Abstract
Predatory histerid beetles Plaesius javanus were sollected in Bukit Tinggi and Sitiung. This experiment was carried out at laboratory of Research Institute for Fruits from April to December 2001. The objective of this study was to know the prey potential of predatory beetle, Plaesius javanus to control difference stadium of development of banana weevil borer. The result showed that both stages of Plaesius javanus effectively prayed banana weevil borer. During the adult stage when exposed to different stadium of development of weevil borer, each individual of Plaesius javanus was able to prey 7.7, 4.9, 3.9, 2.9, 2.0, 2.0 and 1.9 individual prey respectively for egg, larva 2, larva 3, larva 4, larva 5, pupa and adult. Searching ability of larva prey has highest to find and able to prey of banana weevil compare to adult of prey. The prey female effectively preyed of weevil stage compare the prey male.
