- ... A simple method of marking Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) using stable isotopes is described. This species is economically important and is a target species of many successful area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) programs using the sterile insect technique (SIT). Program monitoring in the field relies on being able to accurately differentiate released sterile insec ...

- ... Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), or fall armyworm, is an important agricultural pest of several crops in the Western Hemisphere, including cotton (Gossypium L.). Two morphologically identical host strains of fall armyworm exist that differ in plant host use and habitat distribution. The corn-strain is a primary pest of corn, Zea mays L., whereas the rice-strain is the m ...
