Effect of the scale insect (Aonidiella orientalis Newstead) (Homoptera: Diaspididae) on neem seed production and germinability in north-eastern Nigeria


Effect of the scale insect (Aonidiella orientalis Newstead) (Homoptera: Diaspididae) on neem seed production and germinability in north-eastern Nigeria



Entomology in the Nigerian economy Research focus in the 21st century: 55-61



A comparative study of healthy and scale insect-infested neem trees as regards seed production and germinability was carried out. It was found that the healthy trees produced significantly higher number, as well as larger and heavier seeds than scale insect-infested trees. Seed production by the scale insect-infested trees was shown to be negatively correlated with the level of infestation.
