Spirotetramat is a new systemic insecticide listed in Group 23 of the IRAC mode-of-action classification scheme as an inhibitor of lipid biosynthesis. Side effects assessment on key natural enemies is necessary before incorporating a pesticide in IPM programs. Herein, lethal and sublethal side effects of spirotetramat on adults and larvae of Cryptolaemus montrouzieri Mulsant (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) were evaluated under laboratory conditions by topical application and by ingestion of treated… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Compatibility of insecticides and fungicides with the zoophytophagous mirid predator Nesidiocoris tenuis
TLDR
Overall, findings suggest that the two insecticides, pyriproxyfen and spirotetramat but not cypermethrin, and all tested fungicides can be considered compatible with N. tenuis. Expand
Lethal and Sublethal Effects of Fenpropathrin on the Biological Performance of Scolothrips longicornis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)
TLDR
Exposure to low-lethal concentrations of fenpropathrin significantly affected the biological characteristics of treated females of S. longicornis, the most noticeable effects being a shortening of female life span accompanied by large reductions in oviposition period and fecundity. Expand
Sublethal Effects of Four Insecticides on the Seven-Spotted Lady Beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Results suggest that spirotetramat might be incorporated into IPM programs in combination with C. septempunctata for control of A. spiniferus and T. aurantii based on the selective toxicity ratios being superior to other tested insecticides. Expand
Effects of spirotetramat treatments on fecundity and carboxylesterase expression of Aphis gossypii Glover
TLDR
Spiroteramat showed potential for pest management of cotton aphids owing to both lethal and sublethal activities, notably strong impact on aphid fecundity and increased tolerance of A. gossypii to spirotetramat when the parents were exposed to the highest concentration tested in this study. Expand
Lethal and sublethal effects of spirotetramat and abamectin on predatory beetles (Menochilus sexmaculatus) via prey (Agonoscena pistaciae) exposure, important for integrated pest management in pistachio orchards
TLDR
The importance of toxicity risk assessments, including lethal and sublethal effects, is highlighted to obtain a more accurate estimation of the compatibility of insecticides in current integrated pest management (IPM) programs. Expand
Relative Toxicity of Spirotetramat to Riptortus pedestris (Hemiptera: Alydidae) and its Egg Parasitoids
TLDR
Results show that spirotetramat is less toxic to the egg parasitoids of bean bug than to bean bug itself and would thus be useful in an integrated management program for this pest. Expand
Lethal and sublethal effects of two new insecticides spirotetramat and flupyradifurone in comparison to conventional insecticide deltamethrin on Trichogramma evanescens (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)
TLDR
The results indicated that lethal (LC50) and sublethal (LC30) concentrations of three tested insecticides significantly reduced the fecundity and longevity of T. evanescens, notwithstanding sublethal concentration of flupyradifurone followed by spirotetramat were more compatible with adults T. evade in comparison with deltamethrin. Expand
Toxicity assessment of four insecticides with different modes of action on pupae and adults of Eriopis connexa (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), a relevant predator of the Neotropical Region
TLDR
The neurotoxic insecticides were more harmful than the insect-growth regulators, and pupae were more susceptible than adults, so the conservation of predators in agroecosystems of the Neotropical Region is discussed. Expand
Effects of spirotetramat insecticide on life history traits and population growth of Encarsia formosa (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae)
TLDR
Sublethal effects of a spirotetramat insecticide on life history traits and population growth of two local Serbian populations and one commercial Dutch population of Encarsia formosa Gahan were evaluated in laboratory bioassays and can be classified as compatible with E. formasa in integrated whitefly management. Expand
Side Effects of Spirotetramat and Imidacloprid on Hippodamia variegata Goezee Feeding on Agonoscena pistaciae Burckhardt & Lauterer
TLDR
Spirotetramat and imidacloprid were suggested to be used in IPM of Agonoscena pistaciae with caution because they had caused adverse effects on the demographic parameters of H. variegata and had also influenced the efficiency of this predator. Expand

Effect of Insecticides on Mealybug Destroyer (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) and Parasitoid Leptomastix dactylopii (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), Natural Enemies of Citrus Mealybug (Homoptera: Pseudococcidae)
TLDR
The indirect effects of the IGR pyriproxyfen and the insecticide flonicamid were not directly or indirectly harmful to the predator C. montrouzieri and parastioid L. dactylopii, indicating that these insecticides are compatible with both natural enemies when used together for control of citrus mealybug in greenhouses and conservatories.

TLDR
The indirect effects of the IGR pyriproxyfen and the insecticide flonicamid were not directly or indirectly harmful to the predator C. montrouzieri and parastioid L. dactylopii, indicating that these insecticides are compatible with both natural enemies when used together for control of citrus mealybug in greenhouses and conservatories.

Evaluating side effects of newer insecticides on the vine mealybug parasitoid Anagyrus sp. near pseudococci, with implications for integrated pest management in vineyards
TLDR
None of the insecticides adversely affected the development of the parasitoid pupal stage inside mealybug mummies or the survival of the emerged parasitoids. Expand
Susceptibility of cocooned pupae and adults of the parasitoid Microplitis mediator to selected insecticides
TLDR
Investigation of the side effects of six insecticides applied at recommended field rates on adults and cocooned pupae of M. mediator found sub-lethal effects in terms of reduced parasitization activity, percentage of parasitism or female longevity were found for flonicamid, pymetrozine, spinosad and thiacloprid. Expand
Side effects of pesticides on the larvae of the hoverfly Episyrphus balteatus in the laboratory
TLDR
Thiacloprid and spirotetramat can be used safely in integrated pest management programs to control the cabbage aphid, and should be tested in semi-field and field situations to assess their toxicity under more realistic conditions. Expand
Efficacy of five selected acaricides against Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) and their side effects on relevant natural enemies occurring in citrus orchards.
TLDR
When considering both efficacy and side effects on beneficial arthropods, the best options would seem to be mineral oil, tebufenpyrad and clofentezine, however, it is urgent to complete testing of the side effects of the acaricides used in citrus. Expand
Effects of spinosad and indoxacarb on survival, development, and reproduction of the multicolored Asian lady beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that spinosad and indoxacarb may reduce H. axyridis population growth by affecting its survival, development, and reproduction and the importance of sublethal effects of insecticides, as well as acute toxicity, in toxicological studies with natural enemies is discussed within the context of biological control and IPM. Expand
Feeding behavior ofCryptolaemus montrouzieri on mealybugs parasitized byAnagyrus pseudococci
TLDR
The highest consumption values for all stages of C. montrouzieri occurred with 2- and 4-day parasitized mealybugs, whereas the predator did not feed on either species of mealybug parasitized for longer periods, due to the onset of mummification. Expand

TLDR
The new mode of action renders spirotetramat as an excellent rotation partner with existing products for the management of aphid, whitefly and psyllid populations, which are frequently resistant to conventional insecticides, which make the product suitable for modern integrated pest management (IPM) systems.
