Sticky-tape method to measure cultivar effect on wheat curl mite Acari Eriophyidae populations in wheat spikes



Sticky-tape method to measure cultivar effect on wheat curl mite Acari Eriophyidae populations in wheat spikes



Journal of Economic Entomology 81.2: 731-734



Differences in numbers of wheat curl mites (WCM), Eriophyes tulipae Keifer, infesting wheat cultivars in the field were determined using a new sticky-tape technique. Excised, milk-stage wheat spikes were placed on strips of transparant tape and numbers of mites that crawled out of the drying heads and became stuck on the tape were estimated. "TAM 107" and "KS85H22," both carrying resistance to WCM derived from rye, had significantly lower mite populations in spikes and lower incidence of wheat streak mosaic than other cultivars.
