Abstract Title

Copulation Duration and Adult Emergence Rates in the Potato Psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli​

Additional Funding Sources

The project described was supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Grant No. P20GM103408.

Abstract

The potato psyllid fig 1c is a pest which causes destruction and economic loss for the potato Industry. The purpose of this study was to provide a better understanding of the reproductive biology of potato psyllids, Bactericera cockerelli, (Hemiptera: Triozidae). The length of copulation and the emergence times of females versus males have not been previously reported. This experiment will give a better framework of potato psyllid reproduction and development, which will be useful for future research.
