Abstract: PEREIRA C, LAURENTIN H. 2001. Flight behaviour of the tobacco whitefly (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) on sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) in Venezuela. Entomotropica Vol. 16(1):47-51. To estimate flying height of adult whiteflies in sesame, among them Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius), field studies were conducted using a randomized complete block design on a commercial crop of the cultivar UCLA-1, at Microsur in Santa Rosalía municipality, Portuguesa state, Venezuela. Six sampling heights were evaluated: 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150 cm with yellow double-faced boards of 10 x15 cm, covered with transparent plastic bags on metal supports. An adhesive liquid was applied to the outer surface of the bags, in order to capture adults. Samples were taken weekly, during six consecutive weeks. The results show that the number of adult whiteflies captured was highest at 25 and 50 cm from ground, but these numbers varied through time and in function of board face. Results of this study are discussed in terms of its practical utility in integrated pest management in sesame crops.
