invertebrate pest

Catalogue: GRDC Media
While decent autumn rains have been welcomed by many grain growers in the southern cropping region, they have also heralded the arrival of numerous invertebrate pests... Mites, earwigs, fleas, weevils, slugs and snails are appearing in agricultural areas of Victoria and southern New South Wales, according to the PestFacts south-eastern electronic news service which is supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... Redlegged earth mites are now predicted to be hatching in many cooler regions, early sightings of blue oat mites (Riverina and north-east Victoria) and Bryobia mites (Riverina) are also being reported, as are earwigs (NSW south-west Slopes), lucerne flea (north-east Victoria and Riverina), weevils (NSW Central Tablelands), black keeled slugs (NSW Riverina) and small pointed snails (western Victoria)...

Pest species within the grains industry pose a serious threat as farming practices change... To avoid costs associated with crop failure and increases in pesticide usage, potential pest species must be identified and their biology determined so effective control strategies can be devised... For example, Balaustium mites were found to be 272 times more tolerant than RLEM for methidathion, 260 times more tolerant of bifenthrin and 129 times more tolerant to omethoate compared with RLEM. Bryobia mites exposed to methidathion were shown to have 64-fold greater tolerance compared with RLEM and an 11-fold greater tolerance to bifenthrin...
