Abstract:The entomologist, and in general the layman, accepts the fact that low winter temperatures are often a determining factor in the abundance and distribution of many economic species of insects, but apparently few in the North, especially, give much thought to a possible retarding influence of summer temperatures. Several years of field observations of the psyllid, Paratrioza cockerelli (Sulc), the most serious pest of tomatoes and potatoes in Colorado, indicate that this species is especially affected by summer temperatures and may be considered a low-temperature species. This is indicated by the rather intermittent outbreaks that occur in certain localities, the seriousness of the pest in the cool, high mountain areas and its frequent, almost complete, disappearance during the hotter part of the summer from some of the warmer areas.
