Abstract: Published methods to isolate DNA from insects are not always effective in xylophagous insects because they have high concentrations of phenolics and other secondary plant compounds in their digestive tracts. A simple, reliable and labor-effective cetyltrimethylammonium bromide-polyvinylpyrrolidone (CTAB-PVP) method for isolation of high quality DNA from xylophagous insects is described. This method was successfully applied to PCR and restriction analysis, indicating removal of common inhibitors. DNA isolated by the CTAB-PVP method could be used in most molecular analyses.
