[6] Within a few years of its release it covered the entire country, and within five years there were no high concentrations of the cassava mealybug present. A field trial on a moderately infested four-month old cassava plot was initiated at Ugwuoba field station of National Root Crops Research Institute, to determine the efficacy of five insecticides for control of cassava mealybug (CMB), Phenacoccus manihoti Mat-Ferr.

The coccinellid Hyperaspis notata is associated with the mealybugs P. manihoti and P. herreni on cassava in southern Brazil and the highlands of Colombia. In the early 1970s, the cassava mealybug P. manihoti was accidentally introduced to Africa.
