native vaccinium spp. and gaylussacia spp. infested by rhagoletis mendax (diptera: tephritidae) in the great lakes region: a potential source of inoculum for infestation of cultivated blueberries.in this study, we addressed the question of whether or not native stands of blueberry (vaccinium spp.) and/or huckleberry (gaylussacia spp.) support populations of blueberry maggot, rhagoletis mendax curran, in the great lakes region. infestation of commercial blueberries by the blueberry maggot, r. mendax, is a serious problem in many areas where blueberries are grown. in the past 10-20 yr, commercial bighbush blueberry, vaccinium corymbosum l., production has expanded into places such as south ...200111777039
distribution and phenology of dasineura oxycoccana (diptera: cecidomyiidae) in michigan blueberries.the blueberry gall midge, dasineura oxycoccana johnson, is a serious pest of rabbiteye blueberries in florida, georgia, and mississippi, and a potential pest of southern and northern highbush blueberries. its damage has been observed with increasing frequency in highbush blueberry plantings in the great lakes region, including in wisconsin and in michigan. unlike in rabbiteye blueberry plantings, where blueberry gall midge primarily damages flowering buds, it is found to damage only the vegetati ...201222732602
contrasting pollinators and pollination in native and non-native regions of highbush blueberry production.highbush blueberry yields are dependent on pollination by bees, and introduction of managed honey bees is the primary strategy used for pollination of this crop. complementary pollination services are also provided by wild bees, yet highbush blueberry is increasingly grown in regions outside its native range where wild bee communities may be less adapted to the crop and growers may still be testing appropriate honey bee stocking densities. to contrast crop pollination in native and non-native pr ...201627391969
