A system approach to greenhouse whitefly trialeurodes vaporariorum population dynamics and strategy for greenhouse whitefly control in china



A system approach to greenhouse whitefly trialeurodes vaporariorum population dynamics and strategy for greenhouse whitefly control in china



Zeitschrift fuer Angewandte Entomologie 97(3): 305-313



There are 2 weak points in the life cycle of greenhouse whiteflies within a growing season: immigration from the fields into the greenhouses in autumn and emigration from the greenhouses into the fields in spring. Any effort that aids in discontinuing the pest's life cycle on these 2 weak points will greatly reduce the pest's damage, and the effects of measures at both points might be expected to be accumulating. For effective control, whatever the measurements might be, the key for success in control is to have a low initial population density (that is, to obtain clean seedlings). Temperature monitoring and prediction is important in considering optimal control of whiteflies, but temperature manipulation cannot be used as a measure for pest control. Only when the whitefly population density is well above the economic threshold, an effect of whitefly density on fecundity and mortality needs to be incorporated into the system model for evaluating the population trends and determination of optimal control. The preference of whiteflies for various species of host plants is very different. By growing celery and paprika as the 1st crop, initial whitefly population density can be much reduced. These host plants are also tolerant to low temperatures and thus advantageous in energy saving. Planting of clean seedlings and non-preferred host plants form the basis for integrated control. When necessary, rational application of insecticides, release of Encarsia formosa, application of yellow sticky traps, cleaning out of old leaves, etc. may be considered. This control strategy, which is centered mainly on integrated control, is based on ecological and economical conditions in China.
