The Control of Black Beetle (Oryctes rhinoceros L.) in Coconut Palms



The Control of Black Beetle (Oryctes rhinoceros L.) in Coconut Palms



Trop. Agriculturist. Peradeniya 72(5): 272-275



The adults of Oryctes rhinoceros, L., commonly attack the crowns of healthy coconut palms of all ages in Ceylon, boring through the leaf sheaths and immature leaves and stalks around the central bud, but seldom cause serious injury. In young palms, however, growth may be considerably retarded. In severe attacks much of the crown is destroyed and, in rainy weather, a decay of the bud tissues sets in, which eventually leads to the death of the palm.
