The tomato leafminer, Tuta absoluta (Lepi- doptera: Gelechiidae), is considered to be a major pest that damages tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L; Solanaceae) crops in South American, European, and Mediterranean countries. This insect species is polyphagous (i.e., feeds on many types of food); hence, it could also develop on other cultivated host plants, principally solanaceous plants, such as potato (S. tuberosum L.; Solanaceae) and eggplant (S. melongena L.; Solanaceae). Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that host plant choice by adult T. absoluta is influenced by plant volatile organic compounds and larval host plant experience. One tomato cultivar (cv.) ‘Money- maker’ and three potato cv. ‘Charlotte’ ‘Bintje,’ and ‘Nicola’ were tested. Using a flying tunnel, we observed that females reared on tomato preferred flying toward tomato and, to a lesser extent, potato cv. ‘Charlotte.’ These preferences might be explained by the high release of terpenes by these two plants. When conducting oviposition choice assays, we found no preference between tomato and potato in the number of eggs laid by females that had been previously reared on either host plant. This study indicates that the host finding behavior of T. absoluta is mediated by solanaceous volatiles, while oviposition behavior appears to depend on additional stimuli. These results provide baseline information for use in the development of new control strategies against T. absoluta using semiochemicals and plant breeding. [less ▲]

The multicolored Asian ladybeetle, Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), was introduced into Western Europe in the late 1990s. Since the late 2000s, this species has been commonly considered one of the most abundant aphid predators in most Western European coun- tries. In spite of the large amount of research on H. axyridis, information concerning its relative abundance in agroecosystems is lacking. This study aims to evaluate the abundance of H. axyridis within the aphidophage community in four crops situated in southern Belgium: wheat, Triticum aestivum L. (Poales: Poaceae), corn, Zea mays, potato, Solanum tuberosum (Solanales: Solanaceae), and broad bean Vicia faba (Fabales: Fabaceae). In order to assess the species diver- sity, the collected data were analyzed by considering (1) the species richness and (2) the evenness according to the Shannon diversity index. Eleven aphidophages were observed in every invento- ried agroecosystem, including five abundant species: three coccinellids, the seven-spotted ladybug, Coccinella septempunctata L. (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), the 14-spotted Ladybird, Propylea quatuordecimpunctata, and H. axyridis; one hoverfly, the marmalade hoverfly, Episyr- phus balteatus De Geer (Diptera: Syrphidae); and one lacewing, the common green lacewing, Chrysoperla carnea Stephens sensu lato (= s.l.) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae). Harmonia axyridis has been observed to thrive, breed, and reproduce on the four studied crops. Harmonia axyridis is the most abundant predator of aphids in corn followed by C. septempunctata, which is the main aphid predator observed in the three other inventoried crops. In wheat and potato fields, H. axyridis occurs in low numbers compared to other aphidophage. These observations suggest that H. axyridis could be considered an invasive species of agrosystems, and that potato and wheat may intermittently act as refuges for other aphidophages vulnerable to intraguild predation by this invader. Harmonia axyridis is not the most abundant aphid predator in the main Belgian crops. [less ▲]

Since its first report in 2000, the invasive mosquito Aedes albopictus was not found any more during the different entomological inspections performed at its place of introduction in Belgium between 2001 and 2012. In July 2013, one adult male was captured at the same site (a platform of imported used tires located in Vrasene, Oost-Vlaanderen Province), during a monitoring using CO2-baited trap. This finding suggests the reintroduction of the species in Belgium via the used tire trade. [less ▲]

The aim of this work was to isolate enzyme-producing microorganisms from the tract of the termite Reticulitermes santonensis. The microorganisms were extracted from the guts and anaerobic (CO2 or CO2/H2) and micro-aerobic atmospheres were used to stimulate growth. Three different strategies were tried out. First, the sample was spread on Petri dishes containing solid media with carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose or cellobiose. This technique allowed us to isolate two bacteria: Streptomyces sp. strain ABGxAviA1 and Pseudomonas sp. strain ABGxCellA. The second strategy consisted in inoculating a specific liquid medium containing carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, or cellobiose. The samples were then spread on Petri dishes with the same specific medium containing carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, or cellobiose. This led to the isolation of the mold Aspergillus sp. strain ABGxAviA2. Finally, the third strategy consisted in heating the first culture and spreading samples on agar plates containing rich medium. This led to the isolation of the bacterium Bacills subtilis strain ABGx. All those steps were achieved in controlled atmospheres. The four enzyme-producing strains which were isolated were obtained by using a micro-aerobic atmosphere. Later, enzymatic assays were performed on the four strains. Streptomyces sp. strain ABGxAviA1 was found to produce only amylase, while Pseudomonas sp. strain ABGxCellA was found to produce β-glucosidase as well. Aspergillus sp. strain ABGxAviA2 showed β-glucosidase, amylase, cellulase, and xylanase activities. Finally, Bacillus subtilis strain ABGx produced xylanase and amylase. [less ▲]

Several species of Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) biting midges are biological vectors of bluetongue virus (BTV) and, as recently discovered, Schmallenberg virus (SBV) in northern Europe. Since their recent emergence in this part of the continent, these diseases that affect domestic and wild ruminants have caused considerable economic losses to the sheep and cattle industries. The substrates that are suitable for larval development of the main vector species are still relatively unknown. This study assessed all the substrates present in the immediate surroundings of a Belgian cattle farm and aimed to highlight the main breeding sites of these midge species. A total of 1639 immature Culicoides and 1320 adult specimens belonging to 13 species were found in 15 out of the 43 substrates studied: maize silage residues for C. obsoletus/C. scoticus, old overwintered cattle dung in the meadow for C. chiopterus and C. dewulfi, ground of a flooded meadow, green filamentous algae and underlying substrate, silt from a pond, and ground of hollows caused by the crossing of machines on a dirt track for C. festivipennis, silt from a pond for C. nubeculosus, and ground of a flooded meadow for C. lupicaris. Identification of these micro-habitats and the associations among the species they contain could allow their localization and the development of new strategies of vector control, while preventing the creation of new Culicoides larval micro-habitats. Finally, measures designed to reduce larval populations could improve efficacy of vaccination campaigns against BTV in Europe. [less ▲]

Entomophagy is not well accepted in Western European populations but it is common in the world. In the future, populations from developed countries should adapt to other sources of animal proteins because traditional breeding of beef, poultry or pork will become unsustainable. This study was performed to assess the perception of entomophagy in the Belgian population. A slight neophobia was detected but people agreed to evaluate insect preparations. Various insect formulations (mealworms and house crickets) were prepared, and insects associated with known flavors and crispy textures were preferred. After a hedonic test, people seemed to be willing to eat and cook insects in the near future. The opportunity to introduce entomophagy in food habits of Western Euro- pean populations was positively concluded. Integration of edible insects in human food is a potential solution to replace other animal protein sources in a much more sustainable development and will deserve more attention in the future.

Human activity, commercial exchanges and climate changes current and future, could favor the (re)-emergence of vector-borne diseases, by inducing changes on Culicidae populations. This study aims to determine the potential importance of agricultural environments, especially cattle farms and equestrian, to welcome and favor the proliferation of some species of mosquito responsible for transmission of arboviruses. To better understand the structure of the Culicidae population and identify habitats favorable to the development of each species, a taxonomic inventory was conducted in 2008 (III, VI and X) and 2009 (V and IX) in ten cattle farms, and in 2011 (VI-X) and 2012 (VI-IX) in six equestrian farms located in Belgium. The harvest of mosquitoes is based on adult trapping by CO2-traps (Mosquito magnet) and on larval sampling at the level of 64 biotopes such as water troughs, used tires, abandoned utensils and temporary puddles or not. The morphotaxonomic of larvae and genitalia, and molecular study showed the presence of 15 species: Culiseta annulata Schrank, 1776; Cs. morsitans Theobald, 1901 Anopheles claviger s.s. Meigen, 1804; An. maculipennis s.s. Meigen, 1818; An. messeae Falleroni, 1926; An. plumbeus Stephens, 1828; Culex pipiens molestus Forskal, 1775; Cx. pipiens pipiens L., 1758; Cx. torrentium Martini, 1925; Cx. hortensis hortensis Ficalbi, 1889; Cx. territans Walker, 1856; Coquillettidia richiardii Ficalbi, 1889; Ochlerotatus geniculatus Olivier, 1791; Oc. cantans Meigen, 1818 and Aedes cinereus Meigen, 1818. Among the 57,680 individuals examined, Cx. pipiens s.l., Cx. torrentium and Cs. annulata are the dominants species and ubiquitous in all farms visited. The species of the genus Anopheles have strong ecological requirements and are therefore associated with some special habitats; other species however have a strong ability to adapt and therefore attend a wide variety of biotopes (Cx. pipiens s.l., Cx. torrentium and Cs. annulata). Water troughs, used tires and ponds are the most favorable habitats for larval development of Culicidae. The species potentially vectors of arboviruses that can cause problems in epidemiological farms are Cx. pipiens s.l., Cx. torrentium and Cq. richiardii. Therefore, despite the low diversity of mosquito observed within the livestock environments, they represent a significant risk for the reproduction of some potential vectors of arboviruses. In addition, some larval habitats constitute very favorable sites for proliferation of mosquito, causing a real problem of nuisance for animals of farms. [less ▲]

The Multicoloured Asian Ladybird, Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is known to thrive principally in shrubby and arboreal habitats. Its occurrence in agroecosystems remains poorly documented. This study focuses on the occurrence of this exotic species and its seasonal abundance in various field crops. The abundance of adults and larvae of H. axyridis was evaluated over a four-year period, from 2009 to 2012, in four important agronomical crops (wheat, corn, broad bean and potato) in Belgium. A total of 28 aphid predator species were observed including 14 coccinellid species, 13 hoverfly species and one lacewing species. H. axyridis is present and reproduces in all of the four crops studied, with the largest numbers recorded in corn and broad bean crops. In corn, H. axyridis numbers were found to increase over the four inventoried year, reaching 86% of the aphid predators in 2012, while it represented only 15% in 2009. H. axyridis was not always recorded where aphids were abundant, e.g. aphids were abundant on wheat where no H. axyridis were recorded. H. axyridis starts reproducing after the peak in aphid population, suggesting that H. axyridis is able to complete its development by feeding on alternative prey such as larvae and pupae of the same and other species of ladybird and other aphidophagous species. H. axyridis is often considered to be bivoltine but it only completes one generation per year in field crops. The second generation generally develops late in the season in other habitats. Harmonia axyridis is an invasive and an intraguild predator present in high quantities in some specific crops. In these crops, H. axyridis could negatively impact on population of native species due to IGP observed in several other studies. [less ▲]

L'environnement et les changements climatiques, ainsi que la mondialisation des échanges commerciaux internationaux peuvent affecter la distribution des pathogènes et/ou des arthropodes vecteurs. Actuellement, l’espèce Aedes albopictus Skuse est considérée comme le moustique le plus invasif dans le monde entier et l’un des plus importants vecteurs d’arbovirus (notamment chikungunya et dengue). En Belgique, Ae. albopictus a été introduit pour la première fois en 2000 à Vrasene (Province de Flandre-Orientale), dans une entreprise de recyclage des pneus usagés en provenance des États-Unis et du Japon.

Une étude sur la survie et la dispersion de ce moustique en Belgique, ainsi que de son écologie dans les pays voisins pourrait fournir des indications importantes pour élucider davantage son caractère invasif et identifier les zones à haut risque. Contexte Aedes albopictus (Skuse, 1894) (Diptera: Culicidae), communément appelé « le moustique tigre », est une espèce invasive originaire d’Asie du Sud-Est. Une nouvelle réintroduction de ce vecteur d’arbovirus a été enregistré en été 2013 en Belgique. Cette présentation abordera successivement : (a) L’invasion d’Ae. albopictus et importance médicale, (b) (Ré)-Introduction d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique, (c) Risque lié à l’introduction et à l’adaptation d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique, (d) Gestion de risque et contrôle. a. Invasion d’Ae. albopictus et importance médicale Depuis la fin des années 70s, Ae. albopictus connait une propagation explosive dans le monde entier où il est considéré actuellement comme le moustique le plus invasif dans le monde (1). La mondialisation des échanges commerciaux, notamment les pneus usagés (2) et le Lucky Bambou (3), est un facteur clé de cette invasion. En Europe, il a été signalé dans 20 pays et est aujourd'hui bien installé dans la région méditerranéenne (1). Ae. albopictus fait partie des plus importants vecteurs d’arbovirus, en particulier pour les virus de la dengue et du chikungunya (1), et des filarioses animales notamment Dirofilaria spp. (4). Le risque d'apparition et la propagation de ces arbovirus aux régions non épidémiques ont surtout augmenté dans les régions où Ae. albopictus est établi. Cette hypothèse est démontrée à plusieurs reprises, notamment les récentes transmissions autochtones du chikungunya et de la dengue en Italie, en Croatie et en France (1). b. (Ré)-Introduction d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique En Belgique, Ae. albopictus a été introduit pour la première fois en 2000 à Vrasene (Province de Flandre-Orientale), dans une entreprise de recyclage des pneus usagés en provenance des États-Unis et du Japon (5). Plusieurs autres inspections ont été effectuées (2001-2012) après ce premier rapport, mais aucun autre spécimen n’a été trouvé (6, Schaffner données non publiées). L’espèce était considérée comme éliminée naturellement et aucune nouvelle introduction n’avait été signalée (6). Cependant, une étude sur la surveillance de moustiques réalisée dans plusieurs endroits à travers la Belgique en 2013 a de nouveau signalé la capture d’Ae. albopictus à Vrasene, dans la même entreprise de recyclage de pneus. Cette redécouverte d’Ae. albopictus, ainsi que l'absence de toute constatation au cours des années précédentes (2001-2012), démontre sa réintroduction en Belgique via le commerce des pneus usagés (7). c. Risque lié à l’introduction et à l’adaptation d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique Aedes albopictus est un vecteur efficace confirmé des virus de la dengue et du chikungunya (1), ainsi que des filarioses animales notamment Dirofilaria spp. (4) ; la Belgique enregistre de plus régulièrement des cas de chikungunya importés (8). Ainsi, s'il s'établit dans le pays, Ae. albopictus peut devenir une menace importante et réelle pour la santé humaine et animale tant par son rôle de vecteur d'agents pathogènes que par sa nuisance. d. Gestion de risque et contrôle Une étude sur la survie et la dispersion d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique, ainsi que sur sa bio-écologie dans les pays voisins pourrait fournir des indications importantes pour élucider davantage son caractère invasif, et identifier les zones à haut risque. Une réponse proactive rapide est essentielle pour la lutte anti-vectorielle afin d’éviter son installation en Belgique. Cela inclut la mise en œuvre rapide de mesures de contrôle, avant que l’élimination ne devienne impossible (9). Les programmes de surveillance et de contrôle doivent cibler davantage toutes les zones possibles d’introduction de ce vecteur, en particulier les entreprises du commerce international des pneumatiques et des plantes ornementales telle que le Lucky Bambou. Ces programmes doivent également être appliqués durant toute la saison d’activité d’Ae. albopictus, sous une logique de lutte anti-vectorielle intégrée (10). A cet effet, l’appel aux moyens de lutte mécanique et les traitements larvicides sont fortement recommandés. Le recours aux traitements adulticides cependant, sera justifié uniquement en cas d’abondance de l’espèce due à de nouvelles réintroductions. Conclusion Les réintroductions d’Ae. albopictus en Belgique via l’importation de pneus usagés, l’environnement favorable à son installation et la confirmation régulière de cas importés du chikungunyia rendent la Belgique vulnérable aux risques d’une transmission autochtone de cette maladie infectieuse. Vu que plusieurs pays d'Europe de l'Ouest connaissent actuellement des introductions répétées d'Ae. albopictus sur leurs territoires, la mobilisation et la coordination des surveillances entomologiques entre ces pays - y compris la Belgique - sont devenues plus que nécessaires afin de traquer toutes les voies potentielles de réintroductions. Compte tenu du grand pouvoir adaptatif et invasif d'Ae. albopictus, il est recommandé d’agir rapidement et efficacement pour éliminer cette espèce avant son installation et sa dissémination ; ces mesures permettraient ainsi de réduire le risque de transmission des arboviroses en Belgique.
