Curative Control

Plants in pest control

  1. Neem

Physical methods

  1. Sticky board trap
    To make your own sticky trap, spread petroleum jelly or used motor oil on yellow painted plywood, 6 cm x 15 cm in size or up. Place traps near the plants but far away enough to prevent the leaves from sticking to the board. Traps when hung should be positioned 61 cm zone above the plants (Olkowski; Daar; Olkowski, 1991).

  2. Trim and remove infested plant parts.

Other solutions

  1. Soap spray
  2. Horticultural oil

  3. Avoid using horticulural oil for at least 1 month after using sulfur. The sulfur residues can trigger phytotoxic reactions (burnt leaves) on plants.
