Vitamin requirement of Rhizopertha dominica (Fabricius)

Vitamin requirement of Rhizopertha dominica (Fabricius)

Indian Journal of Entomology, 504: 476-479

The effect of various vitamins of the B complex on the growth and survival of Rhyzopertha dominica was studied. The pest was reared on diet pellets or wheat grains. The percentage of adults developing in diets lacking any one of the essential vitamins was low. Diets lacking p-amino benzoic acid or folic acid were significantly superior to a diet with all vitamins, indicating that these vitamins had a deleterious effect.
