The silverleaf whitefly, Bemisia argentifolii Bellows & Perring [also known as biotype B of the sweetpotato whitefly, B. tabaci (Gennadius)], is a key pest of tomato in southern Florida. Most damage by the whitefly is inflicted indirectly through the transmission of plant viruses, the most damaging of which is Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV). Trap crops may be one means of reducing whitefly populations and TYLCV incidence in tomato. Because squash is more attractive to whitefly adults… Expand
Trap Cropping System to Suppress Stink Bugs in the Southern Coastal Plain
ADDITIONAL INDEX WORDS. sorghum, millet, buckwheat, sunflower, triticale, beneficials A trap cropping system was developed to manage the stink and leaffooted bug pests in the southern coastal plainExpand
Evaluation of barrier plants for the cultural control of tomato yellow leaf curl disease
TLDR
screen candidates for potential barrier plants to control tomato yellow leaf curl Thailand virus and examine whether prefeeding on these plants can reduce the virus titer in its vector, Bemisia tabaci, thus reducing TYLCTHV transmission, revealed that nonviruliferous whiteflies preferred cucumber and okra to tomato, whereas viruliferously whiteflies prefer cucumber to tomato. Expand
Management of whitefly-transmitted viruses in open-field production systems.
TLDR
Resistance combined with selected IPM strategies could become a viable means to increase yields in crops produced in open fields despite the presence of whitefly-transmitted viruses. Expand
Sweet pepper confirmed as a reservoir host for tomato yellow leaf curl virus by both agro-inoculation and whitefly-mediated
TLDR
Whitefly- mediated inoculation experiments showed that TYLCV can be transmitted to tomatoes from TYLCVs-infected sweet peppers, indicating that sweet pepper can be a reservoir for TY LCV in nature. Expand
Detection and molecular characterization of viruses associated with tomato yellow leaf curl disease in cucurbit crops in Jordan
TLDR
Results of semi-quantitative PCR (sqPCR) analysis showed that the relative amount of TYLCV-Mld DNA acquired by B. tabaci from cucumber plants was less than that acquired from tomato plants, indicating that all infected tomato plants remained symptomless. Expand
Sweet pepper confirmed as a reservoir host for tomato yellow leaf curl virus by both agro-inoculation and whitefly-mediated inoculation
TLDR
Whitefly-mediated inoculation experiments showed that TYLCV can be transmitted to tomatoes from TYLCv-infected sweet peppers, and results indicate that sweet pepper can be a reservoir forTYLCV in nature. Expand
Effect of host experience of the greenhouse whitefly, Trialeurodes vaporariorum, on trap cropping effectiveness
TLDR
It is found that the trap cropping consistently resulted in a decrease in the density of the poinsettia‐strain whiteflies on the cash crop compared to that in monoculture, however, higher adult whitefly survivorship on eggplant than on poinsettsia could compromise its effectiveness as a trap crop in poinsetia. Expand
Avoidance of natural enemies by adult whiteflies, Bemisia argentifolii, and effects on host plant choice
TLDR
Predator avoidance behavior by adult whiteflies should be investigated further in the context of trap cropping and other crop-habitat alterations designed to help manage whitefly abundance. Expand
Attraction of Trialeurodes vaporariorum and Bemisia argentifolii to eggplant, and its potential as a trap crop for whitefly management on greenhouse poinsettia
TLDR
In a greenhouse experiment, eggplant did not affect either the spatial distribution or density of adult B. argentifolii on poinsettias, but attraction to eggplant might be useful as a trap crop system when whitefly mortality on the main crop is not high. Expand
Bemisia tabaci on Vegetables in the Southern United States: Incidence, Impact, and Management
TLDR
The sweetpotato whitefly is now regarded as one of the most destructive insect pests in vegetable production systems in the Southern United States, and integrated pest management tactics are warranted, including cultural control by manipulation of production practices, resistant vegetable varieties, biological control using various natural enemies, and the judicious use of insecticides.

Viral diseases causing the greatest economic losses to the tomato crop. II. The Tomato yellow leaf curl virus — a review
TLDR
An updated review of these new approaches on virus transmission, molecular biology, variability, diagnostic methods, and potential ways to control TYLCV will lead to a better understanding of the virus-vector-host relationships, key factors in the adoption of disease control measures. Expand
Preference of Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) for Selected Vegetable Hosts Relative to Tomato 1
TLDR
Squash is a better sink for white fly adults than tomato and could be useful as a trap crop by attracting and holding whitefly adults, thus keeping them from moving to tomato. Expand
Relationship of the sweetpotato whitefly to a new tomato fruit disorder in Florida
TLDR
A new disorder of fruit has been observed on tomato (Lycopersicon escu- lentum Mill.) in Florida and was associated with field populations of the sweetpotato whitefly and is char- acterized by incomplete ripening of longitudinal sections of fruit. Expand
Introduction of Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus in Florida and Implications for the Spread of This and Other Geminiviruses of Tomato.
TLDR
A number of regulatory procedures, as well as field management practices, were implemented in the 1997-98 production season to minimize the movement of TYLCV-Is within and out of the state. Expand
Response of Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) to Imidacloprid Under Greenhouse, Field, and Laboratory Conditions
TLDR
The systemic insecticide imidacloprid has been used successfully to manage Bemisia argentifolii Bellows & Perring and whitefly-borne geminivirus on tomato in south Florida and elsewhere and high application rates and persistence have combined to increase the likelihood of insecticide resistance.

Effect of Silver Reflective Mulch and a Summer Squash Trap Crop on Densities of Immature Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) on Organic Bean
TLDR
Polyethylene mulch with a reflective silver stripe and a yellow summer squash, Cucurbita pepo L., trap crop were tested alone and in combination as tactics to reduce densities of Bemisia argentifolii eggs and nymphs and incidence of bean golden mosaic geminivirus on snap bean. Expand
Epidemiology and control of tomato leaf curl virus in southern India
TLDR
Covering the tomato seedling nursery with nylon net for 25-30 d plus 4 sprays of monocrotophos at 10-d intervals after transplanting, delayed the spread of TLCV for 3-5 weeks and increased tomato yields. Expand
Host range of tomato mottle virus, a new geminivirus infecting tomato in Florida.
TLDR
A geminivirus causing mottling, upward leaf curling, and stunting was observed infecting tomatoes throughout production areas of Florida since 1989; and it has been named the tomato mottle virus (TMoV). Expand
Insecticidal control and resistance management for Bemisia tabaci
TLDR
Insecticide resistance management strategies based on the structured and restricted use of these new modes of action, and coupled with the use of cultural and biological pest management tactics, presently provides the best model for combating insecticide resistance in B. tabaci. Expand
