  • "Have we lost the battle against CRB?"
  • “Are CRB traps just attracting CRB to my property?”
  • “Is it true that once CRB is present, it's impossible to protect my plants?”
  • “Is CRB management only the responsibility of agricultural professionals and not homeowners?”
  • “I've been told mulching is a surefire way to attract CRB. Should I avoid it entirely?”

Join Arisa Barcinas, outreach associate with CRB Response, and Elizabeth Speith from 643pest.org and the Hawai'i Invasive Species Council (HISC), for an enlightening dive into the Hawai'i Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) Communications Plan and current CRB status. The Hawai'i CRB Communications Plan aims to enhance our collective understanding and foster collaborative community action to manage CRB across the state. They will also tackle strategies to combat misinformation and encourage an open discussion to address common misconceptions. The plan was created by a collaboration of CRB communications experts from multiple agencies and groups across the state, reflecting the unique populations and situations faced on each island and underscores the multi-agency approach essential for effective CRB management.
