Coffee Berry Borer (CBB), a damaging pest of coffee, was found on Oahu in 2014 and has continued to spread to farms on the island. This beetle bores into the fruit and damages the seed, affecting coffee yield and quality. If left uncontrolled, CBB can cause over 80% cherry infestation and lead to immense damage to the Hawaii coffee industry. CBB is controlled using integrated pest management (IPM), which uses a combination of different techniques, as no single method will control CBB on its own.
