Pest arthropods in livestock systems can be classified taxonomically or according to their degree of association with the host (Lysyk and Moon 1994). CRC Press, Boca Raton, Fla. 245 pp. The degree of association with the host is a useful consideration because it determines the management approach. Unfortunately, there is no clear relationship between the degree of association with the host and the relationship between parasite density and production losses. Arthropod pests of livestock can be classified as: continuous ectoparasites. non-continuous ectoparasites.
A number of arthropod pests infest bell peppers seriously reducing both yields and the market value of the crop. Insects and mites often inflict a negative impact on pepper yield and quality by directly feeding on the plant and/or its fruits, and by vectoring destructive causal agents of diseases such as fungi and viruses. The cutworms (Agrotis sp. usually cut the stems of pepper seedlings just after transplanting, causing a great yield loss to the crop. View chapter Purchase book.
