Abstract

The ornamental plants Ficus elastica, Yucca gloriosa, Dracaena deremensis 'Warneckii', Codiaeum variegatum and Dracaena surculosa 'Florida Beauty' were not used for oviposition by Diaprepes abbreviatus. All the other Dracaena spp. tested were used in addition to other plants. This paper discusses the importance of these ornamental plants as hosts of Diaprepes abbreviatus.
