Taking advantage of the recent publication from our group applying network analyses, I would like to present a last year publication in the Pest Management Science journal. We evaluated differential expression in the transcriptome of both midgut and fat body larval tissues of the two strains of the FAW reared on either DIMBOA‐enriched artificial diet …

This publication in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) – Gene Regulatory Mechanisms is part of Natália Murad’s PhD in Universidade Estadual de Campinas, in Brazil, under mine and Dr. Marcelo Brandão’s supervision. A dataset of gene expression from FAW was used to understand how gene regulation is related to larval host plant preference. Transcriptomic data …

The migration of the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) is of topical interest because of its recent introduction and rapid dissemination throughout the Eastern Hemisphere. This study compares fall armyworm from island and mainland locations in Ecuador to estimate migration behavior. The Galápagos Islands is a province of Ecuador whose mainland coast lies approximately 1000 km …

Second generation Bt crops (insect resistant crops carrying Bacillus thuringiensis genes) combine more than one gene coding for insecticidal proteins in the same plant to provide a better control of agricultural pests. Some of the new combinations involve co-expression of cry and vip genes. Since Cry and Vip proteins have different midgut targets and possibly …

Cultural method of pest control make a less favourable environment to the pest and make a more favourable for their natural enemies. This method is the most widely adopted approaches in integrated pest management. As a part of cultural control, spraying sugar solution (10-20%) increases the population of certain parasitoids such as Campoletis flavicincta (Hymenoptera:Ichneumonidae), …

By: Alice dos Reis Fortes; Aloisio Coelho Jr.; José Roberto Postali Parra A possible natural enemy for biological control of the Fall Armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith, 1797) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), is the wasp Telenomus remus Nixon, 1937 (Hymenoptera: Platygastridae), an egg parasite used …

By: Pedro Holtz de Paula, Aloisio Coelho Jr., José Roberto P. Parra   The parasitoid wasp Telenomus remus is well known in the field of biological control. It is a potential agent to control Spodoptera frugiperda, with a few important examples of its use in South American countries (Colombia and Venezuela). In recent decades, several …

By: Marilia Corrêa Melo, Aloisio Coelho Jr., José R. P. Parra   The main hosts of Teleomus remus Nixon, 1937 (Hymenoptera: Plastygastridae) are eggs of lepidopterans of the family Noctuidae, especially species of Spodoptera. Eggs of Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith, 1797) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Spodoptera litura (Fabricius, 1775) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) are the most frequently …
