PAZ, Jean Kelson da Silva et al. Monitoring of coleoborers associated to mango tree in José de Freitas city, state of Piauí, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.2, pp. 348-355. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452008000200014.
This research was developed from June 2004 to May 2005, under field conditions, aiming the recognition of species of coleoborers that are associated to commercial mango orchard (Mangifera indica L.) of varieties Tommy Atkins, Keitt, Kent and Palmer, in José de Freitas city, state of Piauí. It was installed two ethanolics traps model Carvalho 47 in each area of the related varieties and weekly collections were realized. Coleoborers were separated of the vegetal residues, dried under light bulb and quantified. Samples of each morphspecies were collected and mounted in entomologic pins then sent for identification. Coleoborers of the families, Bostrichidae, Cerambycidae and Curculionidae are associated to the varieties of mangoes cultivated in José de Freitas city, state of Piauí, highlighting the species Hylettus seniculus (Germar) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), Hypothenemus sp. 1 and sp. 2 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), presenting bigger numerical expression and variety of morphspecies during the period of lower pluviometric precipitation, this factor presenting positive correlation with the Cerambycidae family.
