See, when papaya mealy bugs are seen first time in India?
These kind of mealybugs are already present in America since long back infesting papaya and spread from there to India and other countries. This type of mealy bug was reported for the first time in India from Tamil Nadu in 2008 and has shredded to other states, posing a threat to papaya. This pest causes about 60 to 80% loss in papaya orchards. Use insecticides judiciously for management.
