Presencia de Spilostethus pandurus (Scopoli) (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae) en Venezuela, con datos sobre su biología

The milkweed bug Spilostethus pandurus (Scopoli, 1763) (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae) is reported for the first time in Venezuela and international trade of agricultural products appears to be considered as an important factor for global distribution of S. pandurus.

Insect fauna of pests and their natural enemies inhabiting sorghum-panicles in Egypt

Lepidopteran and hemipteran pests were the most dominant species-infested sorghum-panicles during the mature stages of the panicles and Spiders, coccinellids, and Orius spp.



Agricultural Insect Pests of the Tropics and Their Control.

The insect pests of the tropics and their control are studied in detail in order to establish a coherent picture of their distribution and patterns of activity.

Abundance of Sorghum Panicle-Feeding Bugs (Hemiptera: Miridae) in Mali and Empirical Relationships with Weather

In West and Central Africa, panicle-feeding mirid bugs, particularly Eurystylus oldi Poppius (Hemiptera: Miridae), are major pests of improved sorghum cultivars. Population dynamics of

Sorghum Grain Mold and the Influence of Head Bug Eurystylus oldi in West and Central Africa

The importance of grain mold and its relationship with head bugs in this sub-region is examined and suggestions for control of the disease are highlighted.

Indigenous host plants of sorghum head-bugs (Heteroptera: Miridae) in Mali

Les punaises sont recemment devenues des ravageurs importants du sorgho en Afrique de l'Ouest et particulierement au Mali ou cette cereale est la culture vivriere de base. Une recherche sur les

Species Composition and Injury to Sorghum by Panicle Feeding Bugs in Niger

Eurystylus marginatus Odhiambo (Hemiptera: Miridae) was the most important and abundant insect pest of sorghum panicles in Niger in 1985 and 1986. First generation adults initially infested sorghum

Alternate host plants of sorghum panicle-feeding bugs in southeast central Texas

Surveys conducted in commercial sorghum fields in south-eastern central Texas in 1979-80 revealed the presence of 5 species of panicle-feeding bugs; these were Oebalus pugnax (F.), Nezara viridula

Wild hosts of Pentatomids: ecological significance and role in their pest status on crops.

The knowledge of host plant sequences, including cultivated and uncultivated hosts, and the use of wild hosts as trap plants will improve management of pest species and future research should focus on determining which plants are preferably used by stink bugs.

Incidence and Distribution of the Sorghum Head Bug, Eurystylus Oldi Poppius (Heteroptera: Miridae) and Other Panicle Pests of Sorghum in West and Central Africa

It is proposed that future efforts in sorghum improvement for WCA should focus on developing cultivars with resistance to Sorghum head bugs, as well as other insect pests damaging sorghums in the areas surveyed.

Yield Loss-Density Relationships of Four Species of Panicle-Feeding Bugs in Sorghum

Regression analyses indicated that percent yield reductions increased quadratically as the number of rice stink bugs, southern green stink bug, conchuela stink bugs or leaffooted bugs increased per panicle, and economic injury levels for each species were calculated.
