Comparing the effectiveness of different insecticide application orders for suppressing Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae) infestation: experimental and modeling approaches

Mermer, S., Stacconi, M. V. R., Tait, G., Pfab, F., Sial, A. A., Disi, J. O., … Walton, V. M. (2023, May 8). (C. Rodriguez-Saona, Ed.). JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC ENTOMOLOGY, Vol. 5.

Ed(s): C. Rodriguez-Saona

author keywords: spotted-wing drosophila; insecticide timing; Integrated Pest Management; population modeling; seasonal application
MeSH headings : Animals; Insecticides; Drosophila; Insect Control / methods; Blueberry Plants; Oregon; Fruit; Crops, Agricultural; Rubus
TL;DR: The present study demonstrates that seasonal infestation of D. suzukii could be suppressed irrespective of application order, and additional research is required to assess the optimal timing and sequence of insecticide applications for controlling seasonal populations of the pest in fruit crops.

Monitoring of Spotted-Wing Drosophila (Diptera: Drosophilidae) Resistance Status Using a RAPID Method for Assessing Insecticide Sensitivity Across the United States

Isaacs, R., Van Timmeren, S., Gress, B. E., Zalom, F. G., Ganjisaffar, F., Hamby, K. A., … Sial, A. (2022, March 17). JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC ENTOMOLOGY, Vol. 3.

By: R. Isaacs*, S. Van Timmeren*, B. Gress*, F. Zalom*, F. Ganjisaffar*, K. Hamby*, M. Lewis*, O. Liburd* ...

author keywords: Drosophila suzukii; invasive; bioassay; screening; susceptibility
MeSH headings : Animals; Crops, Agricultural; Drosophila; Female; Fruit; Insect Control / methods; Insecticides / pharmacology; Malathion / pharmacology; Methomyl / pharmacology; United States
TL;DR: Widespread evaluations of this method and subsequent validation in California, Michigan, and Georgia in 2019–2021 show that it provides a quick and low-cost method to identify populations of D. suzukii that warrant more detailed testing, and provides evidence that important insecticide classes remain effective in most U.S. regions of fruit production.

Uncovering Transcriptional Responses to Fractional Gravity in Arabidopsis Roots

LIFE-BASEL, 11(10).

By: J. Sheppard n, E. Land n, T. Toennisson n, C. Doherty n & I. Perera n

author keywords: spaceflight; fractional gravity; RNA-seq; Arabidopsis; gene expression; heat shock proteins
TL;DR: A subset of genes whose expression correlates with changes in fractional g include those encoding transcription factors, defense, and cell wall-related proteins and heat shock proteins, which are likely to be responsive to gravity changes. (via Semantic Scholar)

Measuring the effect of non-crop flowering plants on natural enemies in organic tobacco


By: T. Aurora Toennisson n, J. Klein* & H. Burrack n

author keywords: Myzus persicae; Sunflower; Buckwheat; Insectary plantings; Conservation biological control
TL;DR: Planting additional insectary strips in the field interior did not reduce aphid numbers in comparison to control treatments and led to increases in some pest insects, suggesting conservation biological control techniques are unlikely to be a reliable method of controlling M. persicae and other pest insects in organic tobacco.
