Beneficial arthropods in vine hillsides with natural cover flora - how can one record them?


, : Beneficial arthropods in vine hillsides with natural cover flora - how can one record them?. Obst und Weinbau 130(7): 164-167

Methods were investigated in Switzerland for recording populations of beneficial arthropods (predators and parasitoids) in vineyards with natural ground cover in eastern Switzerland in 1992 and 1993. Predatory mites (especially Typhlodromus pyri) and other small arthropods were sampled using a flotation technique. Yellow traps were used for egg parasitoids, especially Anagrus atomus attacking Empoasca vitis.
