Abstract

A potent male attractant of sweetpotato weevil helps in monitoring and control of sweetpotato weevil in many production areas around the world. At present, it has not been used in Malaysia. Cost of the components of a trapping system is a major constraint in the adoption of male lure-baited...

Abstract

The BIOCAT2010 (corrected) database of introductions of insects used as classical biological control agents (BCAs) against insects was analysed to recognise those introductions which involved a partially identified BCA, e.g. named to genus or family, but not to species. Quality controls made on a...

Abstract

Impact assessment protocols (i.e. scoring systems) for non-native species have been developed and implemented relatively recently, driven by an increasing demand for desk study approaches to screen and classify non-native species, considering their environmental and socio-economic impacts. While a...

Abstract

Anastatus bifasciatus (Geoffroy) is the most widespread native egg parasitoid of the invasive agricultural pest Halyomorpha halys (Stǻl) in Europe and considered as promising candidate for augmentative biological control. In this context, the parasitoid's reproductive parameters, longevity,...

Abstract

Seventy strains of Ralstonia solanacearum from solanaceous crops in Myanmar were molecularly characterized by rep-PCR DNA fingerprinting. Cluster analysis based on the fingerprints (total 33 fingerprint types) revealed seven main clusters at 80% similarity level. Strains in phylotype I showed 29...

Abstract

The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stǻl), native to East Asia, emerged as an invasive pest in Europe in the 2000s. In its native range, Trissolcus japonicus (Ashmead) is the dominant egg parasitoid of H. halys, and thus it has been considered for classical biological control in...

Abstract

Following introduction of Halyomorpha halys in Europe and North America, a concerted effort has been made to characterize host-parasitoid interactions involving H. halys. Yet, it is unclear whether the reported low parasitism in the field is due to the rejection of H. halys by native parasitoids,...
