Icerya purchasi Maskell - Cottony cushion scale

This insect is a true bug in the Family Margarodidae. It is native to Australia where acacia plants serve as its host. Around 1870 it was accidentally introduced to California on imported acacia plants. The insect successfully colonized its new land and discovered a new host plant, citrus. The insect caused huge damage to the citrus plants in California which resulted in great economic damage.

Riley, the Federal Entomologist at the time, sent some folks over to Australia to look for natural enemies of the scale insect. They found, brought back and released a ladybug (Rhodalia cardinalis) and a parasitic fly (Cryptochaetum iceryae). The effort was a great success and is considered the first scientifically driven and institutionally backed biological control effort.

Unfortunately, some of the citrus growers in California thought the success was so magnificent that they packed up some ladybugs on citrus leaves and mailed them to Florida, where there was no scale present. However, when growers opened the shipment of ladybugs in Florida, scale was released with them and, since then, cottony cushion scale has been present in Florida.

Cottony cushion scale is now widespread throughout the world and can be found pretty much where ever citrus is growing.

Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Because they have spotted the problem with your last post?

Since 2002 the name Salmonella enteritids should not be used anymore. The correct name is Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Enteritidis.
