A pest of citrus in the French Antilles: Diaprepes abbreviatus L



A pest of citrus in the French Antilles: Diaprepes abbreviatus L



Fruits Paris 43(4): 229-234



In this review, some pests of citrus in the French Antilles (Caribbean) are listed and special attention is paid to the biology and injuriousness of the weevil Diaprepes abbreviatus. The recently established citrus crops have, since 1984, been faced with a problem of decline which has serious economic consequences. Several factors may have contributed, but infestation with D. abbreviatus seems to be one of the main causes.
