Waqas, M.S., Shoaib, A.A.Z., Elabasy, A.S.S., Cheng, X., Zhang, Q., & Shi, Z. 2020 Effects of delayed mating on male mating success and female reproductive performance of Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae). Crop Protection 132(2020): 105135


  • biological control
  • reproduction
  • Notes: In this experiment, we study effects of male-only, female-only and both sexes delayed mating on mating success, reproduction and longevity of P. solenopsis. These results suggest that mating disruption techniques, such as application of sex pheromones, will be very useful for the management of P. solenopsis under the field level either applying alone or using with integrated pest management tools.
