  • Acoustic detection of wood borers
  • Wood boring cerambycids are economically important pests on several agricultural and horticultural crops and forest tree plantations. Wood borers larvae feed on living, dying, dead, or rotten plant stems, branches, or twigs. Borer infested cashew trees die within a period of 2-3 years, depending upon the pest population.The grubs are tissue borer that remain concealed inside the tree it is very difficult to detect at the initial stage of infestation.Acoustic detection methods have been developed and played a significant role in detecting grain and wood boring insect pests. It is a rapid, non-destructive and automatic monitoring of hidden insect pests. We have proposed acoustic detection methods for early detection of wood borers.
