Studied on controlling Eichhornia crassipes with introducing natural enemies of Neochetina eichhorniae


Studied on controlling Eichhornia crassipes with introducing natural enemies of Neochetina eichhorniae



Southwest China Journal of Agricultural Sciences 19(5): 900-905



The results showed that Neochetina eichhorniae adults can feed on a large of leaf, petiole and stem of Eichhornia crassipes, thereby reducing photosynthesis of plant markedly. The larva drills and eats the stem, causing their yellowing, withering, rotting and death.
