Abstract: The knowledge of the flow of parasitoids in cultivation areas is a practice that should be adopted forchoosing a best method for the regulation of pest populations. The aim of this study was to determine the occurrenceof parasitoids associated with larvae of Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Dichomerisfamulata Meyrick (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in maize (Zea mays L.) under organic and conventional productionsystem. The experiment was conducted at the National Research Center for Maize and Sorghum (CNPMS) in SeteLagoas, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Hymenoptera parasitoids emerged from S. frugiperda, including the Ichneumonidae:Campoletis flavicincta, Colpotrochia sp. nov., Eiphosoma laphygmae and Ophion flavidus; the Braconidae speciesChelonus (Chelonus) insularis, Dolichozele koebelei and Exasticolus sp. nov. This is the first report of Colpotrochiasp. nov., Dolichozele koebelei and Exasticolus sp. nov. parasitizing S. frugiperda. From larvae of D. famulata emergedthe Braconidae: Cotesia sp., Glyptapanteles sp., Phanerotoma sp. (Group Fuscovaria) and Chelonus (Microchelonus)sp. nov. (first occurrence in D. famulata).

Abstract: does the aggressiveness of the prey modify the attack behavior of the predator supputius cincticeps (st?l) (hemiptera, pentatomidae)? the stink bug supputius cincticeps (st?l) (hemiptera, pentatomidae) is a predator found in several brazilian regions, which possesses desirable attributes as a natural control agent and in biological control programs. the aim of this study was to test if the attack behavior and predation success of s. cincticeps were affected by prey species. larvae of tenebrio molitor (l.) (coleoptera, tenebrionidae), spodoptera frugiperda (j. e. smith) (lepidoptera, noctuidae), and thyrinteina arnobia (stoll) (lepidoptera, geometridae) were offered to s. cincticeps in laboratory bioassays where predatory attack and prey defensive behaviors were observed for 2-hour periods. the attack behavior of s. cincticeps changed with the prey species offered. more than 25% of t. molitor and s. frugiperda larvae were immediately attacked, but t. arnobia was not immediately attacked by s. cincticeps. successful attack (i.e., successful insertion of the predator stylets into the prey) depends on the region of the body attacked, with a greater proportion of successful attacks in the anterior than in the median or posterior regions. larvae of t. arnobia and s. frugiperda displayed a sequence of abrupt head and body movements in response to s. cincticeps attack. attempts of predation were more successful on t. molitor and s. frugiperda than on t. arnobia. information about the differential attack behavior of s. cincticeps on different prey species is important for designing successful biological control programs using this hemipteran predator.

Abstract: diatraea saccharalis (fabr.) (lepidoptera: pyralidae) spends the largest part of its life cycle inside the stalk of the host plant,which provides protection against the action of conventional control methods. biological control has been considered a viable alternative to control this pest in sugarcane (saccharum officinarum l.) and corn (zea mays l.), two pest preferential hosts. this paper reports the occurrence in brazil of tetrastichus howardi (olliff) (hymenoptera; chalcidoidea: eulophidae) parasitizing pupae of d. saccharalis obtained from corn plants. it also includes preliminary biological data about the insect. a single female of t. howardi is able to produce up to 66 offspring using a single pupa of the host d. saccharalis and apparently does not distinguish between the host pupae of different ages. the life cycle of the parasitoid was around 25.5 days. the presence of the parasitoid in brazil opens a new perspective on suppression of the sugarcane borer, considering the promising results already obtained in asian countries. the insect is well adapted to laboratory conditions, can be produced in large scale and may became an additional option for the integrated pest management in those crops where d. saccharalis is a key pest such as the sugarcane, corn and sorghum (sorghum bicolor (l.) moench).

Abstract: survey of ear flies (diptera, ulidiidae) in maize (zea mays l.) and a new record of euxesta mazorca steyskalin brazil. species of euxesta (diptera, ulidiidae), known as silk flies or ear flies, are becoming increasingly important as maize insect pests in south america, although very little is known about them in brazil. the larvae of some species of this genus initially damage female reproductive tissues, and then the developing kernels on the ear. as a result of feeding, fermentation and associated odors cause complete loss of the grain because it is no longer fit for human or livestock consumption. the main objective of this work was to evaluate the incidence of euxesta spp. in brazilian maize fields and to determine the most prevalent species using two different hydrolyzed protein foods attractants, bioanastrepha? (hydrolyzed maize protein) and torula, placed inside mcphail traps. the two species identified were e. eluta loew and e. mazorca steyskal, the latter being a new record from brazil. between the two species, e. eluta was the more abundant in maize fields. both attractants were efficient in capturing the two species. however, bioanastrepha? captured significantly more insects than torula.

Abstract: O estudo aqui relatado foi conduzido nas safras agrícolas de 1991 e 1992, em Cruz Alta, no Rio Grande do Sul. O objetivo foi avaliar o efeito de diferentes níveis de infesta o de Diloboderus abderus Sturm, 1826 (Coleoptera: Melolonthidae) em aveia preta (Avena strigosa L.), em linho (Linum usitatissimum L.), em milho (Zea mays L.) e em girassol (Helianthus annuus L.), no sistema de plantio direto. O aumento do número de larvas/m2 propiciou a ocorrência de danos e, em conseqüência, a diminui o da popula o de plantas, da massa seca da parte aérea e da produtividade. Os níveis de controle obtidos foram variáveis dependendo da cultura. Com base nos danos produzidos pelo inseto, sugerem-se os níveis de controle de 12 larvas/m2 em linho, de 10 larvas/m2 em aveia preta, de 0,5 larva/m2 em milho e de 0,4 larva/m2 em girassol, como indicador para tratamento de sementes destas culturas com inseticidas.

Abstract: Foram conduzidos em Cruz Alta, RS, no ano agrícola de 2000, quatro experimentos, em condi es de campo, para avaliar a rea o de cultivares de trigo e a eficiência de inseticidas, quanto à incidência de pulg es transmissores do Barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) e seus danos às plantas. A maioria dos pulg es coletados (75%) foi Rhopalosiphum padi (Linnaeus). Outras três espécies de pulg es foram coletadas em número menor (25%). Apenas para a cultivar Fundacep 31, o teste de ELISA confirmou a presen a dos vírus BYDV-PAV, BYDV-MAV e BYDV-SGV. As cultivares apresentaram respostas distintas, sendo agrupadas como resistentes (Fundacep 30, Fundacep 36 e Fundacep 37) e suscetível (Fundacep 31). Os inseticidas imidacloprida e tiametoxam na dosagem de 24,5g 100kg de sementes-1, aplicados nas sementes, foram eficazes no controle dos pulg es vetores de BYDV, superando a a o de três aplica es do clorpirifós na parte aérea. Dosagens a partir de 8,5g 100kg de sementes-1 de imidacloprida e tiametoxam evitaram perdas em produtividade de trigo causada pelo complexo pulg es-BYDV.

Ciência Rural , 2003,
Abstract: A lagarta-da-soja, Anticarsia gemmatalis Hübner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), é uma praga importante na cultura da soja no Brasil. Este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar diferentes inseticidas, reguladores de crescimento, para o controle dessa praga. Os inseticidas diflubenzuron (15g i.a. ha-1), lufenuron (7,5g i.a. ha-1), metoxifenozide (21,6g i.a. ha-1) e teflubenzuron (7,5g i.a. ha-1) foram aplicados com pulverizador costal de precis o, equipado com pontas tipo leque 110, 02, numa press o de 1 bar e volume de calda de 100l ha-1. No dia da aplica o dos inseticidas, as plantas de soja (cv. Fundacep 33) estavam com 0,90m de altura, no estádio R3.1, e infesta o média de 95 lagartas pequenas e de 33 lagartas grandes por dois metros de fileira. A eficiência dos inseticidas foi determinada através da contagem do número de lagartas vivas pequenas e grandes aos 0, 2, 4, 7 e 10 dias após a aplica o (DAA); da percentagem de desfolha aos 15 DAA e da produ o de gr os. Foi observado efeito de choque do inseticida metoxifenozide tanto em lagartas pequenas quanto em grandes. Os inseticidas diflubenzuron, lufenuron e teflubenzuron controlaram eficientemente as lagartas a partir de 4 DAA. As infesta es de lagartas nas parcelas testemunhas aumentaram a desfolha em 75,8% e reduziram produtividade para 2371 kg ha-1. Nas parcelas tratadas com inseticidas desfolha variou de 34,7% a 50,7% e a produtividade entre 3255kg ha-1 e 3585kg ha-1.
