Turkey has an important role in the world’s chestnut production. Pest is one of the important factor which affects yield and production. According to observations in recent years, Ambrosia beetles had damaged chestnut trees. Ambrosia beetles are known to dry out branches of hazelnut trees in the Black Sea region, causing significant loss and threatening hazelnut production. In addition, this pest occasionally damages pome and drupes. This study was carried out on the Cilek Tepesi plot of Ali Nihat Gokyigit Research Station in Kayaguney village of Samsun province. The experiment was carried out to determine the damage ratio of the Ambrosia beetle in 4 different hybrid chestnut genotypes in two-year-old chestnut trees. To determine the damage ratio, all holes drilled by the Ambrosia beetles were counted. As a result of the study, the highest number of holes per plant was found in A14 genotype (1.99) and the lowest was in Marigoule cultivar (0.33). In A25 and A100 genotypes, 0.96 and 1.09 holes per plant were found respectively. As a result A14 genotype had been found more sensitive to chestnut Ambrosia beetle than any other cultivar or genotype.
