  • Nilaparvata lugens is a major pest to rice production in many areas of Asia. It shows two wing forms, long (macropterous) and short (brachypterous) ones, in its adult stage. The macropterous adults possess the ability to migrate across long distances, while the brachypterous adults exemplify strong reproductive capacities. It ingests nutrients of rice and causes diseases in rice by being vector of viruses. In recent years, N. lugens outbreaks have occurred more frequently in the South of China. Because of its long-distance migration, quick adaptation to resistant rice varieties and development of high resistance to pesticides, N. lugens infestations are difficult to control[1][2].
