The lesser grain-borer, Rhizopertha dominica (Fabricius, 1792)



The lesser grain-borer, Rhizopertha dominica (Fabricius, 1792)



Praktischer Schadlingsbekampfer 32(5): 62-67



A review is presented of the morphology, biology, noxiousness, distribution and control of the stored-grain pest Rhyzopertha dominica (F.), on the basis of the literature. The pest is controlled by spraying or fumigating empty stores but has developed resistance to common insecticides such as malathion and lindane in many countries.
