Vibrations in hemipteran and coleopteran insects: behaviors and
application in pest management.
Applied Entomology Zoology (2019)
Many groups of insects utilize substrate-borne vibrations for
communication. They display various behaviors in response to vibrations
in sexual and social communication and in predator–prey interactions.
Although the number of reports on communication and behaviors using
vibrations has continued to increase across various insect orders, there
are several studies of the exploitation of vibrations for pest
management in Hemiptera and Coleoptera. Here, we review studies of
behaviors and communication using vibrations in hemipteran and
coleopteran insects. For instance, pentatomid bugs display species- and
sex-specific vibrational signals during courtship, whereas cerambycid
beetles show startle responses to vibrations in the context of
predator–prey interactions. Concepts and case studies in pest management
using vibrations—especially regarding the disruption of communication
and behavior—are also presented.
