Cover Story (view full-size image): Stephanitis pyrioides is an important pest of azalea plants in the eastern region of the USA, whereas in western USA, S. pyrioides is now established in Oregon and Washington, where it threatens azalea production in nurseries and is widespread in landscapes. S. pyrioides are managed using neonicotinoids in nurseries as well as landscapes. Because neonicotinoid use can pose a threat to beneficial arthropods, consumers demand neonicotinoid-free plants from nurseries and reduced use of neonicotinoid insecticides in landscapes. The data show that transovarial activity was elicited in adults of S. pyrioides when novaluron was applied on the adaxial leaf surface. Novaluron through transovarial activity offers an alternative option in using neonicotinoid insecticides for S. pyrioides management. View this paper.
