Field studies tested the use of lure-baited traps for female removal (FR) of codling moth, Cydia pomonella L. (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in apple, Malus domestica Borkhausen, treated with sex pheromone-based mating disruption (MD-FR). Four lures were evaluated, including the combination of (E,Z)‐2,4‐ethyl decadienoate (pear ester, PE), (E)‐4,8‐dime...

Seventeen trials were conducted using traps baited with kairomone‐based lures to evaluate female removal (FR) as an effective management tactic for codling moth, Cydia pomonella, L., in organic pear, Pyrus communis L., production in Italy and USA during 2019–2020. Studies included paired plots (0.4–1.4 ha) treated with or without 60 traps ha−1 in c...
Article
Brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, is native to Asia and has invaded North America and Europe inflicting serious agricultural damage to specialty and row crops. Tools to monitor the spread of H. halys include traps baited with the two-component aggregation pheromone (PHER), (3S,6S,7R,10S)-10,11-epoxy-1-bisabolen-3-ol and (3R,6S,7R,10S)-...

Nineteen host plant volatiles (HPVs) were screened for attractivity to adult codling moth Cydia pomonella (L.) as a fourth component of core blends (3K) including (E,Z)‐2,4‐ethyl decadienoate, (E)‐4,8‐dimethyl‐1,3,7‐nonatriene and acetic acid. Each new quaternary combination was compared with a previously reported attractive bisexual lure (4K), con...

BACKGROUND Captures of codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), in traps are used to establish action thresholds and time insecticide sprays. The need for frequent trap inspections in often remote orchards has created a niche for remote sensing smart traps. A smart trap baited with a 5‐component pheromone‐kairomone blend was evaluated for codling moth m...

The brown marmorated stink bug Halyomorpha halys is an invasive agricultural pest with a worldwide distribution. Classical biological control has been identified as the most promising method to reduce the populations of H. halys. Adventive populations of two candidates for releases, Trissolcus japonicus and Trissolcus mitsukurii, have recently been...

Integrated pest management relies on insect pest monitoring to support the decision of counteracting a given level of infestation and to select the adequate control method. The classic monitoring approach of insect pests is based on placing in single infested areas a series of traps that are checked by human operators on a temporal basis. This stra...

Studies were conducted during the period 2019/2020 to evaluate the effectiveness of four lures for codling moth (Cydia pomonella L.) in pome fruits in Italy and the USA. Multi-component blends of sex pheromone ((E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol, PH), pear ester ((E,Z)-2,4-ethyl decadienoate, PE), (E)-4,8-dimethyl-1,3,7-nonatriene (DMNT), and pyranoid lina...

Aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of powder milk and whey, which is included among the basic substances against grapevine powdery mildew. Two field trials were carried out in a commercial vineyard located in Tebano di Faenza (RA) over two-year period 2018-2019. The study consisted of repeated applications of the tested products at 6-8...

Semi-field and field trials were carried out in 2017-2019 to verify the preventive and curative activity of boric acid for the control of primary and secondary infections of Venturia inaequalis on apple. The semi-field trials were carried out on potted apple plants cv Fuji exposed in the field to receive the natural inoculum of V. inaequalis, perfo...

Monitoring oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta Busck (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), populations based on counts in sex pheromone-baited traps within sex pheromone-treated orchards for mating disruption (MD) is challenging since male orientation to traps is disrupted. In this study, we evaluated a new commercial pheromone–kairomone combination lure...

pice o dal bordo si estendono verso la base, fi no a occupare anche l'intera lamina fogliare. Sui frutti i sintomi si manifestano come piccole lesioni necrotiche localiz-zate sulla porzione del frutto più espo-sta alla luce oppure localizzate nella zona calicina del frutto stesso. Si tratta inizialmente di macchie brune super-fi ciali del diametro...
Article
Male and female moth catches of Grapholita molesta (Busck) in traps were evaluated in stone and pome fruit orchards untreated or treated with sex pheromones for mating disruption in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, USA, and Italy from 2015 to 2017. Trials evaluated various blends loaded into either membrane cup lures or septa. Membrane lures were loaded...
