Synergistic effects of vibrations and plant-derived products (EO+PE) reduce greenhouse whitefly infestations more effectively than separate application of plant-derived products and vibrations. This synergetic approach also allows to reduce the total number of EO+PE treatments per year and even has a stronger effect than that of a pyrethroid insecticide used as a positive control.

Summary translation

Die synergetische Wirkung von Vibrationen und pflanzlichen Produkten (EO+PE) reduziert den Befall mit Mottenschildläusen im Gewächshaus wirksamer als die getrennte Anwendung von pflanzlichen Produkten und Vibrationen. Dieser synergetische Ansatz ermöglicht es auch, die Gesamtzahl der EO+PE-Behandlungen pro Jahr zu reduzieren und hat sogar eine stärkere Wirkung als ein Pyrethroid-Insektizid, das als Positivkontrolle eingesetzt wird.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:The presented methods significantly reduce the greenhouse whitefly fitness and infestation rates.
What problem does the tool address?:The greenhouse whitefly, Trialeurodes vaporariorum causes direct damage to plants by piercing their tissues, as well as indirect damage, by transmitting viruses. Mineral oils are usually applied to control the greenhouse whitefly but should be replaced with more sustainable solutions.
What solution does the tool offer?:The combined use of disruptive vibrations, orange essential oils (EO) and other plant extracts (PE) significantly reduces the greenhouse whitefly fitness and infestation rates.
