Strategies for the management of the teak beehole borer, Xyleutes ceramicus (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Cossidae) in Thailand

Strategies for the management of the teak beehole borer, Xyleutes ceramicus (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Cossidae) in Thailand

FORSPA Publication (30): 99-103

The ecology of the teak beehole borer, Xyleutes ceramicus which has long been regarded as the most serious pest of teak (Tectona grandis), was studied in northern Thailand from 1991-94. Natural regulation mechanisms were clarified through life table construction. Key factor analysis showed that predation by ants during the egg and the 2nd to 3rd larval stages governs the population changes of the borer.
