They penetrate the cactus with their beak-like mouthparts and feed on its juices, remaining immobile unless alarmed. After mating, the fertilised female increases in size and gives birth to tiny nymphs. The nymphs secrete a waxy white substance over their bodies for protection from water loss and excessive sun.
This substance makes the cochineal insect appear white or grey from the outside, though the body of the insect and its nymphs produces the red pigment, which makes the insides of the insect look dark purple. Adult males can be distinguished from females in that males have wings, and are much smaller. The juveniles move to a feeding spot and produce long wax filaments. Later, they move to the edge of the cactus pad, where the wind catches the wax filaments and carries the insects to a new host.
These individuals establish feeding sites on the new host and produce a new generation of cochineals.
At this time, they can no longer feed at all and live only long enough to fertilise the eggs. They have been widely introduced to many regions where their host cacti also grow. About species of Opuntia cacti are known, and while it is possible to cultivate cochineal on almost all of them, the most common is Opuntia ficus-indica.
Other cochineal species feed on many of the same Opuntia, and the wide range of hosts reported for D. Cochineals are farmed in the traditional method by planting infected cactus pads or infesting existing cacti with cochineals and harvesting the insects by hand. The controlled method uses small baskets called Zapotec nests placed on host cacti.
The baskets contain clean, fertile females that leave the nests and settle on the cactus to await fertilization by the males. In both cases, the cochineals must be protected from predation , cold, and rain. At the end of the cycle, the new cochineals are left to reproduce or are collected and dried for dye production.
Harvesting the insects is labour-intensive, as they must be individually knocked, brushed, or picked from the cacti and placed into bags. The insects are gathered by small groups of collectors who sell them to local processors or exporters.
Of all the predators, insects seem to be the most important group. Insects and their larvae such as pyralid moths order Lepidoptera , which destroy the cactus, and predators such as lady bugs Coleoptera , various Diptera such as Syrphidae and Chamaemyiidae , lacewings Neuroptera , and ants Hymenoptera have been identified, as well as numerous parasitic wasps.
Many birds, human- commensal rodents especially rats and reptiles also prey on cochineal insects. In regions dependent on cochineal production, pest control measures are taken seriously. For small-scale cultivation, manual methods of control have proved to be the safest and most effective.
For large-scale cultivation, advanced pest control methods have to be developed, including alternative bioinsecticides or traps with pheromones. Captain Arthur Phillip collected a number of cochineal-infested plants from Brazil on his way to establish the first European settlement at Botany Bay, part of which is now Sydney , New South Wales.
At that time, Spain and Portugal had a worldwide cochineal dye monopoly via their New World colonial sources, and the British desired a source under their own control, as the dye was important to their clothing and garment industries; it was used to colour the British soldiers' red coats , for example.
Carmine cochineal was introduced into northern Ethiopia early in the s to be cultivated among farming communities. Foodsafe exported tons of dried carmine cochineal over 3 years.
A conflict of interest among communities led to closure of the cochineal business in Ethiopia, but the insect spread and became a pest.
