Crop associations can have beneficial effects on the control of insect pests. This study was conducted in the Shandong province (China) to assess the impact of potatoes and peas association on the populations of aphids and their natural enemies. Observations on potato plants and trapping (yellow pan traps) were performed. During the season, the degree of infestation didn’t differ significantly between the association and the pure stand. However, one week after the aphids abundance peak, predators and parasitoid mummies were significantly more abundant in the association compared with the pure stand. Trapping give a more general idea about the richness and diversity of adult natural enemies present in the environment. The parasitoid specie Aphidius gifuensis (Ashmead) was the most abundant among beneficials. Propylea japonica (Thunberg) and Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) were prevalent among predators. Few hoverflies and lacewings were trapped. This study contributes to better evaluate the potential of crop associations as an alternative method to control aphids without insecticides in this region.

Crop associations have several advantages when the plant species and the crop production methods, including the harvesting, are well selected. This preliminary study was conducted in the Shandong province (China) to better characterize the effect of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)/oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) and wheat/pea (Pisum sativum L.) associations on the aphid and aphidophagous beneficial populations. Aphids observed on wheat tillers were more abundant in the pure stand of wheat during the two weeks prior to their population peak, compared with crop associations. Considering the aphidophagous beneficials, more ladybirds were observed in the associations, compared with the pure crop stand. Yellow pan traps were also used to assess the diversity and abundance of adult beneficial species. The parasitoid species Aphidius gifuensis (Ashmead) was prevalent. Among predators, Propylea japonica (Thunberg) and Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) were the most abundant species. This study contributes to better understand the potential of crop associations with wheat as a sustainable method to control aphid populations in this region of China. [less ▲]

Organic farming has been suggested to enhance beneficial species abundance and diversity in agrosystem habitats. In this study, the abundance of aphid predators was compared in organic and conventional corn and broad bean fields during a two-year inventory. In both farming strategies, there were no differences between species diversity. Five aphid predator species were mainly observed: Coccinella septempunctata L. 1758 (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), Propylea quatuordecimpunctata (L. 1758) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), Harmonia axyridis Pallas 1773 (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), Chrysoperla carnea (Stephens 1836) (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) and Episyrphus balteatus (De Geer 1776) (Diptera: Syrphidae). Differences in abundance of aphidophagous species between conventional and organic crop fields were observed even if not always in favour of the latter condition. The abundance of the five above- mentioned aphidophagous species varied for the most part according to almost all the observed parameters, including sampled year, crop and agricultural practices. In conclusion, our findings do not support organic practices in corn and broad bean as key options to increase the biodiversity and abundance of aphid natural enemies. [less ▲]

Within the framework of research aimed at developing biological control in vegetable crops in Shandong province in China, a pest and associated auxiliary entomophagous insects monitoring was conducted to determine entomological groups of agricultural interest and compare them to the situation in Belgium. The diversity and abundance of the entomofauna were assessed in potato and zucchini fields between May 9th and June 13th, 2011, using yellow traps and in situ observations on host plants. A total of 36 466 and 34 806 insects were trapped or observed on the plants in zucchini and potato fields, respectively. Ten orders and more than sixty families in each crop were identified. Aphids widely predominated in the traps and exerted a strong pressure on both crops early in the season. Other families of pests have been identified but no specific pest of these two crops and the investigated region is among the collections. [less ▲]

Wheat is one of the most cultivated cereals in the world. However, this crop is under attack by many pests and pathogens. In order, to avoid the massive use of the chemicals, other cropping systems semiochemicals can be adopted for a better management of the pests. This study aims to evaluate the use of three semiochemicals ((E)-β-farnesene (EBF), garlic extract and (Z)-3-hexenol) and paraffin on the entomofauna of wheat. This study was conducted at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech’s experimental farm for nine weeks. Two techniques were used for collecting insects: yellow traps and visual monitoring. The collected insects were sorted, counted and classified taxonomically to the family or species level. This study highlighted the presence of a great diversity of families with EBF treatment and a better proportion of pest and beneficial insects with the smallest quantity of Aphididae. The latter are the most abundant pests on the entire field whatever the considered treatment. The main encountered pests are from Curculionidae, Cecidomyiidae and Chloropidae. Although Chrysomelidae was not high, some damages were observed at the field. [less ▲]

Borocera cajani Vinson 1863 (Lasiocampidae) or "Landibe" is a wild silk-moth, which silk is the most widely used in the textile industry in Madagascar. This endemic species is found throughout the island, but colonizes especially the "Tapia" forest in the central highlands. The species has an important economic, culinary and cultural role in the Island. It is polyphagous and frequents several host plants. The daily activity of the larvae of B. cajani has been studied in their natural habitat on two native host plants of the "Tapia" forest: Uapaca bojeri Baillon 1874 (Phyllanthaceae) and Aphloia theiformis Bennett 1840 (Flacourtiaceae). Continuous observations during 24 hours on 54 individuals of the last instar of B. cajani have been conducted. Daily period of activity were found to vary according to the host plant species. Larvae feeding on U. bojeri allocate 6.9% of their time to feed, while the larvae feeding on A. theiformis spend 3.3% of their time. Only 1.0% (15 minutes) and 0.7% (10 minutes) of the observed period was allocated to movement, in the larvae feeding on U. bojeri and A. theiformis, respectively. Larvae observed on A. theiformis took an average of 3.1 ± 0.2 meals a day, which lasted 15.4 ± 1.3 min. Larvae observed on U. bojeri took an average of 1.9 ± 0.1 meals a day, which lasted 54.8 ± 5.2 min. [less ▲]

Jatropha curcas L. is a shrub belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family. It is cultivated in Africa as living fence, and for its seeds, rich in oil that can be used as Biofuel. The inventory of insects associated with these shrubs present in Maradi (South-eastern Niger) was conducted by combining beating, trapping and visual observation methods. The inventories were carried out from July to September 2010 and were repeated at the same period in 2011. A total of 1761 insects were collected on J. curcas. These insects belong to 45 different species belonging to 30 families. Coleopterans are the most numerous with 32% of captured insects, followed by Hymenopterans (24%), Orthopterans (14%), Dipterans (13%), Heteropterans (10%) and Isopterans (4%). Among the captured insects, only Heteropterans, Orthopterans and some Coleopterans can cause damage to J. curcas in Niger. [less ▲]

Borocera cajani Vinson (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae) is a silk moth endemic to Madagascar that is currently used to produce silk textiles. This silk moth is polyphagous and colonizes forests situated in the central highlands, mainly constituted by Tapia trees (Uapaca bojeri). Two host plants are commonly used by the caterpillar of this moth species: Tapia and Voafotsy (Aphloia theiformis). In this work we have evaluated parameters of different stage (survival rate, development duration, weight and size, fecundity…) of B. cajani on both host plants. We have observed a 30% higher survival rate on U. bojeri. Larval and pupae duration were shorter on U. bojeri (64,8 ± 1,5 days) than on A. theiformis (87,4 ± 2,0 days). Cocoons were bigger when obtained from larvae fed on U. bojeri. This plant is therefore better for the development of B. cajani and should be used in intensive rearing of this silk moth. [less ▲]

The aim of this study was to evaluate the diversity and abundance of aphids and aphidophagous beneficials in courgettes and potato fields in the Shandong province, East of China. The assessment of aphid and related beneficial populations was conducted between May 9th and June 13th, 2011, using yellow traps and in situ observations on plants. A total of 53,206 insects were trapped and 35,144 observed on the plants. Aphids widely predominated in the traps and exerted a strong pressure on both crops early in the season. Two main species were identified on the plants, namely Aphis gossypii on the courgettes and Myzus persicae on the potatoes. Ladybirds were the most abundant aphidophagous predators, especially Coccinella septempunctata on the courgettes and Propylea japonica on the potato fields, the first one being earlier than the second. Only few hoverflies and lacewings were captured. Microhymenoptera appeared later in the season. The Aphidius gifuensis species represented the majority of trapped Braconidae, while the family Aphelinidae contained the largest number of individuals in the aphidiphagous. [less ▲]

La comparaison entre les disponibilités alimentaires du milieu et le régime alimentaire de Corvus corax (Linné, 1758) dans la région de Guelt-es-Stel montre qu’en fonction de la présence de l’espèce dans le régime alimentaire et sur le terrain, les valeurs de l’indice d’Ivlev (Ii) varient entre –1 et +1. Les espèces qui ont une valeur de Ii = +1 sont recherchées par le prédateur. Ils sont au nombre de 116 sur 167 espèces. Les espèces-proies les plus sélectionnées par le Grand Corbeau appartiennent surtout à la classe des Insecta (AR % = 80,8 %). Ces espèces semblent influencer le comportement du prédateur grâce à certains de leurs caractères particuliers. Les couleurs contrastées noir et blanc des élytres du coléoptère Anthia (Thermophilium) sexmaculata (Fabricius 1787) ou vert noir et blanc de Cicindela (Lophyra) flexuosa (Fabricius 1787), la teinte blanche de l’escargot Sphincterochila candidissima (Draparaud 1758), la brillance de la cuticule de Chrysomela bicolor (Linné 1758), de Messor structor (Latreille 1798) et de Messor barbara (Linné 1767), ainsi que la grande taille comme celles du criquet Euryparyphes quadridentatus (Brisout 1852) attirent l’attention du Grand Corbeau (Corvus corax). Par contre, les espèces qui ont une valeur de Ii = -1 sont présentes sur le terrain mais ne font pas partie du menu trophique de Grand Corbeau. C’est le cas de 27 espèces notamment Tetramorium sp. Mayr 1855 (Ouvrières) et Tapinoma nigerrimum (Nyl., 1886) (Ouvrières) qui se caractérisent par la petitesse de leurs tailles (2 à 5 mm). Bien plus, les espèces qui font partie du régime alimentaire du Grand Corbeau et qui sont absentes sur le terrain, en apparence du moins, ou peu représentées dans la nature, correspondent à des valeurs positives comme Messor arenarius (Fabricius 1787) (Ii = +0,66) ou Tetramorium biskrensis kahenae (Menozzi 1934) (Ii = +0,49).

An inventory of the Coccinellidae present in the collection of the Department of functional and evolutionary Entomology (ULg - Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech) was performed on the period extending from 2001 to 2009. This collection is essentially made up of insects collected by first year students. The aim of this work is to assess the evolution of the species belonging to this family with special interest in their relative amount and the species richness. This study was focused on the data from Wallonia and Brussels-Capital Region (Belgium), not enough insects having been collected in Flanders. Among the identified individuals, 27 species were observed, including 21 belonging to the subfamily of Coccinellinae, 2 to Epilachninae and 4 to Chilocorinae. Most of the species are native to Belgium. However, Harmonia axyridis (Pallas 1773), an exotic species coming from the South-East of Asia, was introduced in Belgium in 1997. This alien ladybird was firstly collected by the students in 2002 and the amount of collected individuals does not cease increasing until 2009. By contrast, a decrease of species richness, as well as the relative amount of Adalia bipunctata (L. 1758), Propylea quatuordecimpunctata (L. 1758) and Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata (L. 1758), is highlighted. The link between these evolutions is discussed. [less ▲]

L’entomologie forensique est une discipline des sciences forensiques qui étudie les insectes et d’autres arthropodes dans un contexte médico-légal. Pourtant, l’idée d’utiliser les insectes en criminalistique n’est pas neuve, déjà en 1894 Mégnin nous parlait de la « faune des cadavres ». Depuis les années 2000, l’entomologie forensique connais un grand essor en Europe, notamment avec la création en 2002 de L’Association Européenne pour l’Entomologie Forensique (EAFE) qui regroupe l’ensemble des scientifiques spécialisés dans ce domaine. Actuellement, les insectes nécrophages ne sont plus exclusivement utilisés pour estimer la période écoulée entre le décès d’une victime et la découverte du corps ou intervalle post- mortem. Ils peuvent aussi apporter des informations dans les cas d’abus et de négligences chez les enfants ou les personnes âgées, sur les causes de la mort, l’identité des victimes, etc. Malgré ces progrès, cette discipline connait certaines lacunes, il y a très peu de données sur les Coléoptères nécrophages, sur la décomposition en milieu marin, des corps enterrés, etc. Cependant, de nouvelles techniques se mettent en place et permettent d’améliorer les méthodes entomologiques existantes.

Many animals respond to predation by releasing alarm signals that warn other individuals of the presence of danger in order to reduce the success of predators. While alarm signals may be visual or auditory as well as chemical, alarm pheromones are common, especially among insects and aquatic organisms.

Tetranychus urticae est un acarien extrêmement polyphage, reconnu comme un ravageur majeur pour une grande quantité de plantes cultivées. Cet acarien cause d’importants dégâts sur agrumes et principalement sur citronnier, se traduisant par de lourdes pertes économiques. L’objectif de ce travail est de mettre en évidence les propriétés acaricides d'extraits de plantes sur T. urticae. Douze extraits (macérats) issus de 12 plantes et deux acaricides de synthèse (Spirodiclofen et Fenbutatin oxyde) ont été choisis pour les essais en verger de citronniers. Ces résultats montrent que trois macérats extraits d’Allium sativum, A. cepa et Deverra scoparia présentent des propriétés acaricides comparables aux deux acaricides de synthèse qui sont les produits de référence. Cette efficacité perdure jusqu’à plus de 15 jours. Le macérat de D. scoparia a présenté l’activité acaricide la plus toxique et la plus rapide sur la population de T. urticae, 21 jours après traitement par rapport aux autres extraits et par rapport aux produits de référence. Ce travail permettra de mettre en place un programme de lutte intégrée visant le contrôle efficace des tétranyques s’attaquant aux citronniers. Les expériences en verger ont démontré que les extraits végétaux ont un effet acaricide pour T.urticae. [less ▲]

La lutte contre les pucerons de manière biologique consiste entre autre à utiliser des insectes prédateurs de pucerons tels que les coccinelles. En Belgique un des auxiliaires le plus utilisé est la coccinelle à deux points (Adalia bipunctata) mais en 1997, les horticulteurs ont introduit la coccinelle asiatique (Harmonia axyridis) afin de lutter plus efficacement contre les pucerons. Cette coccinelle invasive s'est rapidement répandue dans toute la Belgique et à travers l'Europe. Afin d'évaluer son impact sur l'entomofaune des milieux agricoles, nous avons réalisé un inventaire des aphidiphages présent sur 10 sites réparti en Wallonie. Deux méthodes d'échantillonnage ont été utilisées: (1) l'utilisation de pièges collant et (2) l'observation visuelle dans des quadras d'1m². Après 10 semaines d'inventaire, nous pouvons conclure que pour l'année 2009, la coccinelle asiatique est la coccinelle la plus abondante dans les agro-écosystèmes wallons. Les cultures préférentielles dans lesquelles la coccinelle invasive a été la plus abondante sont la pomme de terre biologique et le maïs. Culture où la quantité de puceron n'est pas forcement la plus élevée. La période de reproduction de la coccinelle asiatique se situe à la mi-juillet, période d'abondance de proies dans les cultures étudiées. [less ▲]
