Caption: Mealybug. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female mealybug (Planococcus sp.). The females possess feeding mouthparts (lower right), but no wings. They are pests of various fruit crops, including grapes and citrus fruits. Mealybugs feed on plant sap, which weakens the plant, causing it to wilt and often die. Magnification: x110 at 6x7cm size.
