Synthetic host volatiles increase efficacy of trap cropping for management of Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say)

Abstract  1 The attractiveness of pitfall traps baited with a synthetic host volatile attractant to colonizing adult Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) was evaluated in a field

A novel mechanism for resistance to Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) in wild Solanum species

Through a preliminary field-test screen, three Solamm species, Solamm trifidum, S. raphanifolium, and S. circaeifolio, were identified with low foliar glycoalkaloid levels and no glandular trichomes, but still exhibiting substantial resistance to L decemlineata.

Speciation via Differential Host–Plant Use in the Tephritid Fly Tephritis conura

This chapter summarizes results addressing host-race evolution in the tephritid fly Tephritis conura infesting Cirsium heterophyllum and C. oleraceum and addresses the importance of plant population history for diversification of T. conura.

Damage potential and phenology of the Colorado potato beetle [Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae] on potato in southern Alberta

Results montrent que la phenologie du doryphore est similaire a celle rapportee pour des regions ou les accroissements de population ont ete rapides and devastateurs des que des populations resistantes aux insecticides sont apparues.

Comparative analysis of Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say) resistance monitoring methods

It was determined, that adults are more suitable for testing and topical application was chosen by comparative analysis for further investigations, because of it's best performances for most parameters.

Incidence of natural enemies of the Colorado potato beetle,Leptinotarsa decemlineata [Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae] on a native host in Mexico

Observations during 2 years in Morelos, Mexico revealed 4 species of asopine pentatomids, 7 species of foliar searching carabids, and 2 coccinellids among the predators of L. decemlineata.

Impact of the parasite, Chrysomelobia labidomerae Eickwort, on the Colorado potato beetle

Experiments in Mexico showed that mite infested beetles initiated flight less often than non-infested beetles and flew shorter as mite density increased, and longevity shortened with increasing initial mite inoculation density.



The Influence of an Alternate Host Plant on the Fecundity of the Colorado Potato Beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)

Colorado potato beetles fed foliage of Solanum sarrachoides undergo a slower larval development and sexual maturation than beetles fed S. tuberosum. Females fed S. sarrachoides foliage have a lower

Distribution and new host records of a race of Chrysomelobia labidomerae Eickwort (Acari: Tarsonemina; podapolipidae) attacking the Colorado potato beetle in Mexico

ABSTRACT Distribution and host data are given for a race of Chrysomelobia labidomerae Eickwort, an ectoparasite of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), and some closely

Influence of Pesticides on Beauveria bassiana, a Pathogen of the Colorado Potato Beetle

The commonly recommended lateblight fungicides and insecticides inhibited growth of B. bassiana and the experimental fungicide CGA48988 and the insecticide permethrin showed the least inhibition of the fungus.

Contact Toxicities of Ten Insecticides to Connecticut Populations of the Colorado Potato Beetle

Pennethrin was quite toxic to Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say).; aldicarb, endosulfan, and ox amyl were moderately toxic, but azinphosmethyl, carbaryl, carbofuran, malathion, metharnidophos, and


In Colorado beetle females fed with physiologically aged potato leaves, an inhibition or even a standstill of reproduction occurs, followed by diapause.

Antifeedants for the Colorado Potato Beetle—I. Antifeeding Constituents of Some Plants from the Sagebrush Community

It is indicated that water soluble substances present in the waste marc after steam distillation of peppermint oil were highly active, too.

Survival of the Colorado potato beetle on virus‐infected tomato in relation to plant nitrogen and alkaloid content

Infection by tobacco mosaic virus improved the suitability of tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum Mill, for survival of Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), larvae. This improvement

Aphid honeydew as a carbohydrate source for Edovum puttleri (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)

Because aphids do not usually colonize potato crops until early July in the Northeast, honeydew scarcity may prevent early-season establishment of this parasitoid in potato.

Survival of Inoculum of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana as Influenced by Fungicides

Four fungicides used commercially for control of foliar diseases of potato were evaluated in Vitro and under field conditions for effects on survival of spores of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) a

Generations of entomologists have learned and taught that the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), originally lived on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and fed on buffalo
