The side effect of 10 insecticides, 5 fungicides and 5 herbicides on 24 different species of beneficial organisms was tested by members of the Working Group ‘Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms’ of the International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC), West Palaearctic Regional Section (WPRS). The tests were conducted by 32 members in 12 countries according to internationally approved guidelines.The microbial insecticides Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki (Delfin), B. thuringiensis…

Assessment of Toxicity Risk of Insecticides used in Rice Ecosystem on Trichogramma japonicum, an Egg Parasitoid of Rice Lepidopterans
TLDR
The toxicity of commonly used insecticides on a biological control agent, Trichogramma japonicum Ahmead, is assessed by using a dry film residue method and risk quotient analysis showed that phenylpyrazoles, pyrethroids, insect growth regulators, neonicotinoids, and antibiotics are classified as safe agents to the parasitoid.
Toxicity of pesticides used in the integrated production of apple on Trichogramma pretiosum Riley, 1879 (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) under laboratory conditions.
TLDR
The residual effect of pesticides recommended by the Integrated Production of Apple (IPA) was evaluated under laboratory conditions, through direct application of pesticides on eggs of Anagasta kuehniella containing the immature stages egg-larva, pre-pupa and pupa of Trichogramma pretiosum Riley, 1879.
Effect of emamectin benzoate under semi-field and field conditions on key predatory biological control agents used in vegetable greenhouses
TLDR
Emamectin benzoate at the highest recommended concentration was compatible with A. swirskii and O. laevigatus when applied 3 days before the introduction of the arthropods, but it was toxic when directly sprayed.
Residual Effect of Pesticides used in Integrated Apple Production on Chrysoperlaexterna (Hagen) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) Larvae
TLDR
Evaluating the effects of the abamectin, carbaryl, fenitrothion, methidathion, sulfur, and trichlorfon pesticides on the survival and stage length of larvae and pupae, adult oviposition from treated larvae, and hatched eggs of two Chrysoperla externa populations found them to be harmful.
[Toxicity of pesticides recommended in the integrated apple production (IAP) to populations of Chrysoperla externa (Hagen) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)].
TLDR
None of the evaluated pesticides affected the egg viability of the C. externa populations studied, but abamectin and carbaryl caused significant mortality of other developmental stages of the predator.
Evaluation of persistence and relative toxicity of some pest control products to adults of two native trichogrammatid species in Kenya
TLDR
The study was an attempt to adopt the methodologies of the IOBC (International Organization for Biological Control) on non-target risk assessment for pest control products to cater for the local needs of integrating the use of the trichogrammatids along with other pest control Products.
Effect of reduced risk pesticides for use in greenhouse vegetable production on Bombus impatiens (Hymenoptera: Apidae).
TLDR
It is concluded that the new reduced risk insecticides metaflumizone and chlorantraniliprole and the fungicides myclobutanil, potassium bicarbonate and cyprodinil + fludioxonil are safe for greenhouse use in the presence of bumble bees.
Evaluating the selectivity of registered fungicides for soybean against Trichogramma pretiosum Riley, 1879(Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae).
TLDR
It is found that fungicides are classified in different classes of selectivity to adults of T. pretiosum regarding the tested fungicides.
Safety assessment of selected biopesticides and botanicals on Trichogramma spp. (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) in fields
TLDR
All the biopesticides/botanicals tested at varied doses against adult emergence of the Trichogramma spp were harmless to slightly harmful, though negative relationship between dose and the emergence was observed, and the surviving individuals showed the same oviposition ability resulting in successful parasitism.
Non-target effects of Metarhizium brunneum (BIPESCO 5/F 52) in soil show that this fungus varies between being compatible with, or moderately harmful to, four predatory arthropods
TLDR
The non-target effects of the microbial biological control agent Metarhizium brunneum applied in soil on four different predatory arthropods, representing different classes of arthropod and different insect orders, are assessed.

Results of a joint pesticide test programme by the Working Group: Pesticides and Beneficial Arthropods
TLDR
The side effect of 20 commercial pesticides on 6 different beneficial arthropods was tested by members of the IOBC/WPRS Working Group “Pesticides and Beneficial Arthropods” in 3 countries and it is hoped that the results would help other WPRS working groups and plant protection advisers in the development of rational control programmes.
Standard methods to test the side‐effects of pesticides on natural enemies of insects and mites developed by the IOBC/WPRS Working Group ‘Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms’
TLDR
A combination of laboratory, semi-field and field tests is needed to show the side-effects of pesticides on beneficial organisms and that the beneficials chosen for the test should be relevant to the crop on which the pesticide is to be used.

Results are presented of laboratory, semi‐field and field tests to assess the side effects of pesticides on beneficial organisms obtained during the third testing programme of the Working Group
Results of the fourth joint pesticide testing programme carried out by the IOBC/WPRS‐Working Group “Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms”
TLDR
Although nearly all the insecticides tested were harmful to most of the beneficial insects tested, especially in the first test, few of them were shown to be less harmful or less persistent in further testing.

Laboratory method for testing side-effects of pesticides on the rove beetleAleochara bilineata — Adults
TLDR
Generally, insecticides/acaricides had a pronounced effect on the beetles whereas fungicides and herbicides were less detrimental while Prosevor 85 was highly detrimental while Cycocel Extra and Rhodofix had no effects.
