Estimation of a longan stink bug, Tessaratoma papillosa in Son La Province, Vietnam
Many insects are considered as potential sources of food for humans because of their high content of protein, fat, minerals and vitamins. Tessaratoma papillosa Drury, a stink bug of longan tree has long been consumed by many people in Vietnam as a supplemental source of nutrition. This insect is one of the most severe pests of longan tree. The use of this insect as supplementary nutrient could actively reduce the pests on longans, contributing to increase productivity and quality of longan fruit. The aim of this paper is to estimate the volume of mature and young Tessaratoma papillosa on longan trees in Son La Province, Vietnam.
