Genus of beetle native to Europe, the Afro-tropical region, the Australian region, the Near East, the Nearctic, the Neotropical region, North Africa and the Oriental region. 1


The Bostrychid, Sinoxylon sexdentatum, occurs throughout the Mediterranean basin. It is polyphagous but prefers vines, of which it infests withered and dead branches, or those that have been recently cut. The eggs are laid beneath the bark in May and June. The larvae live in the wood, where construct irregular feeding tunnels and pupate near the bark. The adults emerge at the end of summer or in autumn and hibernate in specially excavated shelters or sometimes in the pupal cell.
Heavy infestations of vine borer can reduce wood to a fine dust. The sanitation helps to minimize the damages in vineyards. All pruning, broken branches and slash around vineyards and orchards should be collected and destroyed prior to spring flight. Cultural practices should be followed that maximize plant vigor. Insecticide treatments may be used to protect plantings, but care should be taken to protect parasitoids, which are important regulators of populations. 2 3


In Mediterranean Europe, Sinoxylon perforans and S. sexdentatum are considered important pests of vineyards. 4
