An analysis of the particular topics in biological control programmes all over the world indicates an increased interest in the utilization of aphid parasites. Besides the so-called traditional biological control of introduced aphids, there appears a situation which could perhaps be called aBrand: Springer Netherlands.

Several years ago he decided to summarize our knowledge on the aphid parasites of the world by elaborating synthetical studies on the particular zoogeographical areas. These papers have been intended to represent annotated reviews of the parasite fauna, distribution, biologies and utilization in aphid pest management, with keys to genera and.   Although most ant–aphid trophobiotic associations are facultative, some ant species bring aphids or even aphid eggs into their nests in winter, ensuring the continuity of the relationship (4 –6). Here, we report an unprecedented ant–aphid relationship at the evolutionary interface between cooperation and exploitation involving the coexistence of two aphid clonal morphs: a trophobiotic Cited by: 9.

Effective biological control for aphids! This tiny parasitic wasp (Aphidius colemani) hones in on its prey by sensing the distress signals of infested plants as well as detecting the aphid’s honeydew secretions. Once there, it injects an egg into the aphid. When the egg hatches, the larvae begin to consume the pest from inside. Biology and Ecology of Aphids By Andreas Vilcinskas. Hardback $ eBook $ ISBN Book Description. Most people know of aphids as garden pests, infesting the soft green tissues of plants in vast numbers and killing them by sucking out the sap. Indeed, among the or so known species of aphids about are pests. A. ervi attacks “larger” species such as Potato Aphid (Macrosiphum euphorbiae) and Foxglove Aphid (Aulacorthum solani). These are some of the most common pest aphids, but all total, over 40 species are hosts for either A. colemani or A. ervi, or both. Aphid species controlled by parasites include peach potato aphid, green peach aphid, and other aphid species typically found on peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, ornamentals and other plants grown indoors or in the greenhouse. As a preventative treatment, aphid parasites can be used at the rate of per square yard of greenhouse space, applied every other week. Preventive releases would be started about the same time of year as aphids .
