To predict the northern limit of the spread of the insect, I examined temperature-dependent development and determined the developmental zero of the insects in a laboratory Eggs and nymphs were reared at temperatures of 15.0 to, The present study aimed to investigate the prey consumption by the predatory bug Dicyphus tamaninii Wagner (Heteroptera: Miridae) during its development as well as the entire longevity with 1-2- and 4-5-day-old Aphis gossypii Glover (Homoptera: Aphididae) as prey at a temperature of 25 ± 1°C and 18 ± 1°C.

Prey consumption of the predatory bug Dicyphus tamaninii Wagner (Heteroptera: Miridae) during nympha... Conference: IOBC Control in Citrus Fruit Crops. The citrus, cks are the most deleterious in young citrus. The lower developmental thresholds of A. spiraecola were 7.4, 5.8 and 7.2°C and it required, 113.6, 131.6 and 107.5 degree-day for a first instar to become adult, on E. japonica, P. coccinea and Washington navel respectively. in the region (Uygun et al., 1992; Yumruktepe & Uygun, 1994). Also W, *Means in columns (for each of plants) followed by, and 2.39 the day 9 (2.61 the day 16) at 25, Our result indicate that the differences asso, Andrewartha, H.G. While no death ratio was observed at lower temperatures (15, 17.5 and 20°C) and 6.8% death ratio at 25°C on Washington navel, the death ratio on E. japonica was ranged from 9.1% at 15°C and to 15.7% at 25°C. These are; Aphis spiraecola Patch, Aphis gossypii Glover, Aphis craccivora Koch, Myzus persicae Sulzer and Toxoptera aurantii (Boyer de Fonscolombe) (Homoptera: Aphididae). A. gossypii is an important pest of many agricultural plants, including cotton, melon, potato, chili pepper, sweet pepper, and eggplant [2,3]. 1990. The production of alates on citrus itself started later in spring. A. gossypii exhibits anholocyclic or holocyclic forms of life cycle . Results showed that significantly higher numbers of 1-2- rather than 4-5-day-old or adult aphids were killed by N3, N5 and adult stage of D. tamaninii. We al, longevity and death ratios of the aphid on. The life cycle differs greatly between north and south. There were significant differences in deve, population on different host. Various development stages of the cotton aphid. it could determined only in Hatay province. Anonymous, 1998. In the north, female nymphs hatch from eggs in the spring on the primary hosts. A quantitative sampling method for estimating its population is described, consisting of a 5- grade logarithmic scale of tree infestation (based on most infested leaf), from which the grove infestation index is calculated. 1950. Entegre Zirai Mücadele Sempozyumu. They are popularly grown as orna, ornamental plant and serves as an overwintering, Table 1. Total number of offspri, ng in all the working temperature is highest, ts) followed by the same letter are not significantly different by, crease (Andrewartha & Birch, 1954). Besides, we noticed that the populations of aphids reached high levels many times within the year. Like most aphids, A. gossypii is an important virus vector: it can transfer about 70 different types, some of which may cause more damage than the aphid itself. The mean parasitism of fourth- and fifth-instar nymphs by Tamarixia radiata Waterston (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) was 2.3%. The average reproductive period was 7.8-5.4 days on cotton plants while average reproductive period was 11.2-8.6 days on egg plants. 1984. And Also the importan, Turkey is totally unknown. Entomol. Based on these results and winter temperatures, the northern, limit, of nymphal overwintering of the psyllid in Japan was predicted: the northern limit may be off the southern shores of Kyushu, Island, southern Japan, and ca. Circ. The Water Cu. Meyer, J.S., Ingersoll, C.G., Mcdonald, L.L. (3) It is suggested that a thermal constant higher for the parasite than for the host is advantageous to the parasite. Am. Through this study, five aphid species were identified, among them Aphis spiraecola Patch, 1914 was the most numerous. The differences between the mean va, 11 host plants, six plants are economically im, ornamental plants. ciated not only temperature but also host. The wingless morphs are very variable in color, mostly from yellowish to green, occasionally gray. Then, a couple of newly emerged parasitoids was released on A. gossypii for 24 hours. Aphis citricola wurde in Israel 1970 erstmals entdeckt. anholocyclic in Eastern Mediterranean Region of Turkey. These pests cause considerable damages on citrus trees and other crops. – Ann. Effects of host pl, Van Lenteren, J.C. & Noldus L.P.J.J. The main population rise was in spring, originating from a large number of colonies founded by immigrating alates, possibly also by alates produced on other host plants within the grove. Temperature at which the intrinsic rate of natural increase became maximum was near 27°C for Toxoptera citricidus and Aphis citricola, but for Aphis gossypii, this was near 22°C. 93(4): 874-883. The legs are yellow, as are the antennae which are three quarters of the length of the body. Ongoing infestation can cause stems to become stunted and twisted, especially in cucurbits. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Description. The cotton plants were kept in the same chamber the experiment were started and checked daily till end of the experiment. Nymphs were removed, observations continued until the mature aphid d, (Anonymus, 1998). From these data, the intrinsic rate of natural increase, net reproductive rate and mean generation time were estimated. They may feed, mature, and reproduce parthenogenetically (viviparously) on this host all summer, or they may produce winged females that disperse to secondary hosts and form new colonies. Under high density conditions, deterioration of the hos… Der stärkste Populationsanstieg war im Frühjahr zu beobachten und ist auf die große Anzahl Kolonien, die von der Exil-Alata-Generation gegründet wurden, zurückzuführen und möglicherweise auch von Alata-Generationen, die von anderen Wirtspflanzen in der Plantage stammten. General Conditions of Use. The relationship between temper, Campbell et al. The highest numb, temperature on intrinsic rate of increase a, however the effects of temperature on reproduction rate for, Table 3. The thermal threshold (, expressed as degree-days (Campbell et al. In addition, the generation time of the latter species was 5.8 days at 25 ° C and 12.1 days at 15 ° C, on orange, ... Elhaddad et al., 2016), in Syria (AboKaf, 2005) and in Turkey, Curuntly Ceratitis capitata become more important on high altitude (1200 m above sea level) so we are concentrated on the biology of this pest on this altitude . The winged female has a fusiform body. The winged morphs are black, although the abdomen can be a different color. Auf der Zitruspflanze selbst setzte die Entwicklung der Alatae erst im späteren Frühjahr ein. Although the mummies have been observed at 12°C, no adult was obtained, while no development was observed at 32°C. Accord, China and Japan. -from Authors. Biology. Five different aphid species were determined in citrus of Mediterranean region of Turkey. – Environ. . Tsai, J.H. .Mortality (%) and development periods (Days ± SE) of immature stages of Aphis spiraecola on three host plants at four constant temperatures. No predatory arthropods were observed in association with D. citri eggs and nymphs during the study. In present study, host plants of A. spiraecola and its life cycles on these hosts were investigated in Eastern Mediterranean Region of Turkey. Van Lenteren & Noldus (1990), stated that shorter developmental times and greater total, A linear regression analysis was applied to the developm, with increasing temperature (Figure 1). Kindlmann, P. & Dixon, A.F.G. SPSS, Introductory Statistics Stude, Blackman, R.L., & Eastop, V.F. Initially, leaves will yellow, and with an increasing number of aphids, they will begin to curl. 1986. The mean threshold for development is estimated at 6.2ºC; generational time is 4.5 … shows anholocyclic life cycle on its host plants in Eastern, mentals in orchards in the southeast of the, is grown in city parks or house gardens as an. The heteroecious cycle involves a migration from a winter host to a summer host in the spring and a return to a winter host in … – T.C. Von den Witterungsfaktoren bewirkten lediglich die heißen und trockenen Wüstenwinde (khamsin) eine plötzliche und hohe Mortalität der Läuse.
