Control of Eulophonotus obesus K. (Lepidoptera: Cossidae): a bole borer of Triplochiton scleroxylon K. Schum



Control of Eulophonotus obesus K. (Lepidoptera: Cossidae): a bole borer of Triplochiton scleroxylon K. Schum



Malaysian Forester 1988; 49(1-2): 198-204



Observations in an even-aged plantation of T. scleroxylon in an arboretum in Ibadan, Nigeria, during 1981-83 showed that attack by E. obesus occurred in most months with major peaks in May 1981 and Jan. 1982. The number of trees attacked was highly correlated with the number of exit holes made in the same month. Weeding half the plantation in 1982-83 appeared to reduce attack.
