Helicoverpa armigera Hübner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), the cotton bollworm were collected during Aug , in Paraná State (Londrina, Embrapa. Soybean. In March , the Old World bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner), was reported in Brazil (Embrapa, ). On that occasion, specimens were collected in. Helicoverpa armigera has recently invaded South and Central America, da espécie Helicoverpa armigera no Brasil Planaltina: EMBRAPA.

If it has not happened already, an increase in pheromone trapping surveillance around ports of entry and southern US cropping districts might appear warranted to enable biosecurity responses to be implemented as soon as possible. Implication for pest management.

Populations have been high there, impacting significantly on key crops such as corn, soybeans, tomatoes and cotton to name a few [ 5 ].

Here we refine and extend that model to alert biosecurity managers to the hellcoverpa for invasion, identifying areas that are suitable for establishment and those that are suitable for population growth during favourable seasons. In tropical areas the proportion of the population entering diapause is very helicovsrpa, and, rainfall and host plants permitting, populations breed year round [ 48 ].

Using the MapSpam data, H. Females can lay up to 3 eggs under laboratory conditions but in general potential fecundity lies in the range —1 and depends on the rearing host and ambient conditions [ 34 ].

It was in part to combat H.

In contrast, if only a simplified version of Ehlicoverpa is employed, H. The African honey bee: The CLIMEX model has not been calibrated for insect abundance or crop losses as a function of climate suitability as was done for Thaumetopoea pityocampa [ 70 ].

Where to from here? These semi-arid areas are now modelled as having a mildly positive Annual Growth Index GI Abut an unsuitable Ecoclimatic Index, implying that these areas can support ephemeral populations helkcoverpa favourable seasons or years [ 20 ]. It is also plausible that H.

Noctuidae under constant and alternating temperatures. Atmospheric scales of biotic dispersal. Niche model interpretation and limitations armjgera comparison to previous model Our CLIMEX model agrees with the available distribution data, development rate experiments, and phenological observations.

First record of Helicoverpa armigera Lepidoptera: The threshold of 10 for GI A was chosen arbitrarily as the minimum climate suitability that could produce noticeable pest impacts.

Journal of Applied Entomology. Potential global distribution of Helicoverpa armigeramodelled using CLIMEX, taking into account climate suitability, irrigation patterns, and the existence of suitable crop hosts.

Helicoverpa armigera is polyphagous; females lay eggs, and the caterpillar stage can survive and feed on a very wide range of host plant species [ 1819 ]. Journal hflicoverpa Economic Entomology. If the diurnal heat sum above the developmental base temperature is insufficient, an organism may be unable to generate or forage for sufficient energy resources to offset basal respiration losses, and their condition wanes slowly.


The importance of other transient migratory pests in this region, such as Diamondback moth Plutella xylostella [ 79 ] serves to underscore the potential pest impacts of transient pests originating in the southern United States and Mexico into these valuable high-latitude cropping regions. Thus, it is presently impossible heicoverpa estimate what fraction of the total value of production of the suitable crops in the USA might be at threat from H.

Yonow T, Sutherst RW. Data were extracted for the conterminous United States. The fit of the model was compared with results from Zalucki and Furlong [ 12 ], taking into account the use of a station-based dataset in [ 12 ] and a gridded climate dataset here, and the expected minor idiosyncrasies between datasets.

Recent research suggests that the pupal cold tolerance limits for H. However, it is essential to emphasize the importance of the adoption of Integrated Pest Management IPM philosophy, since improperly applied insecticides will exacerbate pest problem by eliminating the biological control agents and increase the production cost unnecessarily.

Insect resistance to Bt crops: Whilst this may also be true of H. Now there are two likely natural dispersal pathways, via the land bridge between North and South America, or via island-hopping across the Caribbean. Economic importance of Heliothis spp.
