- ... Wild host plants are important for tarnished plant bug (TPB – Lygus lineolaris) populations, especially when cultivated crops are not flowering. Knowledge of native habitats is important for managing this insect pest. Although pollen has been used to characterize dispersal and food sources of many insects, it has not been used for TPB. The purpose of this study was to determine if pollen analyses ...
