Abstract

Epicuticular leaf wax collected from 2 azalea lace bug (ALB) susceptible azalea genotypes and 2 ALB resistant azalea genotypes of Rhododendron canescens and Rhododendron periclymenoides. When wax from ALB resistant genotypes was applied to ALB susceptible genotypes, ALB feeding and oviposition was reduced. When wax from ALB susceptible genotypes was applied to ALB resistant genotypes, plants showed an increased sensitivity to oviposition.
