          Resumen La captura masiva es una técnica ampliamente considerada en el control de la plaga del café de mayor importancia económica en el ámbito mundial. Este trabajo se efectuó en la provincia de Rodríguez de Mendoza, región Amazonas, Perú, con el objetivo de analizar el efecto de trampas artesanales de diferentes colores y atrayentes alcohólicos en la captura de adultos de broca del café Hypothenemus hampei, en una plantación altamente infestada, y su implicancia en la reducción de la incidencia del daño causado por esta plaga. Se evaluaron seis tratamientos generados a partir de la combinación de niveles de los siguientes factores color (transparente, rojo y verde) y atrayentes alcohólicos (sin y con esencia de café). El ensayo fue conducido en un diseño de experimento en bloques completos al azar y se midió la incidencia de daño por broca del café en mediciones periódicas de cada 30 días, mientras que los niveles de captura (adultos/trampa) se evaluaron cada 15 días. Los datos obtenidos se sometieron a un análisis de covarianza, detectando diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre los tratamientos y una vez aplicada la prueba de comparaciones múltiples, específicamente diferencia mínima significativa, se evidenció que la trampa de color rojo sin esencia de café capturó un mayor número de adultos (con un máximo de 4.000 adultos/trampa/semana) y resultó ser más efectiva en la reducción de la incidencia (43,7 % menos respecto a la incidencia inicial). Por otro lado, la trampa menos efectiva fue la transparente sin esencia de café.

          Abstract Mass capture is a technique widely considered in the control of the coffee plague of greater economic importance in the world. This work was carried out in the province of Rodríguez de Mendoza, Amazonas region, Peru, with the objective of analyzing the effect of artisanal traps of different colors and attractive alcoholics in the capture of coffee borer adults, Hypothenemus hampei, in a highly infested plantation, and its implication in reducing the incidence of damage caused by this pest. Six treatments generated from the combination of levels of the following color factors (transparent, red and green) and alcoholic attractants (without and with coffee essence) were evaluated. The test was conducted in a randomized complete block experiment design. The incidence of coffee berry bore damage was measured in periodic measurements every 30 days, while the capture levels (adults / trap) were evaluated every 15 days. The obtained data was subjected to an analysis of covariance, detecting statistically significant differences between the treatments and once applied the multiple comparisons test, specifically minimum significant difference, it was evidenced that the red trap without essence of coffee captured a greater number of adults (with a maximum of 4,000 adults / trap / week) and proved to be more effective in reducing the incidence (43.7 % less than the initial incidence). On the other hand, the least effective trap was the transparent one without coffee essence.

          Some Like It Hot: The Influence and Implications of Climate Change on Coffee Berry Borer (Hypothenemus hampei) and Coffee Production in East Africa

          The negative effects of climate change are already evident for many of the 25 million coffee farmers across the tropics and the 90 billion dollar (US) coffee industry. The coffee berry borer (Hypothenemus hampei), the most important pest of coffee worldwide, has already benefited from the temperature rise in East Africa: increased damage to coffee crops and expansion in its distribution range have been reported. In order to anticipate threats and prioritize management actions for H. hampei we present here, maps on future distributions of H. hampei in coffee producing areas of East Africa. Using the CLIMEX model we relate present-day insect distributions to current climate and then project the fitted climatic envelopes under future scenarios A2A and B2B (for HADCM3 model). In both scenarios, the situation with H. hampei is forecasted to worsen in the current Coffea arabica producing areas of Ethiopia, the Ugandan part of the Lake Victoria and Mt. Elgon regions, Mt. Kenya and the Kenyan side of Mt. Elgon, and most of Rwanda and Burundi. The calculated hypothetical number of generations per year of H. hampei is predicted to increase in all C. arabica-producing areas from five to ten. These outcomes will have serious implications for C. arabica production and livelihoods in East Africa. We suggest that the best way to adapt to a rise of temperatures in coffee plantations could be via the introduction of shade trees in sun grown plantations. The aims of this study are to fill knowledge gaps existing in the coffee industry, and to draft an outline for the development of an adaptation strategy package for climate change on coffee production.

            Functional haplodiploidy: a mechanism for the spread of insecticide resistance in an important international insect pest.

            The coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei, is the most important insect pest of coffee worldwide and has an unusual life history that ensures a high degree of inbreeding. Individual females lay a predominantly female brood within individual coffee berries and because males are flightless there is almost entirely full sib mating. We investigated the genetics associated with this interesting life history after the important discovery of resistance to the cyclodiene type insecticide endosulfan. Both the inheritance of the resistance phenotype and the resistance-associated point mutation in the gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor gene Rdl were examined. Consistent with haplodiploidy, males failed to express and transmit paternally derived resistance alleles. Furthermore, while cytological examination revealed that males are diploid, one set of chromosomes was condensed, and probably nonfunctional, in the somatic cells of all males examined. Moreover, although two sets of chromosomes were present in primary spermatocytes, the chromosomes failed to pair before the single meiotic division, and only one set was packaged in sperm. Thus, the coffee berry borer is "functionally" haplodiploid. Its genetics and life history may therefore represent an interesting intermediate step in the evolution of true haplodiploidy. The influence of this breeding system on the spread of insecticide resistance is discussed.

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

              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 conducted to manage CBB around the world. In addition, sampling methods including the use of alcohol based traps for monitoring CBB populations have been implemented in some coffee producing countries in Latin America. It is currently unclear which combination of CBB control strategies is optimal under economical, environmental, and sociocultural conditions of Hawaii. This review discusses components of an integrated pest management program for CBB. We focus on practical approaches to provide guidance to coffee farmers in Hawaii. Experiences of integrated pest management (IPM) of CBB learned from Latin America over the past 25 years may be relevant for establishing strategies of control that may fit under Hawaiian coffee farmers’ conditions.
