Abstract

The fall armyworm's, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith), inability to survive extended periods of temperature below 10°C critically limits its overwintering area. This trait renders the pest a model insect on which to research components of pest management systems and select those most suitable for implementing an area-wide management system. An overview of the potential of several components of such a management system for fall armyworm is assessed. /// La inabilidad del gusano cogollero, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith), a sobrevivir extensos períodos de temperaturas más bajas de 10°, limita criticamente las áreas donde pudieran pasar el invierno. Esta característica rinde a esta plaga como un modelo sobre el cual se pudieran investigar los componentes de un sistema de manejo de plagas, y para seleccionar aquellos más propicios para implementarlos en un sistema de administración de un area. Se evalua una sobrevista del potencial de varios componentes de tal sistema de manejo del gusano cogollero.
