I am owner of 20 acres of Mango orchard. In my orchard attack of mealy bug was very severe. I tried to overcome this by different pesticides but all in vain.

As now I am member of EMFP cluster, here during training, trainer Mr. Abu Bakar advised to use complete integrated approach and not to use chemicals only. He recommended overlapping slippery polythene sheets and sticky bands around trunks to check the movement of adults.

Now the problem is 90% controlled as compared to my previous approach. I am thankful to EMFP team.
