Sweetpotato Weevil

I am interested in collaborators with sweetpotato weevil. Any one in Puerto Rico interested in cooperating on sweetpotato weevil monitoring and best management program should contact me.  I have some SPW traps and pheromones to place in PR. I will be attending the SE Branch ESA meetings in San Juan in March 2011.

I can be contacted via email at" kenneth_sorensen@ncsu.edu"


Should anyone have contacts in PR I welcome their name and email.

  • I have just completed 2.5 months as a Plant Inspector with NC Dept. of Ag.  I assembled and place SPW traps in grower fields in Johnston County, NC. With almost 1600 traps in 10,000 acres in 670 fields in 2011 I did not find any SPW. Colleagues in other NC counties found no sweetpotato weevils either.  That is great news!! 


    Any reports on SPW in other states or countries are welcomed.
