Cultural and chemical control of Scapanes australis

Cultural and chemical control of Scapanes australis

Solomon Islands, Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Research Department, Agriculture Division, annual report 1985: 21-22

Trials and observations on the control of the scarabaeid Scapanes australis on coconuts in the Solomon Islands are reported. In a preliminary assessment of the damage caused following a number of treatments that had been applied earlier, the number of beetle attacks averaged 7.5 when all fallen logs were removed, 14.0 when legume cover was sown after felling of the forest and 10.0 for the application of BHC every 3 months, as compared with 20.0 for no treatment.
