Durian Pest: Longan Fruit-Borer

Scientific Name: Conogethes punctiferalis (Guenee)

The worm eats a durian peel when the fruit is 2-month-old until it is mature. The worm lives where the fruit contacts or inside the fruit near the calyx, but not through the seed. Therefore, the fruit is rotten and destroyed by the fungi. As a result, the price is very low in the market.

Prevention and Elimination

  • Use The Next 100-150 g. or Phyretoxa200cc. or Bactospin F.C. 800cc.
  • Block the close fruit with twig.
