The attack rate of bagworms Metisa plana Walker (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) on the age of oil palm
(Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) at Matapao Plantation, PT Socfin Indonesia. Under the supervision of
Mena Uly Tarigan as the chairperson and Lisnawita as the member. The aim of the research was to
know the attack rate of bagworms (Metisa plana Walker) on the age of oil palm at the planting area
of TBM (pre-producing plant) and TM (post-producing plant). The research was conducted at

diagonal samples. The results of the research showed that the attack rate of bagworms was higher
on the TBM than on TM. The highest number of pests was found at block 27 in the planting year of
2011 with 119 pests, while the highest rate of attack by bagworms (19.758%) was found at block 28
in the planting year of 2009. The highest attack of bagworms was found in sample 50 at block 27 in
