Abstract
It is true that practical application to the control of insect pests of the knoledge so far gained on the climatic conditions in coffee plantations is in many cases at present impossible. This is largely due to our existing ignorance as to what exactly are the optimum conditions for the majority of insects. It is. however. suggested that it is no longer accurate for anyone. whether planter or entomol~ogist. to say. "The causes of such and such an outbreak are climatic. and therefore nothing can ever be done about it."
