The bionematicide MAJESTENE, which can be applied at planting as a soil and seed drench and in-season in-furrow through chemigation, provides long nematode and wireworm
reduction for improved quality and yield.
Spinosad interacts synergistically with the insect pathogen Metarhizium anisopliae against the exitic wireworm
Agriotes lineatus and Agriotes obscurus (Coleoptera: Elatridae).
Furlan L, Bonetto C, Finotto A, Lazzeri L, Malaguti L, Patalano G, Parker W (2010) The efficacy of biofumigant meals and plants to control wireworm
In response to a request from local growers, AHDB's Dr Bill Parker will discuss the practical management of Wireworm
Three of the most common threats to potatoes are pests - potato cyst eelworm, slugs and wireworm
. Eelworms are minute worm-like creatures which attack the roots, causing plants to wilt and present reddish-brown cysts on the roots.
Gut bacteria associated with the pacific coast wireworm
, Limoniuscanus, inferred from 16s rDNA sequences and their implications for control.
Use of Japanese-beetle traps to monitor flight of the Pacific coast wireworm
, Limonius cams (Coleoptera: Elateridae), and effects of trap height and color.
Early summer can see infestations of carrot fly, while wireworm
will make cavities in root veg and potato tubers and cabbage white larvae play havoc with your brassicas.
But it is the poor old centipede that gets the blame for this, often pounded to death by a heavy garden boot when mistaken for a wireworm
. Centipedes are long, yellow or orange creatures with narrow bodies and many legs, wriggling furiously in the soil.
Smith), when a drought period occurs, but it disappears with the rains; wireworm
(probably Limonious sp.) causes problems since the plant germinates until it reaches a height of 20-30cm, and it is fought through tillage, because in this way the worms are exposed to birds and the cold temperatures of winter; white grubs (Phyllophaga spp.) is fought in the same way that wireworms
; although granary weevil (Sitophilus granarius L.) damages a lot the stored grain, it is not fought.
A It probably is caused by wireworm
which burrow into the potato.
Some genotypes showed more tolerance to the most damaging pests, the wireworm
(Conoderns sp.) and white grubs (Phyllophaga ephilida).
