Abstract
Biological Control is considered nowadays as a key tool in Sustainable Agriculture and in Almeria, Southeastern Spain, control of pepper pests under plastic greenhouses, currently involves the uses of this technique applied either alone or together with chemical control. This work describes the trail carried out in a commercial greenhouse trying to ascertain the compatibility of two modern and theoretically selective pesticides, applied at the maximum field rate, with two important natural enemies in the crop: the anthocorid bug Orius laevigatus,wich preys on the trips Frankliniella Occidentalis (Pergande) and the phytoseiid mite Amblyseius swirskii, natural enemy of the whitefly Bemisa tabaci (Gennadius). The tested compounds were the moulting accelerating Methoxifenozide (included in annex I of EU directive 91/414/EEC) and the systemic pyridinecarboxamide Flonicamid which immediately suppresses the feeding of sucking insects (with requested inclusion). Based in the results, both natural enemies were homogeneously distributed in the greenhouse before pesticide application and their numbers per plant were not decreasesd after treatment(between 2 and 30 days after).Consequently, both pesticides are compatible with the two natural enemies studied.
