Abstract

Plant feeding stink bugs sucks sap and may cause wilting, distortion, or stunting of shoots. In all, 23 species of stink bugs were reported on 36 plant species in Kolhapur district. The Catacanthus incarnatus was associated with 8 plant species and Plautia crossota was found to be associated with 7 plant species, while Halyomorpha halys and Nezara viridula were reported on 6 plant species each. Remaining stink bug species were associated with plant species in the range of 1 to 4 plant species. Among 36 reported plant species, Lantana camara hosts maximum 4 stink bug species, while Mangifera indica, Syzygium cumini, Strobilanthes callosa, and Morus alba hosts 3 stink bug species each. Remaining plant species were associated with 1or 2 stink bug species each. Data of the present study will help to formulate control strategies against these economically important crops as well as forest pests.
