- ... Genetic options for the control of invasive fishes were recently reviewed and synthesized at a 2010 international symposium, held in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. The only option currently available “off-the-shelf” is triploidy, which can be used to produce sterile males for a release program analogous to those widely and successfully used for biological control of insect pests. However, the Troj ...

- ... Lygus Hahn (Hemiptera: Miridae) are serious pests of agricultural and greenhouse crops throughout North America. In Europe, bivoltine Peristenus Forster (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) species have a significant impact on Lygus populations. Release and establishment of European P. digoneutis Loan in Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois) populations in northeastern USA has renewed interest in the intend ...
