On the mechanism of action of the Comstock mealybug in leaves of mulberry



On the mechanism of action of the Comstock mealybug in leaves of mulberry



Biologicheskii Zhurnal Armenii 36(4): 344-345



A study carried out in Armenia, USSR, showed that feeding by Pseudococcus comstocki (Kuw.) caused structural changes in the tissues of mulberry leaves. The feeding sites showed recesses, cells decomposed and died and necroses and chloroses developed. This caused the premature fall of up to 30% of leaves. Substances secreted by the mealybugs caused dust to settle on the leaves.
