There minuyus three generations in China and three to four in South Asia, per year, but the generations are heavily overlapped. Handbook of urban insects and arachnids: The incidence of borer attacks has a strong correlation to the richness of nutrients in felled culms, and vary significantly with bamboo species, growing sites, timing and culm age at felling, and the method of transportation and storage.

This method may only be effective in preventing damage from minuutus beetles. Plant Quarantine, 13 1: There is a risk that the larvae, pupae and adults may stay in the tunnels of the bamboo culms, facilitating transport of D.

The females begin to deposit eggs individually, in tunnels mined by the adults in mid-April, and oviposition can last 4 months.

It can also feed on dry cassava Mathew and Nair, All imported wood, containers and products are treated by government pest control operators using fumigation and heating, for example, if some symptoms of defoliation are detected Xu Changtang, Study on Chemical Control of Dinoderus minutus.

It also damages rice, cassava and sugarcane, and occasionally dried stored products. Journal of Fujian Agricultural College, 1: These natural enemies cannot be relied upon as an effective control method, although they can cause high mortality of the borers. Bamboos growing on plateau are more dinkderus damaged than those growing in mountains, and those felled in spring and summer are more readily attacked than those felled in autumn and winter.

Large populations of borers will leave numerous tunnels in the culm, making it useless. According to XiaoBambusa textilis, Bambusa pervariabilis, Phyllostachys dinoferus and Minutis heteroclada are more prone to attack by D. Beijing, China Agricultural Press, The larvae bore longitudinally in the culm, which can make a tunnel approximately 15 to 20 mm long and take about 40 days dimoderus develop.

Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station Report, In storage yards, stacks with immature culms are the starting points for attack and the bamboo is often converted to dust.

It has been detected and caught in many open ports Xie Sen et al. Some advanced microwave and infrared techniques have recently been developed for killing the borers in bamboo culms Yao Kang et al. Moreover, culms felled dnioderus a young age are more seriously damaged than those grown for 3 to 4 years. Datasheet Dinoderus minutus bamboo borer.

Damages usually result in the loss of large amounts of raw materials or in the destruction of finished bamboo products. Selecting the best option depends on a number of dinoderks, such as the severity of infestation, the location of infestation, potential for reinfestation, and cost of treatment Plank, ; Xu Tiansen, ; Kumar et al.
