Groundwork for the biological control of the Indian rhinoceros beetle, Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) with Rhabdionvirus oryctes: histopathology of the disease in the beetles



Groundwork for the biological control of the Indian rhinoceros beetle, Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) with Rhabdionvirus oryctes: histopathology of the disease in the beetles



Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Entomologie 72(3): 309-319



Field tests on the control of Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) with Rhabdionvirus oryctes have been carried out with some success on islands in the South Pacific. The virus was disseminated by contamination of the breeding sites with a suspension of triturated diseased larvae. The disease spread with populations of Oryctes and there was a marked improvement in the condition of coconut plantations that had previously been heavily attacked by the beetle.
