In India, Gautam and Verma b observed apterous virginoparae undergoing four moults resulting in five instars. A total of individuals from four different regions were collected and analysed. Sachan and Gangwar, They appear nearly black, especially on the head and thorax, although sometimes a dingy yellowish-brown, and lack the white waxy covering of other virginoparae.

Both control methods were considered promising as potential management options for underground Eriosoma lanigerum populations. Crawlers first instar nymphs migrated up and down the trunk mainly from spring to autumn and horizontal migration through the canopy was observed from May to August.

Very little internal or external deformation of roots was observed after treatment with indoleacetic acid. In potted tree assays, several compounds including imidacloprid, spirotetramat and oxamyl showed good root and systemic activity; in field trials, however, results were more variable. Except where otherwise specified, all text and images on this page are copyright InfluentialPoints under a Creative Commons Attribution 3. Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science, 1: Peak numbers of first instar aphids were recorded during spring.

Feeding resulted in greater shoot and root dry weights and a disruption eriosoms nutrient balance, with reduced foliar nitrogen and phosphorous compared to control trees Weber and Brown, Therefore, as both variables are highly correlated, IS can be used instead of AI to evaluate the level lanigerrum WAA infestation, as it is much easier to obtain.

Woolly Apple Aphid

Laniegrum Maps Top of page You can pan and zoom the map. These rootstocks are not totally resistant to E. Aphididaein South African apple orchards. At the beginning of February, the coldest month in our area, 75 shoots that had similar levels of WAA infestations the previous summer were selected.

The gene Er3, from Aotea an accession classified as Malus sieboldiiis a new major gene for woolly apple aphid resistance. Two simultaneous upward and downward movement peaks were recorded each year, first during mid-June and second during October-November.

It spread rapidly and aphid infestations soon subsided to a non-injurious level. The net correlation between movement and mean maximum temperature was positive and significant, whereas it eriosima insignificant for mean minimum temperature and rainfall.

These can cause cosmetic damage and lead to the growth of sooty moulds on the apples. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata— Environmental Entomology 23 5 Pests and diseases and their control. Woolly apple aphid occurred on the apple trees mainly as apterous virginoparae throughout the year and laniyerum a preference for the lower part of the canopy and the trunk.

High AI rates were observed on shoots on which recolonization by crawlers and access of natural enemies were prevented by cloth bags table 3. They have a relatively small cornical pore size around 0.

Chrysopidaehoverflies Diptera: Every week throughout the year, we counted the number of earwigs per shelter.

Aphids moving up from the root colonies were lanigermu on the lower tape, while those moving down from the canopy were trapped on the higher one. The overall results showed resistance in Geneva, G, Willie Sharp and G to settlement and development with low survival at the larval stage of the aphid, whereas Raritan showed resistance in all the parameters tested. Eriosoma lanigerum occurs on the both the aerial and subterranean woody tissue of apple. Er1 also showed low settlement and survival, although not as low as Er2.

Journal of Horticultural Science 37 3 Spiders have been reported as important predators of green apple aphid Aphis pomi L. The number of aphids captured on trees that were permanently taped and trees that were included in the evaluation every 4 weeks was log-transformed and analyzed by a non-parametric Wilcoxon friosoma.

Staubli A; Chapuis P, Aphelinidaeto common pesticides used in apple orchards in Israel. The apple tree is its secondary host, on which alate viviparous adults produce parthenogenic apterate populations throughout the year. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Spatial variation in woolly aphids. Thus, oanigerum measures should simultaneously address roots and canopy.

Further research is needed to determine an eripsoma threshold in spring to evaluate whether the natural control would be enough or if additional measures must be applied. Journal of Economic Entomology 6 Studies of seasonal movements showed that the number of aphids moving up the tree increased during May and June, reached a high level during July and August and lanigwrum during September, October and November.

Shoot temperature was only 0. Therefore, crop-originated parasitoids would have to accept pests from the refuge as hosts to lay eggs in, and refuge-originated parasitoids would have to accept and lay eggs in pests from the crop.

Regarding the captures of crawlers moving through the canopy, the highest captures were from June onwards, following the same pattern as the captures of downward crawlers, and immediately after the peak of upward movement was recorded fig 1. Journal of Natural History 33 4 For example, in Norway, where the aphid is not established, E.
