Integrated management of insect pests (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) of oil palm in Papua New Guinea



Integrated management of insect pests (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) of oil palm in Papua New Guinea



Planter 76(892): 393-407



The principal pests of oil palm in Papua New Guinea (PNG) are a group of species from the Tettigoniidae family (Orthoptera), known as bush crickets, long-horned grasshoppers or treehoppers. This group of species is collectively called sexava. Three species of sexava are pests of oil palm in PNG: Segestes decoratus, Segestidea defoliaria and Segestidea novaeguineae. These insects cause damage by feeding on oil palm fronds and defoliation levels can be very severe where high populations occur.
