Overwintering of Bemisia tabaci Q-biotype Gennadius , an important agricultural pest, was investigated in Kumamoto. As a result of research from 2007 to 2008, it was found that some of the eggs and nymphs of Q-biotype could overwinter under semi-outdoor conditions: the survival rate was 0.1-1.2%. However, the adult of Q-biotype could not overwinter under the same conditions. Furthermore, during 2008-2009, it was found that some of the eggs and nymphs of Q-biotype could overwinter under natural
