Here we report the recent phytosanitary issues caused by conspicuous outbreaks of indigenous or exotic phytophagous insects on crop systems of Southern Italy. In particular, we focus on insects affecting the industries of soft-skinned fruits (spotted wing Drosophila), of citrus (whiteflies, scales, aphids), of olives (spittlebugs) and of tomato (South American tomato pinworm), as well as on ornamental plants in the urban environment (red palm weevil). We then provide a brief overview on the current knowledge of their sustainable control methods

Abstract

Here we report the recent phytosanitary issues caused by conspicuous outbreaks of indigenous or exotic phytophagous insects on crop systems of Southern Italy. In particular, we focus on insects affecting the industries of soft-skinned fruits (spotted wing Drosophila), of citrus (whiteflies, scales, aphids), of olives (spittlebugs) and of tomato (South American tomato pinworm), as well as on ornamental plants in the urban environment (red palm weevil). We then provide a brief overview on the current knowledge of their sustainable control methods
