Population dynamics of the thrips predators amblyseius mckenziei and amblyseius cucumeris acarina phytoseiidae on sweet pepper



Population dynamics of the thrips predators amblyseius mckenziei and amblyseius cucumeris acarina phytoseiidae on sweet pepper



Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science 36(3): 247-252



On greenhouse-grown sweet peppers (Capsicum annuum), the thrips predator Amblyseius cucumeris established easier and reached higher population densities than the related species A. mckenziei (A. barkeri). Mixed populations of both predators were observed during several generations, but eventally A. mckenziei was superseded. A. cucumeris is considered the better predator for thrips control on this crop.
