Seasonal incidence, host range and control of the teak sapling borer, Sahyadrassus malabaricus. (Final report of the research project Entom 08/79, January 1979 to June 1981)



Seasonal incidence, host range and control of the teak sapling borer, Sahyadrassus malabaricus. (Final report of the research project Entom 08/79, January 1979 to June 1981)



Research Report, Kerala Forest Research Institute (16): 36



The biology, injuriousness and control of the hepialid Sahyadrassus malabaricus (Moore) in saplings of teak (Tectona grandis) in Kerala, India, are described. The larvae bore into the stems and feed on callus tissue that grows as a result of their continuous browsing. There is one generation a year, with most adult moths emerging in late April and early May. The adults do not feed, and the female lays hundreds of eggs soon after emergence.
