EFFECT OF HOST PLANT TYPE ON FEEDING, OVIPOSITION AND SURVIVAL OF Liriomyza huidobrensis (BLANCHARD) , Liriomyza sativae (BLANCHARD) AND Liriomyza trifolii (BURGESS) (DIPTERA: AGROMYZIDEA) LE

ABSTRACT

Liriomyza huidobrensis (Blanchard), Liriomyza sativae (Blanchard) and Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess) are multivoltine flies, which are highly polyphagous, prolific and invasive. They are currently important pests in areas where horticultural crops are grown in Kenya. Both the adult flies and larvae cause considerable damage to crops. Infestation results to reduced photosynthetic potential of plants, which translates to reduction of the expected yield and loss of the aesthetic value. In addition, these pests are of quarantine importance and stringent measures have been put in place to prevent movement of infested plant materials in the export markets. Controlling these agromyzid pests is difficult. Most of the chemicals available locally are ineffective and highly toxic to natural parasitoids. Economically important crops in Kenya such as French beans, snow peas, brassicas, tomatoes, potatoes among others, are at potential risk of infestation by these agromyzids.
