Biology, Ecology, and Host Plants of Lygus Lineolaris and Lygus Hesperus

P.B. Goodell


Lygus sp. is a key pest throughout the cotton belt, attacking fruiting buds prior to flower. While the severity of the problem is dictated by seasonal conditions, these insects are present every year. A review of the literature indicates that L. lineolaris and L. hesperus are similar in their habitats and ecological niche. Regional differences are key in determining the degree of severity which they cause a cotton crop.
