Congress on the control of insects in the tropical environment Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Marseilles, 13-16 March 1979 Report of the proceedings Part I Tropical crops Part II Human and animal health: Congres sur la lutte contre les insectes en milieu tropical Chambre de Commerce et d' Industrie de Marseille, 13-16 Mars 1979 Compte rendu des travaux Premiere partie Cultures tropicales Deuxieme partie Sante humaine et animale: ; 449-461



The results are reviewed of investigations on the mode of action of insecticides applied against Cosmopolites sordidus (Germ.) on banana. In the field, insecticides are spread around the bases of the plants, where the weevils live among plant detritus and the larvae tunnel in the corms.
