Project title
Mass culturing of vine mealybug for application in IPM

Project leader
Achiano, K A

Project description
The objective of this project is to supply mealybug which are not resistant to chemicals or bio-pesticides needed for various research projects through mass breeding.  It also serves as a benchmark for future work on resistance in mealybug.

Non-resistance mealybugs are reared and maintained at Nietvoorbij insectary and provided to researchers on request.
