Management of citrus mealybug, Planococcus citri Risso on guava using botanical oils


, : Management of citrus mealybug, Planococcus citri Risso on guava using botanical oils. Insect Environment 2(3): 73-74

On the basis of a field trial in Karnataka, India, neem oil and Pongamia oil (both at 4%) are recommended for the control of Planococcus citri on guava; they caused 93.23 and 89.39% mortality of the pest, resp., 10 days after the second spray (applied 10 days after the first).

The number of males caught by pheromone-baited sticky traps was significantly affected by both size...
