Abstract

YAMAMOTO, Pedro T. et al. Population fluctuation of sharpshooters (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) in young citrus groves. Neotrop. Entomol. [online]. 2001, vol.30, n.1, pp. 175-177. ISSN 1519-566X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-566X2001000100027.

The purpose of this research was to study the population fluctuation of sharpshooters in young citrus groves. The sharpshooters population was monitored using yellow stick traps. The most abundant species was Bucephalogonia xanthophis (Berg). Low populations of Acrogonia sp., Dilobopterus costalimai Young and Oncometopia facialis (Signoret) were detected throughout the trial.

Keywords : Insecta; Citrus sinensis; yellow stick trap.
