Monitoring tea mosquito bug, Helopeltis antonii Signoret (Homoptera: Miridae) using sticky traps on drumstick, Moringa oleifera Lam
Tea mosquito bug, Helopeltis antonii Sign. is an emerging pest of drumstick, Moringa oleifera Lam. Both nymphs and adults cause severe damage (74-100%). Experiments were conducted to monitor tea mosquito bug population using colour sticky traps. Yellow colour sticky traps were found to attract significantly higher number of adult H. antonii (7± 2.26P<0.001) compared to the blue traps (2.37± 0.75).
