Coffee Berry Borer (Hypothenemus hampei)
In August 2010, the coffee berry borer was found in South Kona, Island of Hawai‘i, and its identity was confirmed by Dr. Natalia J. Vandenberg (Systematic Entomology Laboratory, USDA-ARS). The infestation in South Kona extends from north of Kainaliu to south of ‘Opihihale (Hawai‘i Department of Agriculture 2010), which indicates that the insect has been present in the island for some time.
