Integrated Pest Management of Coffee Berry Borer: Strategies from Latin America that Could Be Useful for Coffee Farmers in Hawaii

Abstract: The coffee berry borer (CBB), Hypothenemus hampei Ferrari (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) is the primary arthropod pest of coffee plantations worldwide. Since its detection in Hawaii (September 2010), coffee growers are facing financial losses due to reduced quality of coffee yields. Several control strategies that include cultural practices, biological control agents (parasitoids), chemical and microbial insecticides (entomopathogenic fungi), and a range of post-harvest sanitation practices have been … Show more

“…Although it is endemic to Central Africa, CBB is now found in almost every coffee‐producing country in the world . In 2010, CBB first invaded the island of Hawai'i where high‐quality coffee is the fourth largest cash crop, accounting for $50.3 million dollars in annual revenue as of 2014 . A major economic challenge to small‐scale coffee production, CBB has had the effect of making coffee farming more intensive and less profitable: damage causes significant losses in yield and alters the flavor profile of salvageable coffee beans .…”

“…Management of CBB has traditionally been accomplished through IPM including sampling and monitoring, cultural harvesting, postharvest control, pest management during ‘zoqueo’, use of Beauveria bassiana , and release of parasitoids (Aristizabal et al 2016). A great interest exists in the potential for mass rearing of African parasitic wasps to reduce the damage produced by this pest.…”

“…Coffee production ( Coffea arabica L.) worldwide has increased by over 50% in the past 25 yr, from 93 million bags in 1990 to 143 million bags in 2015 (ICO 2015). The total value of the coffee industry during 2012 was estimated at U.S. $173 billion (Aristizabal et al 2016). The CBB is an insect pest specific of Coffea spp.…”

“…Due to its accidental introduction to other continents, the CBB has become a serious problem and is now widespread across most growing regions, where coffee production has been historically profitable. With its introduction to Puerto Rico in 2007 and Hawaii in 2010, coffee farmers are trying to adapt integrated pest management (IPM) strategies that have been used with success for small coffee growers (pequenos caficultores) in Latin American countries for the control of this pest (Aristizabal et al 2016). Among these strategies are the use of two African parasitoids Cephalonomia stephanoderis Betrem and Prorops nasuta Waterston (both Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) through a farmer participatory, which has been an important component of IPM programs in Colombia (Aristizabal et al 2011, 2016, 2017).…”
