  • wax secretion
  • Notes: This study was conducted to determine effectiveness of wax structure on chemical control by removing with isoamyl alcohol(ISO) for Planococcus citri Risso (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae), Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera:Pseudococcidae) and Phenacoccus madeirensis Green (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae). Before and after the occurrence of wax, LC50 levels with bioassay were detected for Buprofezin (BP), sulfoxaflor (SF), chlorpyrifos ethyl (CH), dimethoate (DM), spirotetramat (SP), Lambda- Cyhalothrin (LC), pyriproxyfen (PY) insecticides.
