  author={Xiao-yi Wang and Zuo-rui Shen},
An attempt was made to achieve low environmental risk control of insect pests using sublethal concentrations of insecticides, enhanced by the effect of high temperatures (>25°C). For each of the insecticides imidacloprid, abamectin, pirimicarb and azadirachtin, the lethal and sublethal concentrations were determined for the green peach aphidMyzus persicae (Sulzer) (Homoptera: Aphididae) and its predator, the lady beetleHarmonia axyridis (Pallas). The lady beetle was more tolerant of all four… CONTINUE READING
