Trunk injection of undiluted insecticides - a method to control coconut red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Fab



Trunk injection of undiluted insecticides - a method to control coconut red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Fab



Indian Coconut Journal 15(2): 12-14



Monocrotophos at 10 ml/tree or monocrotophos + dichlorvos (5 + 5 ml) was injected into a pre-drilled 10 cm deep hole (above the infestation site) or two 3 g aluminium phosphide (Celphos) tablets were crushed and placed in a similar hole. All holes were sealed with a paste of cement and copper oxychloride. All treatments gave good control of R. ferrugineus and resulted in 100% tree recovery.
