Publication on Natural Enemies in Small Fruits

Beneficial Insects and Common Pests on Strawberry and Raspberry Crops is a 33 page bulletin written by D. E. Henderson and D. A. Raworth. This Agriculture Canada Publication 1863 describes common natural enemies found on these, and many other, crops. The majority of the publication is devoted to the beneficial rather than the pest insects. Different sections on beneficial flies, wasps, beetles, true bugs, lacewings, and mites introduce the reader to the important natural enemies in these groups that occur on strawberry and raspberry. For example, the beneficial flies include information on syrphid flies (flower flies), tachinid flies, and aphid midges. A brief description is provided and the life history is discussed for each group. Forty-two color and eight black and white photographs accompany the text.
