Viti-note Summary: • Characteristics • Description • Identifying different species and their distribution • Life cycle • Symptoms • Damage and loss Conditions favoring infestation • Varietal susceptibility Other topics in this Life Cycle: The life cycle of most species is similar with females laying 300 to 600 eggs in compact waxy sacs attached to axils of stems or leaves.After egg laying, females die and the eggs hatch in 7 to 10 days into tiny yellowish crawlers (nymphs). various functions during the life cycle, they are predom-inantly used by the females for forming the ovisac and by the males for making the cocoons. All or most life stages of the vine mealybug can be present year-round on a vine depending on the grape-growing region.
