ABSTRACT The impact of trademarked and commercial products on settling of adults of the sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius), was studied in the laboratory. A no-choice bioassay using leaf disks of tomato, Solanum esculentum L., was developed to evaluate the impact of concentration series of products on settling of B. tabaci adults. The concentration of each product that would reduce settling by 50% (SC50) was estimated for each product using standard probit analyses, and the… Expand
A Primary Screening and Applying of Plant Volatiles as Repellents to Control Whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) on Tomato
TLDR
The tests for evaluating the repellent efficacy, showed that a slow-releasing bottle containing the mixture had a period of efficacy of 29 days, and the application of this mixture plus a yellow board used as a push-pull strategy in the greenhouse was also effective. Expand
Insecticidal and oviposition deterrent effects of essential oils of Baccharis spp. and histological assessment against Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
TLDR
B Baccharis EOs and their isolated constituent, limonene, proved to be promising alternatives for developing bioinsecticides to manage of D. suzukii and had morphological and physiological alterations and deformations after exposure to treatments containing EOs, which resulted in high larval, pupal, and adult mortality.

Bemisia tabaci on Vegetables in the Southern United States: Incidence, Impact, and Management
TLDR
The sweetpotato whitefly is now regarded as one of the most destructive insect pests in vegetable production systems in the Southern United States, and integrated pest management tactics are warranted, including cultural control by manipulation of production practices, resistant vegetable varieties, biological control using various natural enemies, and the judicious use of insecticides.

Acetylated glyceride: A novel repellent which interferes with tomato yellow leaf curl virus acquisition and its transmission by Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae)
TLDR
In a no-choice test, fewer adult females settled on grape tomato leaves treated with acetylated glyceride than non-treated leaves up to 2 days after adult release (DAR) during 7-day observation periods, reducing the frequency of individuals that acquired TYLCV only for 2 DAR. Expand
Effect of neem on Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton and its parasitoid Ageniaspis citricola Logvinovskaya in Ecuador
Efficacy of neem on Citrus Leafminer (CLM) and effect on its parasitoid Ageniaspis citricola was evaluated, using field, cage and olfactometer tests. Treatments were: aqueous extract of neem (50 gL),Expand
Repellency, toxicity, and oviposition inhibition of vegetable extracts against greenhouse whitefly Trialeurodes vaporariorum (Westwood) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae)
TLDR
Water and ethanolic extracts of R. raphanistrum and P. auritum represent a useful tool in integrated whitefly management and are suggested to be effective in inhibiting oviposition. Expand
Identification of Insect-Deterrent Metabolites from Acremonium masseei strain CICY026, a Saprophytic Fungus from a Sinkhole in Yucatán
TLDR
New knowledge about mycobiota from these special sinkhole ecosystems will inform the development of new biorational pesticides and help to discover novel natural products to control insect pests. Expand
Transmitting Plant Viruses Using Whiteflies
TLDR
Whitefly maintenance described here can generate hundreds or thousands of adult whiteflies on plants each week, year round, without the contamination of other plant viruses, and can be quickly scaled to increase or decrease population numbers as needed. Expand
Combining reduced-risk products, trap crops and yellow sticky traps for greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum) management on sweet peppers (Capsicum annum)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that eggplant trap crops and eggplant combined with yellow cards reduced adult settling on main crops by 31.5 and 40.9% respectively. Expand
Insecticidal and nematicidal essential oils from Argentinean Eupatorium and Baccharis spp.
TLDR
Among these oils, E. viscidum showed a strong nematicidal effect and the essential oil from B. salicifolia had post-ingestive toxicity to Spodoptera littoralis larvae without antifeedant effects. Expand

Effects of five vegetable oils on the sweetpotato whiteflyBemisia tabaci
TLDR
The effects of five economically important vegetable (seed) oils, peanut, cottonseed, castor, soybean and sunflower, on adult and immature stages of the sweetpotato whitefly were studied in the laboratory. Expand
Sweetpotato Whitefly (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae): Effects of Neem-seed Extract on Oviposition and Immature Stages
TLDR
Although the mode of action of the extract is unknown, it was observed that adults were repelled, thus reducing oviposition and the failure of treated larvae to complete ecdysis would indicate an antiecdysteroid activity. Expand
Repellency of ginger oil to Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) on tomato.
TLDR
Ginger oil has potential as a protectant of tomato seedlings against B. argentifolii, but issues of phytotoxicity and coverage need to be addressed. Expand
Relationship of the sweetpotato whitefly to a new tomato fruit disorder in Florida
TLDR
A new disorder of fruit has been observed on tomato (Lycopersicon escu- lentum Mill.) in Florida and was associated with field populations of the sweetpotato whitefly and is char- acterized by incomplete ripening of longitudinal sections of fruit. Expand
Toxicity and repellency of some biorational insecticides to Bemisia argentifolii on tomato plants
TLDR
Sunspray oil as a dip proved to be at least as effective as the synthetic pyrethroid for whitefly control and a multiple‐choice leaf‐wheel proved toBe a useful device to quickly evaluate repellent effects of several different insecticides to whitefly. Expand
Repellency and Toxicity of a Horticultural Oil against Whiteflies on Chrysanthemum
TLDR
The repellency and toxicity of a petroleum-based proprietary horticultural oil, Sunspray 6E Plus, was tested against the greenhouse whitefly and it was toxic to newly hatched and third stage larval whiteflies. Expand
Insecticidal control and resistance management for Bemisia tabaci
TLDR
Insecticide resistance management strategies based on the structured and restricted use of these new modes of action, and coupled with the use of cultural and biological pest management tactics, presently provides the best model for combating insecticide resistance in B. tabaci. Expand
Comparison of Neem, Urea, and Amitraz as Oviposition Suppressants and Larvicides Against Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that the use of neem or Amitraz as alternative chemicals in a resistance management program for whiteflies deserves consideration. Expand
Action Threshold for Applying Insect Growth Regulators to Tomato for Management of Irregular Ripening Caused by Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae)
  • D. Schuster
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of economic entomology
  • 2002
TLDR
An action threshold for applying the insect growth regulators buprofezin and pyriproxyfen to manage B. argentifolii and irregular ripening was developed and the five nymphs per 10 leaflets threshold lends itself to field scouting because nymphal counts completed in the field using the unaided eye supplemented with a 10× hand lens were linearly and significantly related to counts completed with a dissecting microscope.
