Although the Coconut Scale Insect (CSI) “cocolisap” infestation is not alarming in Davao region, the Department of Agriculture (DA) 11 and the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) 11 has already prepared mitigating measures to combat the possible attack of the said specie.
Cocolisap is a leaf sucking insect with waxy scale cover anchored near the midrib on the underside of infested leaflet and it infects the basal portion of fronds of the older leaves.
