The pink mealybug (PMB) has been a major agricultural disaster sweeping across the Caribbean in the past decade. The bug, Maconellicoccus hirsutus, has caused enormous damage to all kinds of crops, fruits, flowers and vegetables and it has brought international and inter-island trade in many products to a complete standstill. The Pink Mealbug manual discusses the integration of practices in production, harvesting and packaging necessary for quarantine security. Treatments include methyl bromide, hot water and magnesium phosphide. The Pink Mealybug.
