The compatibility of Orius laevigatus Fieber with Neoseiulus (Amblyseius) cucumeris Oudemans as predators of Frankliniella occidentalis Pergande was assessed in 24 h tests on French bean leaf discs. At varying densities of N. cucumeris and F. occidentalis in the presence of a single female O. laevigatus, it was found that O. laevigatus fed on both other organisms to a similar extent, thus raising questions as to the suitability of this combination of predators in the biocontrol of F… CONTINUE READING
