Reproductive performance and mating behavior of the predatory bug, Anthocoris minki Dohrn, 1860 (Hemiptera: Anthocoridae)
Minki disilerinin uremesini ve yasam suresini olumsuz etkileyen ciftlesme sonrasi etkilesimlerinin anlasilip, uygun bir sekilde yonetildiginde bu boceklerin ekonomik ve genis capta uretilmesinin basarilabilecegi onermektedir.
Biological traits and prey consumption of Anthocoris minki fed on Agonoscena pistaciae and Brachycaudus (Thuleaphis) amygdalinus
The successful development and reproduction of both A. pistaciae and B. amygdalinus indicates that they are suitable prey for A. minki, while female predators consumed significantly more prey than males.
Potential Biological Control Agents of the Common Pistachio Psylla, Agonoscena pistaciae, a review
The present review is believed to be the first on A. pistaciae natural enemies and provides information towards understanding the potential of its biocontrol in Iran.
Effectiveness of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki on Thaumetopoea solitaria Frey. (Lepidoptera: Thaumetopoeidae) Larvae in Laboratory Conditions
This study was conducted to determine the effect of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki on the larvae of Thaumetopoea solitaria in the search for an alternative control method with minimal
Arthropod pests of pistachios, their natural enemies and management
The present article summarises the available information on pistachio pests, their natural enemies and management.
Initial study of rearing and release of Anthocoris minki Dohrn (Hemiptera: Anthocoridae) for biological control of Agonoscena pistaciae Burckhardt and Lauterer (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) in pistachio orchards.
The results of this initial study indicated that this predator species may be effective for biological control of A. pistaciae in pistachio orchards.
Overwintering insect (Arthropoda: Insecta) biodiversity in pistachio orchards of the Middle Euphrates Valley, Turkey
The results revealed that burlap sack and corrugated cardboard artificial winter shelters can be used to monitor harmful and beneficial insect fauna overwintering in fruit orchards.
Siirt İlinde Antepfıstığı Psillidi [Agonoscena pistaciae Burck. and Laut.) (Hemiptera: Aphalaridae)]'nın Yayılışı ve Populasyon Dinamiğinin Belirlenmesi
It was found that the population density of the nymph and egg of A. pistaciae increased slightly in late May and early June but its nymph, egg and adult population density was high from late August to mind November and it exceeded the economic loss threshold in many orchards.
Functional response of Oenopia conglobata contaminata (Coleoptera:Coccinellidae) to Agonoscena pistaciae (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) at two different temperatures
The results suggest that the efficiency of the Oenopia conglobata to control the pistachio psylla is high at 25 °C, and the predatory beetle O. conGLobata contaminata reacted to increasing temperature by enhanced search rate and activity.
Molecular and morphometric identification of pistachio psyllids with niche modeling of Agonoscena pistaciae (Hemiptera: Aphalaridae)
A geometric morphometric analysis showed that thedistance between landmark number 7 (bifurcation of vein M) to the fore margin of the forewing, and the distance between landmarks number 6 (apex of vein Cu1b) and 11 (wing base), are the most important geometric characters for diagnosing the studied species.
