Ecological Selectivity

Three yellow adhesive traps had been installed (double Biocontrole face of 25 cm X 9,5 cm) in each one of the genotypes: Supreme ruby (red), Red IAC-4, Rich, Paluma UNESP (red), Saito (red), Supreme and Kioshi 3 (red) totalizing 21 traps, in the period of June of 2009 to the June of 2010. These had been located about two meters of the ground, in the shade, the south quadrant of the pantry of the goiabeira and had been changed each 15 days continuously. Each removed trap of the field was conditioned in a lead folder of plastic and to the Laboratory of Ecological Selectivity of the Department of Fitossanidade, where the evaluations had been made. The insects had been identified and registered for specimen captured in fiches of laboratory for date of sampling. The meteorological data had been supplied by the Rank Meteorological of the Experimental Farm of the APT Pindorama-SP, located about 800 meters of the place of the experiment. With the gotten data the linear correlations between Scymnus and the meteorological factors had been calculated simple: minimum, average and maximum temperature (centigrade degrees) and pluviomtrica precipitation (mm). RESULTS AND QUARREL In the complex of collected natural enemy arthropods in the traps during the accomplishment of the experiment, had been distinguished specimens of Scymnus spp., Azia luteipes, Formicidae, Polibia spp., Aracnidae, sanguineous Cycloneda and Chysopidae. Quantitatively, Scymnus spp was the specimen collected in bigger number. Parajulle & Slosser (2003), that they had carried through an experiment with cotton in the state of the Texas, to monitor natural plagues and enemies, had also observed that the specimens most joined had been Scymnus spp. In the one In the conditions of the State of So Paulo, Pazini (2005), with intention to compare diverse strategies of integrated handling of plagues of the goiabeira, based in the tactics of population monitoramento and in the selectivity of insecticides, also it observed that Scymnus spp.
