Damage by the rhinoceros beetle Oryctes rhinoceros (L.), to Pacific island palms



Damage by the rhinoceros beetle Oryctes rhinoceros (L.), to Pacific island palms



S. Pacif. Bull 16(4): 51-2. bibl. 5



Surveys of damage caused by O. rhinoceros were conducted in several Pacific islands in 1964-66. Damage as expressed by the proportion of fronds with beetle cuts varied from 7 to 42 %; the proportion of palms with damaged fronds ranged from 30 to 90 %. Damage was usually more severe in isolated palms near villages than in closed plantations.
