Mass rearing of the mango scale, Aulacaspis tubercularis Newstead (Hemiptera: Diaspididae)



Mass rearing of the mango scale, Aulacaspis tubercularis Newstead (Hemiptera: Diaspididae)



Inlightingsbulletin Navorsingsinstituut vir Sitrus en Subtropiese Vrugte (218): 17-19



The mango pest Aulacaspis tubercularis was reared successfully in the laboratory at various temperatures and relative humidities on butternuts (Cucurbita moschata), these vegetables being readily available throughout the year. The shelf life was increased by dipping the butternuts in the fungicide benomyl 50% WP at 3 g/10 litres of water for 10 s and sealing the flower and stem end- sections with melted paraffin wax.
