Article
Full-text available
A year-long flight phenology study was undertaken from 15 July 2009 to 7 July 2010 in central and southeastern Louisiana to estimate the temporal flight patterns of the three southeastern Ips species: Ips grandicollis (Eichhoff), Ips avulsus (Eichhoff), and Ips calligraphus (Germar) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) as well as some of their p...
Article
Full-text available
The southern pine bark beetle guild (SPBG) is arguably the most destructive group of forest insects in the southeastern USA. This guild contains five species of bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae): Dendroctonus frontalis, Dendroctonus terebrans, Ips avulsus, Ips calligraphus, and Ips grandicollis. A diverse community of illicit rec...
Article
Insects possess a variety of defenses against natural enemies including physical attack, chemical repellency, physiological suppression, and visual camouflage. The hypothesis that wax production by the whitefly Aleurodicus dugesii Cockerell (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) functions as a defense against natural enemies was tested using two parasitoid speci...
Article
Full-text available
Encarsia formosa Gahan (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) is a small, parasitoid wasp that attacks several species of whiteflies. It is one of the most commercialized natural enemies and used worldwide in controlled production systems (greenhouses and nurseries) for biological control of whiteflies on ornamentals and vegetables (Hoddle et al. 1998). The ea...
Article
Full-text available
Encarsia sophia Girault and Dodd (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) is a small parasitic wasp used to control multiple whitefly pests including Trialeurodes vaporarium Westwood (greenhouse whitefly), Bemisia tabaci Gennadius (silverleaf whitefly), and T. variabilis Quaintance (papaya whitefly). Because E. sophia possesses high reproductive capacity and is...
Article
The effects of rearing temperature and host stage parasitized on the development of three parasitoid species; Encarsia noyesi Hayat (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae), Idioporus affinis LaSalle & Polaszek (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), and Entedononecremnus krauteri Zolnerowich & Rose (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) were investigated. These parasitoids are part of...
Article
Full-text available
The chilli thrips, Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood, is a recently established pest in the USA and poses a serious risk to many economically important ornamental and food crops. In this study the biological control potential of the phytoseiid mites Amblydromalus limoni-cus (Garman and McGregor) and Amblyseius swirskii (Athias-Henriot) was compared by exa...
Article
The invasive giant whitefly Aleurodicus dugesii Cockerell (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), a pest of many important crops and ornamentals, has established throughout southern California, USA. The parasitoids Encarsia noyesi Hayat (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae), Idioporous affinis LaSalle and Polaszek (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), and Entedononecremnus krauteri...
Article
Full-text available
The invasive giant whitefly Aleurodicus dugesii Cockerell (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) is a pest of over 300 plants species in the United States, many of which are economically important ornamentals and crops. Development and survival of A. dugesii was assessed at seven constant temperatures ranging from 10 to 35°C to provide a basis for phenological f...
Article
Parasitoid wasps released as biological control agents may experience strong interspecific competition, which can lead to a reduction in pest control. The effects of competition can be mitigated if niche partitioning exists between species, such as parasitism preferences for different host stages. We examined host stage preferences for the parasito...
Conference Paper
When multiple conspecific or heterospecific parasitoid females parasitize the same host, intense larval (intrinsic) competition can occur. Because parasitoids are widely used as control agents for many economically important pest species, a significant effort has gone into elucidating the form, function, and outcome of competitive interactions betw...
Conference Paper
The southern pine beetle guild (SPBG) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) is arguably the most destructive group of forest pests in the Southeastern United States. Larvae of the wood borer associate Monochamus titillator (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) have been hypothesized to be facultative intraguild predators of the SPBG. In this study we t...
