effects of southern highbush blueberry cultivar and treatment threshold on flower thrips populations.in florida, southern highbush (shb) blueberries (vaccinium corymbosum l. x vaccinium darrowi camp) are grown for a highly profitable early season fresh market. flower thrips are the key pest of shb blueberries, and frankliniella bispinosa (morgan) is the most common species found. flower thrips injure blueberry flowers by feeding and ovipositing in all developing tissues. these injuries can lead to scarring of developing fruit. the objectives of this study were to determine the relationship betw ...201222606818
managed bumble bees (bombus impatiens) (hymenoptera: apidae) caged with blueberry bushes at high density did not increase fruit set or fruit weight compared to open pollination.highbush blueberry (vaccinium corymbosum l.) is an important crop grown throughout florida. currently, most blueberry growers use honey bees (apis mellifera l.) to provide pollination services for highbush blueberries even though bumble bees (bombus spp.) have been shown to be more efficient at pollinating blueberries on a per bee basis. in general, contribution of bumble bees to the pollination of commercial highbush blueberries in florida is unknown. herein, we determined if managed bumble bee ...201728334127
