Random surveys of potential cultivated and indigenous host plants of Eldana saccharina Walker, a recent pest of sugarcane in Zimbabwe, were completed. Samples of E. saccharina were collected monthly, from February 2002 to January 2003 from four sugarcane sites and from Cyperus digitatus Roxb. subsp. auricomus (Sieber) Kuk. (Cyperaceae), an indigenous host plant, to study population fluctuations and parasitism of this pest. Included are data from Typha latifolia L. subsp. capensis (Typhaceae… CONTINUE READING
