Integrated pest management of tomato/potato psyllid, Paratrioza cockerelli (SULC) (Homoptera: Psyllidae) with emphasis on its importance in greenhouse grown tomatoes
The tomato (potato) psyllid, Paratrioza cockerelli (Sulc), has developed into a key insect pest of greenhouse tomatoes of western North America and few options have been available for its management. A series of trials were thus conducted to identify techniques that could be used in establishing an integrated pest management (IPM) program for the insect. In studies investigating improvements in sampling methods for tomato psyllid, the effects of trap color, trap orientation and height in respect to the crop were evaluated. Greatest captures of adult psyllids occurred on neon-green, neon-orange ...
