DSC 0650  Longitudinally split pseudostem pieces can be used as traps for monitoring and trapping of banana pseudostem weevil. DSC 0646  Longitudinally split pseudostem pieces can be used as traps for monitoring and trapping of banana pseudostem weevil. DSC 0621  Disc-on-stump traps can also be used for monitoring and trapping of pseudostem weevil and are better than longitudinally split traps.
