Blueberry is a crop native to North America with expanding production and consumption worldwide. In the historical regions of production, integrated pest management (IPM) programs have been developed and provided effective control of key insect pests. These have integrated monitoring programs with physical, cultural, biological, behavioral, and chemical controls to meet the intense demands of consumers and modern food systems. Globalization of the blueberry industry has resulted in new pest… 
Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae): A Decade of Research Towards a Sustainable Integrated Pest Management Program
This review evaluates the most promising methods studied as part of an IPM strategy against SWD across the world and considers the effectiveness, impact, sustainability, and stage of development of each technique.
Complementary Contribution of Wild Bumblebees and Managed Honeybee to the Pollination Niche of an Introduced Blueberry Crop
The spatio-temporal and functional complementarity between honeybee and bumblebees suggested here encourages the consideration of an integrated crop pollination strategy for blueberries, based on the concurrence of both wild and managed bees.
Detection of blueberry stunt phytoplasma in Eastern Canada using cpn60-based molecular diagnostic assays
A chaperonin-60 (cpn60)-targeted LAMP assay is designed and validated, providing a rapid, low cost, field-deployable diagnostic option for detection of BBSP, and it is found that pathogen load fluctuates in individual plants, both within and between growing seasons.
Exploring the Efficacy and Mechanisms of a Crop Sterilant for Reducing Infestation by Spotted-Wing Drosophila (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
The potential for microbial management as a component of integrated pest management programs is highlighted and research needs to incorporate this approach into control programs are prioritised.
First Record of Invasive Pest Blueberry Gall Midge, Dasineura oxycoccana (Johnson) in Mexico: Molecular and Morphological Confirmation
Once identified, complete control of the pest was achieved 4 weeks after proper measures were initiated, and both (morphometric and molecular) approaches agreed that all analyzed specimens were D. oxycoccana.
Non-crop habitats serve as a potential source of spotted-wing drosophila (Diptera: Drosophilidae) to adjacent cultivated highbush blueberries (Ericaceae)
It is document that non-crop habitats, and wild hosts therein, are used by D. suzukii during fruit ripening and may serve as potential sources of infestation to nearby highbush blueberry fields.
Evolution of blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L), raspberry (Rubus idaeus L) and strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) research: 2012–2021
Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are soft fruits marketed worldwide, with unique sensory, nutritional and biological properties. This bibliometric comparative analysis aims to analyse the
Diversity in Metabolites and Fruit Quality Traits in Blueberry Enables Ploidy and Species Differentiation and Establishes a Strategy for Future Genetic Studies
The results of this study provide a framework to uncover the genetic basis of bioactive compounds and fruit quality traits and will be useful to advance blueberry-breeding programs focusing on integrating these traits.
Discovery of Scirtothrips dorsalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) in Blueberry Fields of Michoacan, Mexico
Preliminary samplings of thrips in blueberry plots in Michoacan, Mexico, have uncovered an important global pest that was not known to be present in this country, Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood (Thysanoptera: Thripidae).
Plant guttation provides nutrient-rich food for insects
The results demonstrate that plant guttation is highly reliable, compared to other plant-derived food sources such as nectar, and that it increases the communities and fitness of insects.
