Evidence for Potential of Managing Some African Fruit Fly Species (Diptera: Tephritidae) Using the Mango Fruit Fly Host-Marking Pheromone
(JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC ENTOMOLOGY, 2012-12)
We investigated conspecific and heterospecific oviposition host discrimination among four economically important fruit fly pests of mango in Africa (Ceratitis capitata, Wiedemann; C. fasciventris, Bezzi; C. rosa, Karsch, ...
Species Composition, Distribution, and Seasonal Abundance of Liriomyza Leafminers (Diptera: Agromyzidae) Under Different Vegetable Production Systems and Agroecological Zones in Kenya
(Environmental Entomology, 2015-02-03)
A longitudinal study to identify the species of Liriomyza leafminer, their distribution, relative abundance, and seasonal variation, including their host range, was conducted in vegetable fields at three altitudes in Kenya ...
Compatibility of Metarhizium anisopliae isolate ICIPE 69 with agrochemicals used in French bean production
(Journal of Pest Management, 2012-04)
The compatibility of the Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin isolate ICIPE 69, which is being developed as a biopesticide for the control of Frankliniella occidentalis Pergande, was assessed under laboratory ...
Interaction between Phaedrotoma scabriventris Nixon and Opius dissitus Muesebeck (Hymenoptera: Braconidae): endoparasitoids of Liriomyza leafminer
(African Entomology, 2015)
The exotic parasitoid, Phaedrotoma scabriventris Nixon, was imported from Peru for the biological control of invasive Liriomyza species in vegetable and ornamental crops in Kenya where Opius dissitus Muesebeck is the most ...
Relationship between virulence and repellency of entomopathogenic isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana to the termite Macrotermes michaelseni
(Journal of Insect Physiology, 2009)
Termites encounter a diverse array of potentially useful and harmful fungi in their subterranean habitats. These vary from symbiotic to harmful species with varying levels of virulence. How these hemiedaphic insects survive ...
Selection of promising fungal biological control agent of the western flower thrips Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande)
(Letters of Applied Microbiology, 2012-02)
Aims: Larval stages of Frankliniella occidentalis are known to be refractory to fungal infection compared with the adult stage. The objective of this study was to identify promising fungal isolate(s) for the control of ...
