MBC was represented at the Florida State Horticultural Society Conference in Tampa from June 6-7. MBC Staff presented a paper titled  “Effects of a Parasitic Wasp (Coccobius fulvus) on Cycad Aulacaspis Scale (Aulacaspis yasumatsui) at Montgomery Botanical Center, Florida.”

This study was completed with Dr. Divina Amalin and Roger Coe of the USDA. MBC shared the newest information on scale control with Florida nursery professionals and horticultural extension agents at this year’s conference and returned with much new information to share, as well.
