Naphthalene balls for the protection of coconuts and oil palms against Oryctes rhinoceros (L.)



Naphthalene balls for the protection of coconuts and oil palms against Oryctes rhinoceros (L.)



Planter 63(736): 286-292



A number of insecticidal treatments were evaluated for their efficacy against the scarabaeid O. rhinoceros in heavily infested coconut and oil palm replants in Malaysia in 1980-85. Naphthalene balls inserted into the frond axils at 5 pieces per palm were the most effective, giving more than 95% control, followed by dust or granular formulations of BHC and carbofuran.
