Agencies out setting traps for invasive beetle species

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Apr 08, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> A mysterious 2-foot-high lantern with the words &quot;USDA QUARANTINE&quot; and &quot;643-PEST&quot; appeared on a tree in the public sidewalk near my house in Ewa by Gentry last week. I searched online and discovered this contraption has to do with the recent discovery of coconut rhinoceros beetles in Hawaii. Does this &quot;CRB trap&quot; confirm the presence of these beetles? Should I be taking precautions around my property?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> No need to worry yet.</p>
