Control of stink bugs in tomatoes


, : Control of stink bugs in tomatoes. California Agriculture 41(5-6): 4-6

Tomatoes grown in California for marketing and processing are periodically infested by pentatomids, of which Euschistus conspersus (the most abundant), Thyanta accerra, and to a lesser extent Chlorochroa spp. are the commonest; in addition, Nezara viridula, an important pest of numerous vegetable crops elsewhere, was collected on tomato in California for the first time in 1985 and identified in 1986.
