Abstract
Biological control is nowadays the principal method of reducing reliance on pesticides in greenhouses and seasonal inoculative releases of different natural enemies are commonly used worldwide to reduce the key pest populations. However, natural enemies and selective pesticides must often coexist for the success of IPM programmes. This work describes a laboratory residual test to evaluate lethal and sublethal effects (mortality after 72 hour exposure to fresh residues and changes in beneficial capacity) of two modern pesticides included in annex I of the EU Directive 91/414/EEC (methoxyfenozide and abamectin) to adults of Eretmocerus mundus (Mercet), Orius laevigatus (Fieber) and Nesidiocoris tenuis Reuter. These natural enemies are important for the control of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius), and in addition, the mirid bug N. tenuis can also feed on the tomato borer Tuta absoluta (Meyrick). The results demonstrated the compatibility of methoxyfenozide with adults of the three species of natural enemies. In contrast, abamectin caused some direct mortality.
