The subgeneric classification needs carpophilue be improved on a worldwide base. Eggs are often laid on the silk of corn and have a generation time of 2—4 days. Adult carpophilus can cause feeding damage on ripening stone fruit and is a vector of the fungal disease brown rot.

Carpophilus lugubris

An identification guide Bousquet Y. Approximately six weeks prior to fruit ripening, funnel traps loaded up with an aggregation pheromone, co-attractant and toxicant are placed upwind on the outside of the block.

Bugguide is hosted by: Good fruit fly control will help ensure that there are less damaged fruit on the tree or on the ground. Sap beetles are widely occurring. Driedfruit beetles attack a wide variety of hosts including stone fruit, persimmons, fallen citrus, apples and figs.

Bulletin of Comparative Capophilus Native to North America, C. We strive to provide fujgi information, but we are mostly just amateurs attempting to make sense of a diverse natural world. Journal of Economic Entomology Adults lay eggs in rotting or damaged fruit on the orchard floor.

This synthetic odor also elicited beetle attraction in the wind tunnel at levels comparable to the inoculated banana. Scientists believe that the nematode carpophiluz the body of the beetle in late summer when they are pupating in the soil. The body of the larvae bears few hairs, and is equipped with hardened projections from the end of the abdomen that are species specific.


The number of generations encountered in the literature was found to vary and may be as result of differences in latitude, temperature, availability of suitable food sources, position of monitoring catpophilus and some confusion with overlapping generations.

Nitidulidae and other kernel damaging insects in Bt and non- Bt sweet corn in Illinois. The strawberry sap beetles adult, Stelidota geminatais less than 2.

Dried Fruit Beetle (Carpophilus)-pest of stone fruit

Summer rainfall and rotting of fruit provides the best conditions for beetle fugni. If you need expert professional advice, contact your local extension office. Maize sap beetles appear to be well adapted for vectoring mycotoxigenic fungi, including species in the genera AspergillusPenicillium and Fusarium.

In Ohio the strawberry sap beetle attacks ripe, nearly ripe or decaying strawberry fruit by boring into the berry and devouring a portion in the field. Dry summer and autumn conditions reduce the threat in the following season by cafpophilus less favourable breeding conditions.

In summer, 28 to 30 days elapse between egg deposition and adult emergence. Contributors own the copyright to and are solely responsible for contributed content. Description Back to Top Adults: Sap beetles are considered minor pests of field and sweet corn and strawberries in Florida. Dowd’s study showed that direct damage can be induced by dusky sap beetles. Distribution Back to Top Sap beetles are widely occurring.

Biological studies on the Nitidulid beetles found in pineapple fields Nitidulidae Coleoptera. Like other sap beetles, fruit secretions are the primary food source, but they will also consume fungi, decomposing fruit and even pollen. However, in recent years chemicals suitable for corn earworm and fall armyworm control has not been effective for sap beetle control. Epuraea luteolus is reported as an introduction to Florida and is widely distributed.


These include the dusky sap beetle Carpophilus lugubris Murray on field and sweet corn; the corn sap beetle, Carpophilus dimidiatus on field corn; the complex Carpophilus dimidiatus F. Stelidota geminatathe strawberry sap beetle, migrates each spring from overwintering sites.

A summary of experiments for control of sap beetles which attack fruit crops. Baits using such material can be effective in trapping and monitoring sap beetle populations, and hence determine when treatment is necessary.

Nitidulidae in Texas oak wilt centers. Mature larvae emerge from the fruit and pupate in the ground. The adults are also attracted to insect and plant volatiles produced by ear-wounding damage of the corn earworm Helicoverpa zea.

They can be czrpophilus, brown or mottled yellow. The adults lay their eggs in rotting or damaged fruit on the ground and the larvae develop within the fruit.
