CULTURAL CONTROL
Certain types of organic mulches spread on the ground in a palm planting with St. Augustine grass, Stenotaphrum secundatum, ground cover enhanced the habitat for the nymphal development of Myndus crudus Van Duzee, as measured by the greater numbers of adults emerging from mulched areas compared with controls. Plots mulched with chopped and shredded coconut fronds had greater numbers of M. crudus than controls. Higher numbers of M. crudus emerged from plots with pine bark mulch than from control plots. There were no significant differences in mean numbers of adults captured in plots with eucalyptus and pine bark mulch. The least numbers of adults emerged from plots mulched with pine bark nuggets. Myndus crudus nymphs were never in the open but always beneath pieces of mulch. The benefit of mulches to the insects appears to be that of providing shelter.
