In June 2014, the Hawaii Department of Agriculture approved and funded a research and development proposal titled “Predation by the Square-Necked Grain Beetle, Cathartus quadricollis, on Coffee Berry Borer (CBB).  This project, co-authored by UH-CTAHR’s coffee and orchard crop assistant extension agent, Andrea Kawabata and USDA ARS DKI PBARC’s research entomologist, Dr. Peter Follett, will be hosting an exciting, new educational and interactive workshop called “An Introduction to Beetle Predators of Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) in Hawaii.” The goal of this 2-session workshop is to introduce growers and the public to current research efforts of better understanding beetle predators of CBB found here in Hawaii.  This is a free event.
