Abstract

CABRERA-MARULANDA, Miguel Ángel; ROBLEDO-BURITICA, Jacobo  and  SOTO-GIRALDO, Alberto. INSECTICIDE ACTIVITY OF LIME SULPHUR ON Hypothenemus hampei (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE). Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.2, pp.24-32. ISSN 0123-3068.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/bccm.2018.22.2.2.

Objectives:

Evaluate the lime sulphur as an ecological alternative for the management of the coffee berry borer Hypothenemus hampei under controlled laboratory conditions. Scope: Lethal and sublethal doses of lime sulphur on H. hampei.

Methodology:

The broth lime sulphur (31.5 degrees Baumé) was evaluated on coffee berry borer using lethal and sublethal doses. The concentration-mortality curves were estimated by Probit analysis.

Main results:

The lime sulphur presented an insecticidal effect on the coffee berry borer. The highest mortality percentages were obtained four days after application. Lethal (DL50) and sublethal (DL95) doses were 2.2% and 7.1%, respectively.

Conclusions:

Lethal and sublethal doses of the lime sulphur on the coffee berry borer were determined.

Keywords : alternative control; integrated pest management; coffee berry borer.
