De Jesus Ortega-Estrada, - - 2012
Infective juveniles (IJs) of an entomopathogenic nematode strain native to southern Mexico transported an associated bacterium that turned the infected Galleria mellonella (L) larvae reddish. The nematode isolate (LBIN-1) was identified as Steinernema carpocapsae (Filipjev) by ITS sequence, and its associated bacterium (LBSe-17) as Serratia marcescens Bizio by 16S rDNA ...

Since it was first formally recorded there in 2005, the Nearctic pine tortoise scale Toumeyella parvicornis (Cockerell) (Hemiptera: Coccidae) has caused severe decline of the Caribbean pine, Pinus caribaea var. bahamensis (Grisebach) W. H. Barrett & Golfari, in the pine forests on the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI). The scale ...

The corn leafhopper, Dalbulus maidis (DeLong & Wolcott), is one of the most important pests of maize in Latin America because of its efficiency as a vector of 3 species of plant pathogens. In spite of its significance, however, little is known about its egg parasitoids. In this study, we ...

Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Ashmead) is a larval-prepupal endoparasitoid of tephritid fruit fly pests in tropical and subtropical countries. Because citrus-growing areas of northern Argentina are the most affected by Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann), D. longicaudata presents as a potential candidate for augmentative releases against it. Within this context, parasitoid rearing must be ...

Biotype B of the sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius), is a worldwide pest of many agronomic and horticultural crops, including tomato. Extensive pesticide use targeting this pest has led to the development of resistance to every major class of insecticides. The baseline toxicity of spiromesifen was established for laboratory susceptible ...

The pink hibiscus mealybug, Maconellicoccus hirsutus Green, is a widespread invasive pest of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis in Florida and elsewhere. We evaluated 3 cultivars of H. rosa-sinensis expected to have high ('President'), low ('Double Red'), and intermediate ('Joanne') levels of susceptibility to this pest. We found little evidence that M. hirsutus ...

The objective of this research was to describe the anal plates of the larval stages of the ephydrid fly, Hydrellia pakistanae Deonier, a biological control agent of hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle). This was accomplished using light microscopy coupled with a specialized staining technique; and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). All ...

The western drywood termite, Incisitermes minor (Hagen) and the light southern drywood termite I. snyderi (Light) are common drywood termites in southwestern and the southern United States, respectively. Despite the economic importance of these 2 species, no information exists on the mitochondrial genetic diversity of I. minor and I. snyderi. ...

Mole crickets (Orthoptera: Gryllotalpidae) are among the most economically important turfgrass insect pests in the southeastern United States. The tawny mole cricket Scapteriscus vicinus (Scudder) causes damage by feeding on the roots and shoots of turfgrass and by creating surface tunnels. Previous research on mole cricket control showed behavior modification, ...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the interaction of Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Ashmead) parasitism and the toxicity of neem seed cake (NSC) on survival of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), the Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly). Groups of 1600-1700 third instar C. capitata larvae were each wrapped in organdy cloth ("unit of ...

In the framework of a biological control program with hymenopteran parasitoids to reduce the population densities of the bean weevil, Acanthoscelides obtectus (Say), and the Mexican bean weevil, Zabrotes subfasciatus (Boheman), that attack bean seeds in storage facilities in central Mexico, the parasitoid, Uscana espinae Girault (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae), was collected. ...

The parasitoid fly Ormia ochracea acoustically stalks signaling male field crickets and lays live larvae on and around them. Ormia ochracea have been observed to acoustically stalk various cricket species. In Texas the natural host of this fly is Gryllus texensis (Orthoptera: Gryllidae). Two larger potential gryllid hosts, Gryllus assimilis ...

We examined plant used versus plant availability by a thysanopteran community on 13 woody and perennial native plants in the Chihuahua Desert. Individual plants were sampled with sticky-traps on 8 dates from May 1997 to August 1998. We sampled 5,040 adult thrips from 26 species in 19 genera, of which ...

Efforts to monitor and detect tephritid fruit flies in the genus Anastrepha currently involve MultiLure traps baited with two food-based synthetic attractants, ammonia (typically formulated as ammonium acetate or ammonium bicarbonate) and putrescine (1,4-diaminobutane). These baits are used in Central America, Florida, Texas, and the Caribbean to target/ capture economically ...

A new species, Lymantria (Nyctria) furvinis H. Wang, Kishida and M. Wang sp. nov., is described from Guangdong Nanling National Nature Reserve, South China. The new species can be distinguished from all previously described species by the basal area on the forewing yellow with black spots, valve with a transverse ...

A 10-port manifold was developed for the injection of insecticides into a drip irrigation system for small plot bell pepper research trials. A 179.1 metric ft lb/s positive displacement Aquaflow[R] electric chemical metering pump was used to transfer liquid chemical treatments from an 18.9 liter polyethylene bottle through a 10-valve ...
Low, Candace - - 2012
This study tested the sensitivity of the tupelo leafminer, Antispila nysaefoliella, to vibrational cues and whether their unique behaviors, first reported by Low (2008), may be elicited by the frequencies matching those of parasitic wasps. In the tick behavior, a larva ticks its abdomen back and forth rhythmically, and in ...

Antennal sensilla were compared in parthenogenetic females and bisexual adults of rice water weevil, Lissorhoptrus oryzophilus Kuschel (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), using scanning electron micrographs. The antenna of parthenogenetic females and of both sexes of bisexual reproductive weevils consisted of the scape, pedicel, and 6 flagellar segments. Females, regardless of mode of ...

Trichogramma fuentesi Torre was identified attacking Cactoblastis cactorum (Berg), a serious pest of Opuntia spp. in North America, raising the possibility of using this egg parasitoid as an inundative biological control agent. Studies were conducted to assess the biological parameters of this parasitoid under laboratory conditions. Nutritive quality influence of ...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic multisystem disease of unknown cause which affects approximately 1% of the population. The typical characteristic of RA is persistent inflammatory synovitis which usually involves peripheral joints in a symmetric distribution. Systemic involvements of RA include pericarditis, pleuritis, vasculitis, entrapment neuropathy, interstitial lung disease and ...
