The palm weevils, Rhynchophorus, have last stage larvae that are highly appreciated by the population of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The population has a poor knowledge of the adult of this insect. We initiated this work to contribute to a better knowledge of the species of Rhynchophorus in the region and, to know their population dynamics. T...

Un inventaire préliminaire des parasitoïdes de Spodoptera frugiperda a été réalisé au quartier Plateau Médical dans la région de Kisangani. Les oeufs et larves du papillon ont été récoltés sur terrain puis conditionnées et suivi au laboratoire dans des tubes à essai et boîtes de Pétri. Les observations ont permis de collecter les parasitoïdes, cons...

La propagation rapide de la chenille légionnaire d’automne, (CLA), (Spodoptera frugiperda J.E. Smith) et les dégâts qu’elle provoque sur les cultures d’Afrique tropicale est inquiétante, notamment par ses effets sur la sécurité alimentaire déjà fragile dans ce territoire. Il est, par conséquent, urgent de renforcer les recherches afin d’aider les...
