Beetles

From what I understand, and it is not much, this Beetle started when the Brazilian farmers were forced to stop use of a certain pesticide.

1. Are the farmers NOW able to use this pesticide?
2. How are the farmers fighting this infestation?
3. How much worse can this get? (Florida orange farmers are still dealing with a beetle issue which caused havoc on their crop).

Can this have a 50% plus reduction of the coffee crop in future years?
