig-pollinating wasps and/or divergences corrected using best-fit substitution models are still being consistently underestimated.

TLDR
In order to make experimental studies comparable and statistically meaningful, the article recommends the following formula: per cent control = 100(X - Y)/X, which eliminates errors due to deaths in the control sample which were not due to the insecticide.

TLDR
A unique model for understanding the molecular mechanisms, physiology, and evolution of amino acid and neurotransmitter transport systems is provided and it is implied that monoamine and GABA transporters evolved by selection and conservation of earlier neuronal NATs.
Giant Swallowtail, Orangedog, Papilio cresphontes Cramer (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Papilionidae)
TLDR
This striking, wonderfully “exotic”-looking butterfly that is very abundant in Florida, and whose larva is the well-known “orangedog” that is a minor pest of sweet orange and other members of the citrus family is described — its distribution, description, life cycle, host plants, biological control and other control methods.

TLDR
The first record of the citrus pest Papilio demoleus LinnaeusLinnaeus collected near Guánica in the United States, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, in March 2006 is reported.
A Novel Electrogenic Amino Acid Transporter Is Activated by K+ or Na+, Is Alkaline pH-dependent, and Is Cl−-independent*
TLDR
A new eukaryotic nutrient amino acid transporter has been cloned from an epithelium that is exposed to high voltages and alkaline pH, and its expression product in Xenopus oocytes displayed a combination of several unique, unanticipated functional properties.
