The bagworm is a perennial insect pest of arborvitae, juniper, pine, spruce, and many other evergreen species (including Christmas trees). Replace bait taken at 4 day interval; stop baiting at 20% replacement Two baiting practices in oil palm estates: FD In cases such as this, the diploid automictic unisexual step would be skipped when triploidy occurs by the fertilization of an unreduced egg, likely by interspecific hybridization (Saura et al., 1993). year. pest in Peninsular Malaysia, but it is the major defoliator and widely distributed With the in­ troduction and rapid extension of oil palm cultivation in E.

In general, Bt products are more effective against small larval stages, with larger instars having progressively higher LC50 values, a trend observed in both Lepidoptera (Shanmugam et al., 2006) and Coleoptera (James et al., 1999). analyzed. (1995). This hypothesis poses a positive feedback loop between population size and host range. The number of brown fronds increases until the whole canopy is completely brown. The male moth on emergence seeks out the female for mating. the other bagworms has a wide range host plants, amounting to about 31 species The early symptoms of bagworm damage are small feeding holes on fronds. Males are fully winged, while females of some species may be fully winged, short-winged, wingless, or even larviform and never leave the larval case. and Siburat (1992) stated the pupal population of P. pendula had Normark and Johnson (2011) noted several characteristics associated with this syndrome of highly abundant and highly polyphagous insects including flightless adults, passively dispersing early larvae, feeding on woody plants, and obligate parthenogenesis. 29 individuals (0.30%) from March to April 2006. mortality was contributed by predators, 36.7% by parasitoids and 32.2% by fungal This phenomenon was shown by the frequency (5.9%). 6,166 and 9,775 bagworms collected from October to November 2005 and March to the small holders do not regularly manage the bagworm populations. The early symptoms of bagworm damage are small feeding holes on fronds. Information on the ecology of the rhinoceros beetle, especially in the zero-burning environment (Samsudin et al., 1993), will further enhance IPM approaches for Oryctes rhinoceros. Highest infection occurred in P. pendula, 97.9%, M. plana and M. corbetti recorded 0.7 and 1.4% from October to November 2005, respectively.

TABLE 8.1. Only the male moth is winged. The predatory beetle, Callimerus arcufer Bagworm species are found globally, with some, such as the snailcase bagworm (Apterona helicoidella), in modern times settling continents where they are not native. In most cases, the model found positive pairwise correlations between evolutionary changes in scale insect presence on different host plants. of flower weed and vegetation were observed in the interior part of the plantation, The diversification of the insects was the most extensive of any multicellular life forms on Earth but, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, appears to have proceeded with only a minimal input from polyploidy. 6.8), and Setothosea asigna (Lepidoptera: Limacodidae). infection. Frequently, parthenogens have different geographic distributions from the sexual taxa to which they are most closely related, a phenomenon known as geographic parthenogenesis. Mortality About 35.9 and 27.2% of mortality were contributed by parasitoids A total of 90,980 palms were treated. This paper deals with the natural enemies of oil palm bagworms recorded in Sabah during 1969 and 1970. located at the plantation. One scenario for the origin of polyploid weevils involves a transition from bisexual diploidy to automictic unisexuality, then to diploid apomictic unisexuality and to apomictic triploidy, and thence to higher levels via fertilization of triploid eggs by males of related bisexual species (Suomalainen, 1969). However, empirical evidence to distinguish between these possibilities is lacking and it is probable that different mechanisms could operate to generate polyploidy and thyletoky in this family (Tomiuk et al., 1994). In Malaysia, the most significant disease is BSR caused by Ganoderma sp. The result suggests bagworm infestation was not correlated with amount and distribution of rainfall as being claimed by many planters. The high predation and parasitizing activity on bagworms in the interior part 6.10). 6.9. The latest breakthrough on the BSR is the identification of four species of Ganoderma: Ganoderma boninense, Ganoderma zonatum, Ganoderma miniatocinctum, and Ganoderma tornatum. of bagworm outbreaks in 2005 where outbreaks occurred throughout the year irrespective economic threshold level, with less than 8% of sampled bagworms. The disease causes severe damage to the affected palms with a consequent loss in yield. Oil palm may also be referred to as African oil palm and originated from West Africa. Bagworms (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) are one of the important leaf-eating pests of oil palm in Malaysia and Indonesia. into species. can grow up to 1–2 cm long and the caterpillars of Setora and Setothosea up to 3–4 cm long. Malaysia plays an important role in the global palm oil trade as a leading exporter of the oil. There are nearly 1000 described species from all faunal regions, about 85% in the Old World. The sting can be quite painful. 32°C, than M. anisopliae (30°C) (Vidal et An implicit assumption of the niche hypothesis model is that tradeoffs between performance on different hosts are sufficiently rare (Normark and Johnson, 2011). Sampling was conducted at 14 days interval. 1973). Though, they prefer evergreens, like juniper, arborvitae, cedar and spruce. Two weekly censuses are carried out to monitor the pest population and damage on foliage in order to determine the need and timing of applying control measures. As Lokki and Saura (1980) pointed out, polyploid insects tend to be flightless and to have slow life cycles lasting two or more years. Fig. 5). Data Analysis of the amount of rainfall. They believed that bagworms feed more actively and spread faster in a dry and The were placed individually in a plastic vial, marked and brought back to entomology of the individuals collected were alive, 7.1% (438 individuals) of the emerged This is in line with the concept of integrated pest management (IPM) where natural control is integrated with chemicals (Wood, 1976). There is also a positive correlation between body size and level of polyploidy in weevils (Suomalainen, 1969; Smith and Virkki, 1978; Suomalainen et al., 1987). The oil palm products in Malaysia are traded before and after processing. Males are very insignificant and dark brown, as with the other two taxa that are present attacking palms there. First, apomictic tetraploid thyletokous clones were produced by heat-treating eggs, and then this all-female line was crossed with males of B. mandarina to produce sterile male and female “triploids” (actually, mosaics of 3x and 6x tissues). in Eastern Sabah (Wood and Nesbit, 1969; Young, There was 11.1 and 4.0% of bagworms were parasitized during the first phase and the second phase of the bagworms sampling, respectively. The result suggests bagworm infestation was not correlated with amount and distribution of rainfall as being claimed by many planters. The common species of nettle caterpillars in Malaysia are Darna trima (Fig. INDONESIAN OIL PALM RESEARCH INSTITUTE Jln. in oil palm plantations in Peninsular Malaysia. Data on the occurrence of bagworms outbreaks in the plantation during the The field assistants marked and estimated the extent of damages of Liau & Ahmad (1995) reported that substantial yield loss (30–36% over 2 years) can be caused by defoliation in the immature period. The parasitoids were Pediobius imbrues (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), Pediobius elasmi (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), Dolichodenidea metasae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and Aulosaphes psychidivorus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). Unfortunately, arborists and nurserymen often overlook small, early instars, and pesticide applications are made to late instars (Gill and Raupp, 1994). Production of this virus is now well established and further research into its efficacy continues (Moore et al., 2011). decreased by 242.26 tons or 3.67% in the following year. the highest percentage (37%) of mortality affecting to bagworm population in M. plana was most widely distributed species and followed by P. pendula Planting of beneficial plants and field release of predatory bugs can help to prevent or reduce incidence of outbreaks and will contribute to the reduction in chemical usage. Oil palm; Coconut; Palmyrah; Rhinoceros beetle; Psychid; Leaf web worm . When the larvae are mature, they fix their bags to a branch, binding it to the branch with silk.
