FARIAS, Paulo R S et al. Azteca barbifex Forel (Hymenoptera: Formicidae): potential pest of citrus crops in eastern Amazon. Neotrop. entomol. [online]. 2010, vol.39, n.6, pp.1056-1058. ISSN 1519-566X.

Damage caused by the ant Azteca barbifex (Forel) was identified in orange trees (Citrus sinensis), in Capitão Poço County, Guamá microregion, Pará State. The damage caused by the scraping of stems and branches lead to reduction in yield with subsequent death of the plant. These characteristics indicate A. barbifex as a potential pest of citrus crops in the eastern region of Amazon.

Palavras-chave : Ant; Citrus sinensis; monoculture.
