The spider mite Panonychus ulmi (P. ulmi) is one of the most important pests of apple plantations. Studies suggested that spider mite Neoseiulus californicus (N. californicus) is able to control spider mite P. Ulmi, ...
Effect of Low-Temperature Storage on Diaeretiella rapae (McIntosh) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
We evaluated the effects of constant low-temperature storage on Diaeretiella rapae (McIntosh) (Braconidae, Aphidiinae). Diaeretiella rapae mummies were stored at 5 ± 1°C for 0-36 days. The percentage of D. rapae emergence ...
Biological control of Bradysia matogrossensis (Diptera : Sciaridae) in mushroom cultivation with predatory mites
Larvae of Sciaridae flies (Diptera) cause considerable damage to the mushroom Agaricus blazei (Murrill) ss. Heinemann in Brazil. Brazilian growers have had considerable difficulties in controlling this pest. The objective ...
Effect of air humidity on the egg viability of predatory mites (Acari: Phytoseiidae, Stigmaeidae) common on rubber trees in Brazil
Rubber pest mites, Calacarus heveae and Tenuipalpus heveae, reach economic damage levels at the end of the rainy season and the beginning of the dry season in Brazil. Therefore, low humidity adaptation might be an important ...
Effects of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide on the biological control of coffee leaf rust under controlled conditions
The effect of elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration on biological control of coffee leaf rust, caused by Hemileia vastatrix, was evaluated by leaf disc assay, under controlled conditions. The biocontrol agents Bacillus ...
