BARZOTTO, Ionete Lúcia Milani  e  ALVES, Luis Francisco Angeli. Bioecology and management of Gyropsylla spegazziniana in yerba mate. Arq. Inst. Biol. [online]. 2013, vol.80, n.4, pp.457-464. ISSN 1808-1657.

Yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis St. Hil.) composes one of the oldest and more characteristic agribusiness segments of southern Brazil, composing a very important socioeconomic activity. In order to provide the market with yerba mate derivatives, it was necessary to reforest areas with this species, which simplified the ecosystem and generated impacts that favored some species of phytophagous insects, and then they acquired blight status. In this context, we indicate Gyropsylla spegazziniana (Hemiptera, Psyllidae) (Lizer e Treles) by the severity of the damage. There is no registered insecticide to control this pest in Brazil, and several studies point out to handling the population of this blight. The objective of this review is to gather information on bioecology and alternatives to control this insect in order to explain the complexity of pest control in yerba mate agroecosystem.
