Psyllids are economically important as pests of several horticultural crops and also as biocontrol agents of weeds. Diaphorina citri, Apsylla cistellata and Heteropsylla cubana are the predominant psyllid pests in India. Asian citrus psylla, D. citri is one of the major threats to citrus cultivation not only as a pest but also as a vector of citrus greening, while A. cistellata is a gall inducer affecting panicle emergence in mango. Heteropsylla cubana infests Leucana leucocephala, an important… Expand
Tamarixia radiata (Waterston) and Cheilomenes sexmaculata (Fabricius) as biological control agents of Diaphorina citri Kuwayama in Ecuador
TLDR
The presence of two important natural enemies of D. citri in Ecuador are reported for the first time, i.e., its main parasitoid Tamarixia radiata and the adventitious ladybird beetle Cheilomenes sexmaculata. Expand
Laboratory Evaluation of Local Plant Extracts and an Organophosphate Insecticide against Seabuckthorn Psyllid
Psyllids or jumping plant lice are small phloem feeding insects having piercing and sucking mouth parts. The psyllids have been reported to vector phytoplasma diseases in horticultural plants. ForExpand
Feeding Biology and Nutritional Physiology of Psylloidea(Insecta:Hemiptera):Implications in Host-Plant Relations
TLDR
Varying nutrient levels in leaves regulate populations of the gregariously feeding Psylloidea, and variations in guilds and feeding behaviour determine the nutritional ecology and physiology of the Psylloida. Expand
Evaluation of effectiveness of various insecticides for the management of citrus Psylla, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama
TLDR
The study evaluated the effectiveness of various insecticides against citrus psylla, Diaphorina citri during the year 2014-2015 at Pantnagar to find thiamethoxam was found most effective in reducing the population of adults of citrusPsylla with highest per cent reduction. Expand
AN OVERVIEW ON SOME BIOTIC AND ABIOTIC FACTORS AFFECTING THE POPULATION DYNAMICS OF LEUCAENA PSYLLID, Heteropsylla Cubana Crawford (HOMOPTERA: PSYLLIDAE): CONTRIBUTORY FACTORS FOR PEST MANAGEMENT
The present review was written with the objectives of providing basic information for pest control about leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla cuban a Crawford (Homoptera: Psyllidae) the most destructiveExpand
Monitoring of Resistance in Field Populations of Scirtothrips dorsalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Liviidae) to Commonly Used Insecticides in Citrus in Central India
TLDR
Results from this study indicate that the evolution of insecticide resistance and cross-resistance may be decelerated by the rotational use of insecticides with different modes of action. Expand
Pre-release Efficacy Test of the Proposed Biological Control Agent Arrytinis hakani on the Invasive Weed Genista monspessulana
TLDR
Although increasing A. hakani densities had a significant negative impact on number of leaflets grown and percent change in height, the psyllid did not cause leaf senescence or destroy any of the plants even at its highest density. Expand
Pest status of leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla Cubana crawford (Homoptera: Psyllidae) and biological control agents in eastern Tanzania
TLDR
This paper presents a preliminary evaluation of the requirements for the degree of master of science in ecology and management ofOKOINE University of AGRICULTURE in Tanzania. Expand

TLDR
It is speculated that the gall midges may have progressed conservatively specializing along the host-plant lines, because of the need for precise timing and for minimizing competitive interactions with other parasitic, predatory, and inquilinous arthropods, from the time of original host colonization.
