BACKGROUND Recommended action thresholds for soybean aphid, Aphis glycines, do not adjust for natural enemy impact, although natural enemies contribute important biological control services. Because individual natural enemy species have varied impacts on pest population dynamics, incorporating the impact of a diverse predator guild into an action threshold can be cumbersome. RESULTS Field surveys identified an aphidophagous natural enemy complex dominated by Orius insidiosus, Coccinella… CONTINUE READING
