Biological Pest Control Case Study – the cassava mealybug
The cassava plant is the habitat of the cassava mealybug and is damaged by the insect. The problem — The cassava mealybug- eating cassava plant- biological control of mealybug by using wasps. Stop Using Plagiarized Content. Get Essay The mealybug 5 shown on left hand side of text has damaged the cassava plants by sucking sap from roots, tender leaves; petioles and fruit form the plant. The severely infested leaves of the cassava plant will turn yellow 3 and gradually dry out a severe attack on the cassava plant can result in shredding of leaves.

The hitherto unknown insect was subsequently described and named in as Phenacoccus manihoti Matile-Ferrero, , originating from the neotropics. In the neotropics, the insect was first discovered in Paraguay in by A. Bellotti of CIAT. Whilst exploration for the natural enemies of P. The taxonomic clarification greatly enhanced successful introductions and establishment of specific natural enemies of P. Description Top of page Eggs Eggs are oblong, golden yellow and enclosed in woolly ovisacs located at the posterior end of the adult females.
Phenacoccus manihoti Distribution Widespread. Asia, Africa, South America. Hosts Cassava, and wild relative, Manihot glaziovii tree cassava , and some weeds. The eggs hatch and the nymphs or "crawlers" disperse to the top of the plant, settle, moult twice, before becoming adult Photo 4.
