Navasero, Scientist II from the National Crop Protection Center of UPLB, is notable for his achievements during the period for his upgrading (2013-2015), which included the discovery and use of Comperiella calaunica (Hymenoptera: Encytridae), an efficient biological control agent and specific parasitoid, that contributed to the cessation of outbreak of invasive cocolisap Aspidiotus
Rigidus Reyne (Hemiptera: Diaspididae), elucidate the chemical bases of repellency of some plants to some major pests of rice and eggplant, and assessment of potential impact of Bacillus thuringiensis eggplant, the first insecticide-protected plant being developed in the country, on nontarget arthropods.
the most noteworthy are: lethal yellowing, cadang-cadang and the Coleoptera Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Linnaeus) as absent quarantine pests; red palm mite Raoiella indica a present quarantine pest; and the coconut mite Aceria guerreronis, the coconut transparent mealybug Aspidiotus
destructor and the whitefly Aleurodicuspseudugesii, pests with great potential for dispersion and largely distributed in several growing regions worldwide.

rigidus), local term for coconut scale insect (CSI), causes the leaves of coconut trees to dry up and turn brown before withering away.
Biology of the scale insect Aspidiotus
destructor Signoret (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) was studied on mango cultivar Desi at mean temperature of 30C and relative humidity (RH) 64 % in the laboratory as well as on four mango cultivars in a greenhouse at 25C and 60 % RH in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan.
The insect/coconut scale is known as Aspidiotus
or the cocolisap.
