Abstract
The release of parasitoids in commercial vegetable greenhouses is a common practice associated with the integrated pest management (IPM) programmes on important pests of pepper and tomato in southeastern Spain. Aphidius colemani Viereck and Eretmocerus mundus Mercet are two of the most representative parasitoids used as biological control agents (BCAs) primarily against aphids and whiteflies, respectively. The macrocyclic lactone emamectin benzoate (4?-deoxy-4?-methylamino-4?-epiavermectin B1 benzoate), an insecticide derived from the avermectin family of natural products, is being developed for controlling lepidopteran pests on a range of vegetable and other crops in Europe. In this study, the compatibility of emamectin benzoate with A. colemani and Er. mundus was determined. Under greenhouse conditions, emamectin benzoate at the highest recommended concentration (14.25 mg L-1) did not diminish A. colemani population densities if applied 1 day before the introduction of the arthropod (exposure to 1-day old residues). Similarly, emamectin benzoate was compatible with Er. mundus if a direct spray application was used on developed populations.
