The use of mirids and anthocorid bugs as polyphagous predators in greenhouse crops
Cristina Castañé, Nuria Agustí, Oscar Alomar

Abstract: Polyphagous predators have shown to be a viable solution for IPM programs in vegetable crops. In this paper advantages and disadvantages of using polyphagous predators are discussed. We also summarize existing experiences on the use of refuge plants to implement conservation programs. Recent experiences conducted by our group for the conservation of mirid and anthocorid bugs in tomato and lettuce Mediterranean crops are explained. The presence of refuge plants in the crop margins can increase the abundance of those polyphagous predators, advance their presence in the crop and facilitate their establishment, contributing to control crop pests, besides to be also beneficial to other neighbouring vegetable crops.

Managing invasive species in the greenhouse and nursery: A comprehensive systems approach
Michael P. Parrella

Abstract: The greenhouse and nursery industries in California face a major challenge with respect to managing multiple invasive species. This has lead to the development of an online tool that provides information on best management practices for each pest. Ideally, this online tool also recognizes where there is redundancy and overlap; i.e.; where one intervention may impact multiple pests. To date, no biological control strategy has been approved for control of invasive pests that are of quarantine significance, so most of the options available to the grower are chemical. To further improve any strategy that is implemented, a systems approach based on a hazard analysis of critical control points has been proposed as a method for growers to develop production practices that are more resilient to invasive species. In practice, this can lead to a better understanding of all aspects of production. Finally, research is ongoing to improve overall plan health through better management and understanding of the rhizobiome that may make the system refractory for invasive species. Each of these will be discussed.

The first cases of diamide-resistant Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) and the alternation of the insecticidal modes of action as a key IPM practice for sustainable control
Andrea Bassi, Emmanouil Roditakis, Wilbert G. Flier

Abstract: This paper reports on the sensitivity monitoring executed by DuPont and collaborators in Italy, Spain, Greece since 2009 in order to detect possible sensitivity shifts of T. absoluta from baseline sensitivity to the diamide insecticide chlorantraniliprole (MoA group 28). The results of the 2014 bioassays revealed the first cases of T. absoluta resistance to diamide insecticides in South-East Sicily. The resistant strains feature high resistance ratios vs. sensitive strains. Unpublished molecular and inheritance studies suggest target-site mutation as the likely resistance mechanism. On-farm interviews have highlighted consistent and widespread abuse of chlorantraniliprole-based products over the last 5-6 years, with growers not respecting product label directions for use and neglecting good agricultural practices including IPM. In this paper, potential integrated control strategies are discussed, aiming to prevent further directional selection of resistance alleles via the adoption of stringent IPM strategies inclusive of reasoned IRM/MoA alternation programmes.

User-friendly methodology for risk assessment of Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) in greenhouse rose production
Pedro Ferreira, Susana Machado, Susana M. P. Carvalho, Ana A. R. M. Aguiar

Abstract: Two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) is one of the most polyphagous arthropod herbivores and is a major pest in grenhouse roses. For a better control a method for estimating the risk of T. urticae in grenhouse roses is needed. An assay was carried in a grenhouse located in Northwest of Portugal, 138 terminal leaflets were hand-picked from the Rosa hybrida cv. “White Naomi” and cv. “Red Naomi” and observed at stereomicroscope. A scale was proposed and validated with 8040 field observations. The methodoly proposed consists in the observation of 20 terminal leaflets from maintenance layer, randomly chosen in each homogeneous greenhouse area, and a quick on site scoring of each leaflet in 0, 1 or 2, ((0) beeing pest absent, (1) the presence of 1 or 2 mobile forms or eggs and (2) the presence of 3 or more mobile forms or eggs). The comparation beetween the mean calculated and the proposed economic threshold (ET) = 1 defines the decision making in control. An easy to use and reliable methodoly and scale are proposed for T. urticae risk assessement in greenhouse roses.

Biological control of the red spider-mite in tomatoes under arid and semi-arid conditions in Israel
Amit Sade, Arnon Tabic, Arnon Allouche, Avi Preisler, Shimon Steinberg

Abstract: The red spider mite, Tetranychus urticae, is one of the most devastating polyphagous pests world-wide. In protected tomato cultivations in Israel it is the most difficult pest to control due to its rapid development of resistance to acaricides. Climatic conditions of the main cultivation area are favourable for mite development year round. The common practice of tomato growers is to spray every 7-10 days using different chemicals to control spider mites, yet in many plots significant damage and loss of yield is recorded. Here we report on implementation of biologically-based IPM program which involves weekly scouting and releases of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis Athias-Henriot (Acari: Phytoseiidae) that resulted in 70% decrease in acaricides use and improved control of the pest. During two consecutive seasons we compared the efficacy of spider mite control between IPM-biocontrol treated plots and chemically treated plots. The chemically-treated plots used 4 times more acaricides than the IPM-treated-plots. Nonetheless, the spider mite load (calculated as the number of spider mites per area X number of days that spider mites were present in that area) was three times higher in the chemically-treated plots. These results, coupled with commercial and technical field experience of the last three years, confirm that implementing Phytoseiulus persimilis in tomato crop and taking decisions based on sophisticated scouting, yield a safer and more potent system to control spider mites.
