Attagenus fasciatus (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) - a new pest of stored groundnuts



Attagenus fasciatus (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) - a new pest of stored groundnuts



International Arachis Newsletter (2): 12-13



Attagenus fasciatus is recorded as a pest of stored groundnuts in India for the first time. The life cycle and damage caused are described. The egg, larval and pupal stages lasted for 7, 399 and 17 days, respectively, at 25 degrees C and 75% RH. Infestation of 100 pods and 100 kernels with 50 young larvae resulted in 60% of the kernels being damaged by the end of the larval stage, with a 4.3% reduction in mass. Of the pods 16% were damaged, resulting in a 5.1% reduction in mass.
