Food Host Preference and Life cycle characteristics of the Papaya mealybug, Paracoccus marginatus Will. and Granara de Willink in Ibadan, Southwest Nigeria
Nigeria Journal of Entomology
Papaya mealybug, Paracoccus marginatus is an invasive polyphagous hemipteran that causes enormous damage to different host plants in Nigeria. However, information on the pest's damage potential and host range is scanty; therefore, the host preference and life cycle of P. marginatus were investigated. Six economic plants: Carica papaya (Caricaceae), Solanum lycopersicum (Soalnaceae), Manihot esculenta (Euphorbiaceae), Abelmoschus esculentus (Malvaceae), Psidium guajava (Myrtaceae) and Tectonadoi:10.36108/nje/9102/53.01.21 fatcat:a57alpgp2jgtrnekj4mms3y6xi
