Control of spider mites and thrips with phytoseiid predators on sweet pepper



Control of spider mites and thrips with phytoseiid predators on sweet pepper



Bulletin SROP 10(2): 158-159



Biological control of Tetranychus urticae with the predacious mite Phytoseiulus persimilis on sweet pepper has been reasonably effective in the Netherlands, but problems with minor pests, mainly Thrips tabaci, have impeded the development of integrated pest management programmes attractive to growers. Large-scale biological control of thrips on C. annuum using the phytoseiid Amblyseius cucumeris was started on commercial holdings in 1985.
