Are you at risk of having coconut rhinoceros beetle?

Updated: Apr 19

One of the more complicated questions we get asked at the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) Response is, "how likely is it that I have coconut rhinoceros beetle on my property?"


The answer to that question depends on the areas where you live, work, and recreate, and the type of activities you do regularly. Working with large quantities of potential CRB breeding material and moving it between high- and low-risk areas


The CRB Response team designed this brief set of questions to allow community members to assess their risk for having CRB. If you complete the questions and would like more information about how you can minimize your risk, please leave your contact information so we can follow up.


Know your risk -- take the quiz!


All of our services and recommendations are free, and we'd be happy to work with you to develop a plan to prevent further CRB infestation and protect Oahu's palms.


This quiz is designed for residents of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. CRB have not spread to all areas of Oʻahu and traps at ports on neighbor Hawaiian islands have not detected CRB. However, if you reside on a neighbor island and notice suspicious tree damage, larvae, or beetles, please report it at crbhawaii.org/report. The sooner we are aware of new CRB infestations, the more effective our response can be.
