Egg parasitoids attacking Cactoblastis
cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in North Florida.
Diel flight pattern and flight performance of Cactoblastis
cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) measured on a flight mill: influence of age, gender, mating status, and body size.
En esta contribucion se hace referencia a estas ultimas y se utilizara como ejemplo la feromona sexual de Cactoblastis
Biologia, historia, amenaza, monitoreo y control de la palomilla del nopal, Cactoblastis
By 1959, improvements in clearing and regrowth control and the successful introduction of Cactoblastis
cactorum to control prickly pear (Land Administration Commission 1968, 1978) led to the view that these lands had the greatest potential for primary production of any land in Queensland (Payne 1959; Skerman 1959).
In the 1930s CSIR and partners used larvae from the north Argentinean moth Cactoblastis
cactorum to eradicate prickly pear, which had overrun millions of acres of farmland in southern Queensland and northern New South Wales.
It quickly ran wild, overtaking the Australian desert, but was eventually checked by the introduction of the Cactoblastis
, a cactus-hungry Mexican moth.
For example, the cactus moth Cactoblastis
cactorum managed to spread on its own from Hawaii to all the other major Hawaiian islands (Tuduri et al.
1994), rotting process (the phytophagous moth, Cactoblastis
cactorum, is absent from Spain), and genetic background (e.
2005), the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) (USA) (Henneberry 2007), the cactus moth, Cactoblastis
cactorum (Berg) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) (USA) (Carpenter et al.
The individuals in the preserve have been severely impacted by caterpillars of the moth Cactoblastis
cactorum (Kass 1990, Robertson 1990).
The cactus moth, Cactoblastis
cactorum Berg (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), an invading potential pest of native Opuntia species in southeastern USA and Mexico, showed a mean fecundity of 119.
