  1. Movement of cyantraniliprole in plants after foliar applications and its impact on the control of sucking and chewing insects.

    Pest Management Science 71(3):395 (2015) PMID 24771486

    Given the physical properties of insecticides, there is often some movement of these compounds within crop plants following foliar application. In this context, movement of two formulations of cyantraniliprole, an anthranilic diamide, was characterized for translocation to new growth, distribution w...
  2. Lack of cross-resistance to a novel succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor, fluopyram, in highly boscalid-resistant isolates of Corynespora cassi...

    Pest Management Science 67(4):474 (2011) PMID 21226015

  3. Status of insecticide resistance in Culex pipiens field populations from north-eastern areas of Italy before the withdrawal of OP compounds.

    Pest Management Science 67(1):100 (2011) PMID 20981741

  4. Twelfth IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry, Melbourne, Australia, 2010-Chemistry for a Sustainable World.

    Pest Management Science 66(3):229 (2010) PMID 20148432

  5. Lack of adaptation to a new host in a generalist herbivore: implications for host plant resistance to twospotted spider mites in cotton.

    Pest Management Science 71(4):531 (2015) PMID 24777962

    The twospotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae Koch) is an important pest of cotton. This pest has a broad host range, but when changing between hosts an initial decline in fitness often occurs. This is usually followed by an increase in fitness after rapid adaptation to the new host, usually withi...
  6. Temperature-activity relationships in Meligethes aeneus: implications for pest management.

    Pest Management Science 71(3):459 (2015) PMID 25052810 PMCID PMC4345434

    Pollen beetle (Meligethes aeneus F.) management in oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) has become an urgent issue in the light of insecticide resistance. Risk prediction advice has relied upon flight temperature thresholds, while risk assessment uses simple economic thresholds. However, there is variat...
  7. Impact of fipronil on the mushroom bodies of the stingless bee Scaptotrigona postica.

    Pest Management Science 71(1):114 (2015) PMID 24648377

    Studies on stingless bees are scarce, and little is known about these insects, especially regarding the effects of contamination by neurotoxic insecticides, which can cause damage to important structures of the insect brain. This study evaluated the morphological changes in the intrinsic neurons of...
  8. The occurrence and abundance of two alien eucalypt psyllids in apple orchards.

    Pest Management Science 70(11):1676 (2014) PMID 24307287

    The arrival of alien insects is frequently associated with the introduction of alien plants. Two exotic Psylloidea native to Australia [Ctenarytaina eucalypti (Maskell, 1890) and Ctenarytaina spatulata Taylor, 1997] were recorded during a two-year survey in five apple orchards located in Asturias, o...
  9. Bemisia tabaci females from the Mediterranean (Q) species detect and avoid laying eggs in the presence of pyriproxyfen, a juvenile hormone a...

    Pest Management Science 70(10):1468 (2014) PMID 24375924

    Pyriproxyfen, a juvenile hormone analogue, disrupts embryogenesis, metamorphosis and adult formation in Bemisia tabaci, but does not directly affect adult females. The effect of pyriproxyfen on egg-laying preference and performance of B. tabaci females and the influence of resistance to pyriproxyfen...
  10. Global herbicide resistance challenge.

    Pest Management Science 70(9):1305 (2014) PMID 25044607
