Irradiation as a quarantine treatment for mango seed weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Irradiation as a quarantine treatment for mango seed weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Proceedings of the Hawaiian Entomological Society 35: 95-100



The mango seed weevil, Cryptorhynchus mangiferae (F.), has prevented the export of mangoes from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland for over 50 years because there were no approved quarantine treatments to control this pest. Irradiation was explored as a method to prevent adult emergence in, or to sterilize, mango seed weevil. Mixed-age mango seed weevils in mangoes were irradiated with target doses of 50, 100, or 300 Gy and held for adult emergence.
