Intensive agriculture, which is associated with heavy inputs of synthetic insecticides, has serious ecological impacts, leading to loss of vital ecosystem services including insect-mediated pest suppression. In recent years, efforts have been made towards obtaining safer options to chemical...
Many groups of insects utilize substrate-borne vibrations for communication. They display various behaviors in response to vibrations in sexual and social communication and in predator–prey interactions. Although the number of reports on communication and behaviors using vibrations has continued...
Western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae), is an important invasive polyphagous pest in vegetable and ornamental crops. The increasing resistance to chemical insecticides in F. occidentalis has resulted in heightened interest in alternative control...
Dispersal ability is an important trait for insects that affects their survival and distribution ranges. In this study, we focused on variations in hind wing length in Galerucella grisescens (Joannis 1866) (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Galerucinae). We surveyed frequencies of long-winged (LW) and...
We developed 10 novel simple sequence repeat markers from expressed sequence tags for the honey locust seed beetle, Megabruchidius dorsalis Fåhraeus 1839 (Coleoptera: Bruchidae, using de novo transcriptome analysis based on next-generation sequencing. In a M. dorsalis Harataima (Kanagawa-pref.)...
Based on DNA sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (mtCOI) genes, three PCR forward primers specific for Bursaphelenchus mucronatus mucronatus, B. m. kolymensis, and B. xylophilus (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae), and one common PCR reverse primer were developed to determine the...
