Abstract

This paper discusses the mapping of spatial distribution of Dysdercus
spp. (Phyyhocoridae) and Anoplocnemis spp. (Coreidae) at
Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Pahang, Jengka Campus
plantation area by using Global Positioning System (GPS) and
Geographical Information System (GIS). The main objectives are to
collect and create a database of insect pest, to determine spatial
distribution and predict behavioural pattern of the species above.
The sampling was done every 2 days for a period of 30 days. The
work was carried out by three men-day. The sampling technique
used was by using the insect sweeping net and through direct
observation. The coordinate system in terms of longitude and latitude
(WGS 84) were recorded by using Garmin eTrex Summit (GPS
receiver) for each Dysdercus spp. and Anoplocnemis spp. discovered.
At total of 9I individuals of Anoplocnemis spp. and 6 individuals of
Dysdercus spp. were recorded during the field study. The data were
then associated with the GIS application in order to map the spatial
distribution of the insect pests. In conclusion, the combination of
database, GPS and GIS provides an excellent tool for predicting
and monitoring the behavioural patterns of insect pests especially
in a large area.
