The host stage and species utilized by a parasitic mite, Hemisarcoptes cooremani Thomas (Acari: Hemisarcoptidae), was studied to evaluate the mite's potential as an augmentative biological control agent against California red scale, Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell) (Diaspididae: Homoptera). Single applications at 0.125, 0.25 and 0.5 g a.i. Pekas, A. Bedford, E.C.G. Aonidiella aurantii, Mask., all stages of which are described, is a serious pest of Citrus in Kagoshima Prefecture, especially in the coastal districts, and also infests a number of other plants, including Cycas, Yucca, Sterculia (Firmiana) platanifolia and Elaeagnus [cf. 2015. Life history parameters and scale-cover surface area of Aonidiella aurantii are altered in a mating disruption environment: implications for biological control. 1971. A3 (Landbou)) 1, 1 – 179. Factors affecting the biological control of California red scale Aonidiella aurantii (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) by Aphytis (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) in eastern Spain citrus: host size, ant activity, and adult parasitoid food sources [Tesis doctoral no publicada]. The Aonidiella aurantii is a cochineal with sexual dimorphism with the females having a follicle of about 2 mm of diameter, round and of a hazel-reddish color; the exuviae are central and darker. Generalist and stenophagous predators, mainly associated with other citrus pests such as aphids, proved to be the most important biological control agents of this pest. The main biological control agents of Ao. Drift reduction of low drift nozzles in spraying citrus orchards.

Up to now, the A. aurantii sex pheromone has been used only for monitoring. The first results of a 2-years project (1995-96) concerning the biological and chemical control of California Red Scale, Aonidiella aurantii Mask., are reported. L-1 gave unsatisfactory control of C. viridis in comparison to 1% oil and methidathion at 0.5 g a.i. In eastern Spain it has spread during the last decades up to cover a vast extension of citrus landscapes.

Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa 31: 1-15. In this work, biodegradable dispensers for mating disruption with increasing pheromone loads were used in order to study the potential of this technique for the control of Aonidiella aurantii … They then … The project consisted of four main activities: males flights and Aphytis melinus DeBach monitoring, augmentative releases of A. melinus, timing of chemical applications, field trials of selective compounds. aurantii in this zone are the parasitoid Aphytis melinus DeBach (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae).

BACKGROUND: The control of California red scale, Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell), has encountered many difficulties, which has raised interest in alternative control methods. Type data: NEW ZEALAND: Governors Bay, on oranges and lemons imported to New Zealand from Sydney.. Injurious effects of Aonidiella aurantii 9 1.2.2.5. Parasite introductions began in 1943, and continued until 1979. California red scale, Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell), is a worldwide pest of citrus, and it has been a key pest of California citrus for many years, especially in the San Joaquin Valley (Ebeling 1959, Flint et al. latus and Aonidiella aurantii and the predatory Coccinellid Chilocorus circumdatus. The males, of smaller dimensions, have a follicle of about 1 mm in length, oval and light brown in color. Abstract Two sprays of Abate (O,O,O',O'-tetramethyl O,O'-thiodi-p-phenylene diphosphorothioate) or dioxathion (Delnav) for the control of Scirtothrips aurantii Faure on Citrus in South Africa were shown to cause heavy infestation by Aonidiella aurantii (Mask.) In many citrus areas around the world and within citrus-producing regions of Australia, the California red scale (CRS), Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell) (Hemiptera: Diaspididae), is considered the most important pests of citrus. Aonidiella aurantti or Red Scale are an insect pest found commonly on Citrus species. In the lower Murray valley of Australia, the major insect pest of citrus, California red scaleAonidiella aurantii (Maskell), is controlled by a number of introduced hymenopterous parasites. Aonidiella citrina usually attacks the leaves and fruit but rarely the bark (whereas A. aurantii occurs on all aerial parts of the plant). It failed to become established on red scale but was found by 1931 to have become established on yellow scale (Aonidiella citrina). The control of A. aurantii has encountered many difficulties, which has raised interest in alternative control methods (Vacas et al., 2010). From 1877 to 1937 the red scale, Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell), was repeatedly misidentified, and its generic placement was particularly unsound and misleading. The females are brownish-red in colour and oval in shape. Abstract - Introduction. Unfortunately, not many experiments on mating disruption to control diaspididae species have been documented. and citrus thrips Scirtothrips aurantii Faure on citrus in South Africa.— Annale Univ. Aonidiella aurantii or red scale is an armored scale insect and a major pest of citrus.It is thought to be a native of South China but has been widely dispersed by the agency of man through the movement of infected plant material. PDF | Background and Objective: The California Red Scale (CRS) is a serious pest of citrus in many parts of the world. L-1. The females are brownish-red in colour and oval in shape. BACKGROUND: New directives on sustainable use of pesticides have encouraged research on efficient alternative pest control methods. Scale insects are in the same family as aphids, whitefly and mealy-bugs. Scale insects are members of the order Hemiptera, which are characterised by mouth-parts with a proboscis, capable of piercing plant tissues and sucking out the liquids – typically plant sap. The biological control of red scale, Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell), on citrus in South Africa. R.A.E., A 26 604]. Red scale Aonidiella aurantii. The males are similar until they get to the second moult. Control of Aonidiella aurantii (Maskelle) populations in citrus orchards in Morocco. For a time this scale was placed in the genus Chrysomphalus, mostly a South American genus; therefore, a decision was made to search for enemies of red scale in South America in 1935. Life cycle stages of Aonidiella aurantii 10 1.2.2.5.1. YELLOW SCALE . In a further experiment, numbers of Aonidiella aurantii were reduced from 300–1000 per 150 leaves on five trees to less than 10 per 150 leaves 18 months after the release of Aphytis melinus, whereas on a control tree they increased from 550 to 1450 per 150 leaves over nine of those months. Aonidiella aurantti or Red Scale are an insect pest found commonly on Citrus species. We compared how readily the mite established on five oleander scale, Aspidiotus nerii (Bouché), stages … Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell). Stellenbosch (Ser.
