Dysmicoccus brevipes( Cockerell) and D. neobrevipes( Beardsley) are important pests requiring quarantine treatment at entry and exit ports for tropical fruit such as pineapples etc. In order to establish an effective treatment method for these two mealybugs,Cobalt-60 gamma ray target doses of 80,130,180,230 and 250 Gy were used to irradiate immatures and adults of both species to find the most tolerant stage and the optimal dose range for quarantine treatment. The responses of each species to…
