Abstract
Coffee growing in the lower-altitude areas in East Africa has for long been seriously hampered by the activities of the White StemBorer (Anthores leuconotus) and the lack of practicable measures to deal with this pest. Detailed descriptions of the insect and its life history have been given by Knight [1]; control measures have been given by him, by Davies [2), by McDonald, J.H. [3) and McDonald, J. [4). It is not proposed to elaborate further on the bionomics of the insect except to state certain facts regarding its life history as established during a borer-control campaign in Tanganyika.
