An integrated pest management approach towards the control of the low-density coconut pest, Pseudotheraptus wayi Brown (Hemiptera: Coreidae)



An integrated pest management approach towards the control of the low-density coconut pest, Pseudotheraptus wayi Brown (Hemiptera: Coreidae)



Integrated Pest Management in Tropical and Subtropical Cropping Systems ' 89, held on 8-15 February 1989, Bad Durkheim, Germany; ( 2): 395-404



Threshold-oriented chemical control and biological control with the formicid Oecophylla longinoda were investigated for the control of Pseudotheraptus wayi on coconuts in Tanzania. Under conditions of high population pressure and frequent invasion from neighbouring untreated plots, spraying at a population threshold of 30 coreids/ha was as effective as spraying at 3-weekly intervals.
