Abstract:   (24569 Views)
In 1998 and 1999, adult population density of pistachio psylla and its sex ratio were determined weekly in two orchards with yellow sticky board traps and limb jarring. Also egg and nymphal population was determined on the leaves. By studying the seasonal population fluctuaions, the efficiencies of the two methods were compared. Meanwhile, using yellow sticky boards, diurnal activity of adults was investigated. Adult pistachio psylla became active during flower and leaf bud opening. Adult capture with both methods showed a high correlation with egg and unwinged nymphal density counts, with at least five peaks (maximum six). Two peaks occurred during spring and densities were much lower in comparison with those of later generations. First adult capture was observed on yellow traps. Yellow traps were found to be a better method than the limb jarring method for the study of seasonal population from adult captures. Sex ratio was equal through out the growing season and during the warmer or cooler months of the year. However, more males were attracted to traps and more females were captured with limb jarring early in the season. Peak activites during day occurred through 9-16 p. m.
