Description: Several artificial diets were evaluated as alternatives to decomposing pineapple [Ananas comosus (L.) Merrill] for culture of Rhynchophorus cruentatus (F.) larvae. The most suitable diet tested for larval growth and survival was a combination of canned pineapple, oats, sucrose, molasses, brewers yeast, Wesson's salts, vitamins and preservatives. Diets that were not supplemented with brewers yeast provided poor larval growth arid survival. Larvae cultured from artificial diets were placed in sugarcane (Saccharum officinaram L.) foi population.
