LANG SON — An unknown bug has damaged around 200 ha of star anises (Illicium verum) trees in northern mountainous Lang Son Province.

The bug is believed to first appear in March in Van Quan District's Khanh Khe Commune. The bug's density is estimated to be 30-1,000 each tree.

The provincial Plant Protection Department deputy head Sam Ngoc Thanh highly recommended local farmers spray chemicals to exterminate the bug while calling for supports from the State to identify the bug and curb the situation.-VNS
