Özet

The effect of six citrus and five non-citrus host plants on the developmental period of immature stages of Parabemisia myricae (Kuwana) (Homoptera, Aleyrodidae) was studied in the laboratory. The developmental time on the citrus host plants from egg stage to adult was 16.1; 16.1; 19.2; 20.0; 24.4 and 29.3 days on lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, sweet-orange, sour-orange,and trifoliate, respectively. The developmental time on the non-citrus host plants was 15.7; 20.4; 20.8; 23.8 and 26.4 days on vine, peach, rose, mulberry, and pomegranate, respectively. The mortality rate during egg stage was lowest on lemon and rose and was highest on sweet-orange and peach. The total mortality rate of all immature stages was lowest on sour-orange and vine but highest on trifoliate and peach.
