Overwintering insect (Arthropoda: Insecta) biodiversity in pistachio orchards of the Middle Euphrates Valley, Turkey

The results revealed that burlap sack and corrugated cardboard artificial winter shelters can be used to monitor harmful and beneficial insect fauna overwintering in fruit orchards.

Yerli entomopatojenik fungus izolatları ile üç ticari entomopatojenik fungus ürününün Sitophilus oryzae L. ve Tribolium confusum du Val üzerindeki etkinlikleri

In the present study, a total of 17 indigenous entomopathogenic fungal (EPF) isolates (Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill. – 14, Clonostachys rosea (Link) Schroers – 2, Isaria farinosa (Holmsk.) Fr. –

Prevalence and management of aphids (Hemiptera: Aphididae) in different wheat genotypes and their impact on yield and related traits

Hicap proved the most effective for the management of aphid species followed by Hombre and Husk among tested seed dressers, while Citrullus colocynthis L. and Moringa oleifera Lam exhibited the highest efficacy among different plant extracts used in the study.

Obstructs-equipped apparatus reduces cannibalism and improves larval survival of the Coccinellid, Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)

It is demonstrated that H. axyridis can be reared at a higher density in a constrained unit and the effects of obstructs in reducing cannibalism and improving insect survivals are highlighted.



Coccinellidae species, their distribution areas and their impact on population fluctuations of Agonoscena pistaciae at Pistachio orchards in Southeastern Anatolia Region in Turkey.

Bu calisma, Adiyaman, Mardin, Siirt ve Şanliurfa illerindeki antepfistigi alanlarinda 1996 ve 1997 yillarinda yurutulmustur. Agonoscena pistaciae Burckhardt and Lauterer Turkiye'de ekonomik oneme

Population development of Suturaspis pistaciae Lindinger (Hem.: Diaspididae) and its natural enemies.

Bu calisma, Şanliurfa Ili Antepfistiklarinda 1996-1998 yillari arasinda yapilmistir, yaprak ve meyvelerinde emgi yaparak zararli olan bir turdur, ancak dogal dusmanlarinin zarARli uzerinde etkili oldugu.


The apparent voracity of C. bipustulatus on the different phenological stages of S. oleae is an aspect that suggests the possible use of this coccinellid species in biological control programs against this pest in olive groves.

Biological control of Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) in Florida : a preliminary report

The Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri, recently invaded the citrus-producing regions of Florida, reaching the northern limits of commercial production in summer of 2001. Preliminary observations

Life history parameters of the coccinellid beetle, Oenopia conglobata contaminata, an important predator of the common pistachio psylla, Agonoscena pistaciae (Hemiptera: Psylloidea)

In a laboratory choice experiment, the adult ladybirds showed a strong preference for A. pistaciae compared to A. gossypii, in agreement with field observation that O. conglobata contaminata is almost always found on psyllid colonies, even when aphids were plentiful on weeds in the pistachio orchards.

Life table and biological studies of Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Col., Coccinellidae) reared on the grain moth eggs of Sitotroga cerealella Olivier (Lep., Gelechiidae)

Survival per cent from egg hatching to adult emergence differed significantly when the predator fed on the two diets of GME, and rates of survivorship (Lx), and maximum oviposition per female per day (Mx) were higherWhen the predator was reared on fresh than on frozen GME.

The Effect of Density on Some Population Parameters of Rhodnius Prolixus (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) Under Laboratory Conditions

Density has a statistically significant effect on the developmental rate of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th nymphal instars of R. prolixus, but not on the nymphAL survivorship, and this population is probably limited by the independent or combined action of dispersal and natural enemies.

A primary survey of aphid species on almond and peach, and natural enemies of Brachycaudus amygdalinus in As-Sweida, Southern Syria.

Syria is one of the biggest almond producer country in the world and few arthropdes that live on almond are consider as pests, but more should be known about the pests and their natural enemies in order to use better bio- and organic decisions.

Voracity and feeding preferences of two aphidophagous coccinellids on Aphis citricola and Tetranychus urticae

The results suggest that T. urticae is only an alternative prey for both predators, and that H. axyridis should be more efficient than C. septempunctata in a prey assemblage with aphids and mites.

The effects of crowding on the survival, rate of development, size, colour and fecundity of Dysdercus fasciatus Sign. (Hem., Pyrrhocoridae) in the laboratory

The effects of crowding on D. fasciatus do not completely parallel phase differences in locusts, but the length of the nymphal and adult life decreased when more than 12 insects were reared per 200-cc.
