AN OVERVIEW OF INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR PROTECTED ORNAMENTAL CROPS IN THE CANARY ISLANDS

A. Carnero Hernández, P. Pérez Padrón, P. Rosell García
The chief pests affected protected ornamental crops in the Canary Islands are Homoptera order (Coccids, Aphids, "white-flies") and some more specific species such as the "leaf-miner" Liriomyza trifolii Burgess as well as mites basically of the Tetranychus genus. Many of these are controlled spontaneously by their natural enemies.

Other species require more traditional biological control. Also discussed ares use of insecticides and cultural practices in conjunction with these natural enemies.
