Abstract Foliar application of insecticides has been the most commonly followed practice to manage Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton in nurseries and flush leaves in citrus groves. Leaf dip bioassays were conducted against insecticides, viz., acephate 75SP, dimethoate 30EC, abamectin 1.9EC, fenvalerate 20EC, imidacloprid 17.8SL, and thiamethoxam 25WG, and were tested against P. citrella larvae for their susceptibility. Among six insecticides tested on second-instar P. citrella larvae collected… Expand
Studies of Systemic Insecticides and Custard Apple (Annaona Squamosa) Seed Extract Effects on Cotton Pest (Spodoptera litura), with Reference to Transgenic and Conventional Cotton Varieties
Transgenic cotton varieties were proved to be significantly effective and reduced pupation 10.80%, pupal weight 5.45% prolonged pupal duration 16.90% reduced adult emergence 29.41% as compared to the control. Expand
Turning a Drug Target into a Drug Candidate: A New Paradigm for Neurological Drug Discovery?
It appears that an ion channel found only in invertebrates offers the potential of a completely new paradigm in which an established drug target can be re‐engineered to serve as a new candidate therapeutic agent for epilepsy. Expand


Toxicity of insecticides to the citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella, and its parasitoids, Chrysocharis pentheus and Sympiesis striatipes (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
Three nicotinoide and two IGRs insecticides will be suitable candidates for use in the IPM program and showed low toxicity to Chrysocharis pentheus but moderate toxicity to Sympiesis striatipes. Expand
Occurrence of insecticide resistance in field populations of Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Pakistan
Correlation analysis indicated that insecticides belonging to the same class such as organophosphate, carbamate or pyrethroid exhibited a positive cross-resistance in S. litura. Expand
IPM-compatibility of foliar insecticides for citrus: Indices derived from toxicity to beneficial insects from four orders
A series of compounds representing four major pesticide groups were tested for toxicity to beneficial insects representing four different insect orders and ANOVA performed on composite survival indices derived from these data resolved significant differences among materials with respect to their overall toxicity. Expand
Data showed that a clear dependence existed between percentages of parasitism and citrus leafminer population density for the most frequent parasitoid populations, and showed that C. neotropicus has an important role among the native species present in Argentina. Expand
Population Dynamics of the Citrus Leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), and Its Natural Enemies in Texas and Mexico
Differences in P. citrella populations and those of its parasitoid complexes may be partially attributed to a hotter, drier climate in Texas than in Mexico. Expand
Status of insecticide resistance in Spodoptera litura in Andhra Pradesh, India
Twenty-two strains of the tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura (F.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), collected from groundnut crops in Andhra Pradesh, India, between 1991 and 1996 were assayed in the F1 generation for resistance to commonly used insecticides, indicating that esterases and possibly glutathione S-transferases were at least to some extent contributing to organophosphate resistance.

Adult Citrus Leafminers (Phyllocnistis citrella) Are Not Efficient Vectors for Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri.
The results support the conclusion that adult citrus leafminers are not efficient vectors for citrus canker bacteria, and the disease is unlikely to be spread this way. Expand
Impact of Phyllocnistis citrella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) on leaf area development and yield of mature citrus trees in the Mediterranean area.
The area-wide seasonal flushing pattern of citrus trees and leafminer population trends were determined and no significant differences were found between sprayed and nonsprayed trees in the spring flushing and flowering pattern, number of fruits or fruit diameter. Expand
Effectiveness of spinosad as a grain protectant against resistant beetle and psocid pests of stored grain in Australia
Findings suggest spinosad to be a potential protectant against R. dominica and L. entomophila in stored grain in Australia. Expand
Abamectin as a pesticide for agricultural use.
Abamectin has shown low toxicity to non-target beneficial arthropods which has accelerated its acceptance into Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs and its instability as well as its low water solubility and tight binding to soil, limit abamectIn's bioavailability in non- target organisms and prevent it from leaching into groundwater or entering the aquatic environment.
