Abstract: Sucking pests are major threat to cotton field crop which cause unbearable losses to the crop yield. Aim of the current study was to record seasonal dynamics of major sucking insect pests including whitefly, jassid, thrips and their natural arthropod predators i.e. green lacewings and spiders in cotton field plots. The effects of surrounding field crops on pests’ density and predatory efficiency of predators were also recorded. For sampling and survey of insects, the visual counting was found to be the most ef… Show more

“…These markers will be utilized in the cotton improvement for broadening the genetic base and developing varieties against pests and diseases. Microsatellites are particularly famous genetic markers due to their co-dominance, excessive plentiful variant and polymorphism rates, more than one allele, and short allele detection through many methods [9]. Microsatellite markers are also potent in population genetic research for insect species.…”

“…Thrips are commonly found at the early stages of cotton plants (Gossypium hirsutum L.) feeding on the epidermal cells of the leaf mesophyll (Kaur et al, 2018;Nadeem et al, 2022). Intensive feeding by thrips causes terminal malformation in cotton seedlings, abnormal growth and, in extreme cases, death of the growing bud, leading to loss of apical dominance (Kerns et al, 2019).…”

“…Thrips generally cause greater damage in periods of limiting climatic conditions for seedling growth, particularly in dry and hot climates (Kaur et al, 2018;Nadeem et al, 2022). Water stress conditions favor infestation of J. curcas plants by this pest (Lima et al, 2020) and its location around the greenhouse may have stimulated the migration of R. syriacus thrips to cotton plants, resulting in high damage levels.…”
