The objective of this study was to evaluate the abundance of termites and the perception of residents about those insects as pests. This study was conducted inside and in the surroundings of four houses in the neighbourhood Jardim Paraíso, in Cáceres, Mato Grosso. Inspections were carried out in March, May, August and November, 2004 and Febru...

O objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar o tipo de interação entre formigas e os cupins os quais habitam o mesmo ninho. Os experimentos foram de duas maneiras: A- para testar a relação de predação, os tratamentos usados foram: três formigas e um cupim, três formigas e três cupins, e três formigas e doze cupins; B- para testar a relação de proteção o...

The present study assessed the foraging activity of Mischocyttarus consimilis, through observations of 10 colonies from September 2007 to June 2008. The mean frequency of wasps foraging during the period of activity of the colony was 29.89% of the total number of individuals of the colony. The maximum value of 53.62% was reached at a combination of...

The cockroaches constitute a serious problem when they invade our residences. They are mechanical transmitters of pathogenic agents, such as: bacteria, fungus, helminths and protozoans. In this study, it was identified the species of domestic cockroaches found in five neighborhoods of Cáceres city (Mato Grosso, Brazil) in different times of the yea...

... Also, in the treatment with 50% of the water deficit, some of the evaluated leaves' yellowing was observed. Dutra et al. (2012) obtained results similar to garlic when studying sunflower during water stress, where the chlorophyll content of plant leaves was limited due to the low availability of water. This finding can be understood since chlorophylls are physiological state indicators of plants, essential to their growth and adaptation to the most varied environments (ARAÚJO, 2011). ...
... The differences between these chemical signals in the cuticle of the two castes are directly related to the physiological and behavioral differences. The queens differ from the workers in the ovarian activity and in the repertoire of tasks realizing in the colony (Billen & Morgan, 1998) food solicitation and oviposition realized by the queens, adultadult trofhallaxis, alarm, foraging realized by the workers, so the queens remain more time in the nest developing the activities of dominance hierarchy and oviposition while the workers were engaged in maintenance activities, defense and success of the colonies (Montagna et al., 2009;Torres et al., 2012). Sledge (2001) noted that when removed the dominant females of P. dominula colonies, the subordinate assumed this position and, consequently, had changes in their ovarian developing and in their cuticular hydrocarbons what became similar to those removed, whose chemical profiles were rich in alkanes and metyl-alkanes. ...
... A ocorrência de pragas em ambientes domiciliares ou áreas urbanas pode causar problemas de saúde pública ou prejuízos econômicos. Dentre os organismos comumente considerados como pragas no município de Cáceres -MT estão: aranhas, baratas, carrapatos, cupins, escorpiões, formigas, moscas, mosquitos, pombos e ratos (RIEDER, 1987;DUTRA et al., 2007;SANTOS et al., 2014). A proliferação desses organismos nos ambientes muitas vezes está associada à falta de saneamento básico ou fatores biológicos como ausência de competidores, potencial de infestação de cada espécie ou locais para nidificação ou abrigo (WALLER; LA FAGE, 1986;CONSTANTINO;DIANESE, 2001). ...
... Foi observada a presença de diplópodas e de formigas, além de aranhas e uma 'cuíca' (Cavea aperea) com filhotes. A literatura comenta a ocorrência de vários organismos que se 'utilizam' dos montículos como inquilinos ou predadores, principalmente no que diz respeito às formigas (Cunha & Morais, 2010;Costa et al., 2009;Sarcinelli et al., 2009;Dutra & Galbiati, 2009;Redford, 1984). Redford (1984) estudou o papel dos termiteiros de Cornitermes cumulans na ecologia do cerrado brasileiro e considerou que essa espécie seja uma 'espécie-chave' , pois, uma vez eliminados, poderia ocorrer uma série de extinções locais, já que seus montículos são habitados por pelo menos 17 espécies de outros cupins e dez espécies de formigas, e de outros inquilinos; esses montículos são também utilizados por animais, como os tatus, que são grandes consumidores de cupins. ...
