16 Apr Abstract. Bactericera (Paratrioza) cockerelli (Šulc) (Hemiptera: Triozidae) is a native American psyllid species that was first reported in New. Bactericera cockerelli is found primarily on plants within the family Solanaceae. It attacks, reproduces, and develops on a variety of cultivated and weedy plant. General information about Bactericera cockerelli (PARZCO).

The psyllid attacks, reproduces and develops on a variety of cultivated and weedy plant species Essig, ; Knowlton and Thomas, ; Pletsch, ; Jensen, ; Wallis,including crop plants such as potato Solanum tuberosumtomato Solanum lycopersicon bactericeraa, pepper Capsicum annuumeggplant Solanum melongena and tobacco Nicotiana tabacum as well as non-crop species such as nightshade Solanum spp. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization, Cooper et al.

Consequently, studies have been undertaken to evaluate the use of a mesh cover as a mechanical barrier for B. This table does not include results from the historic commercial seed lots and wild cocmerelli of Monger and Jeffries These descriptors, referred to as haplotypes, are consistent with biological differences psyllid vector and plant covkerelli and geographic distribution between these Ca.


Global Perspectives on Biology and Management [ed. A USA study on potatoes showed that if the psyllids are free from the bacterium, the plants will recover when the psyllids are removed.

Description Top of page B. A brief history on the taxonomy and nomenclature of Bactericera cockerelli was recently provided by Butler and Trumble Insect Pests of Potato: John Anderson for information about the effect of the bacterium on quality of potato tubers. Encyrtidaewas described from B. Repellency of a kaolin particle film to potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli Hemiptera: However, it breeds poorly on some host plants and does not breed at all on other plant species in these families.

Pitman, personal communication and transmission in the plant is initially vertical, very likely because of genetic differences of ancestral lines. Eggs hatch days after oviposition Pletsch, ; Wallis, ; Capinera, ; Abdullah, Plant Disease, 94 3: Weed control could thus decrease pathogen reservoirs, decrease overwintering places for the vector, and perhaps also decrease vector populations and prevent vector movement.

Since its arrival in New Zealand, the psyllid was thought to transmit and spread a phytoplasma disease in potato crops, but this is now thought to be transmitted only by leaf hoppers.

Further evidence that zebra chip potato disease in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas is associated with Bactericera cockerelli.
