Project title
Population studies of vine mealybug and its most important parasite

Project leader
Walton, V M

Team members
Pringle, K L

Project description
The generation of life table data for vine mealybug and an important parasitoid wasp (Coccidoxenoides peregrinus), will make it possible to create a degree day model which will help to predict pest outbreaks. This model will enable producers to use chemicals more accurately, making chemical control more effective. This will help to decrease chemical input costs.
