Abstract:

Pentalonia nigronervosa (Coquerel) is a stenophagous species on banana Musa spp. The aphid is a major pest of banana in Israel, causing decline in the crop yield due to distortions of plant growth and sooty mould cover. The seasonal history of the aphid was studied in two banana growing conditions (open and netted plantations). The population density was determined by examining the aphid colonies and by setting up yellow sticky traps from August 2005 and August 2007. Aphid population annual trend was similar under open and netted banana plantation. The aphid population decreased from February to April, and during August, while from April and June, and October to December, the population steeply increased. These fluctuations are likely to be explained by the effect of temperature on the aphid. Aphids grown under a number of controlled temperature regimes in the laboratory, cease to develop at >30 °C and <10 °C. Based on laboratory observation it seems that the optimal (the highest reproduction rate in the shortest time) temperature for the development of the aphid is 28–25 °C. Ten ant species were found in association with the banana aphid in the coastal plain plantations; two or more ant species were usually found in a colony. The most common attendant was the ant Paratrechina longicornis. Several species of natural enemies, predators and parasitoids, were found in the aphid populations under natural conditions, while the most abundant were species of the family Coccinellidae. In general, these enemies are present in the plantations especially when the aphid population grows; however, their influence on the aphid population was not examined in this study. No doubt their presence is of importance in the plantation.
