Control of the egg stage of the larger grain borer, Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae), with phosphine


FAO Plant Protection Bulletin 37(2): 67-70
Control of the egg stage of the larger grain borer, Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae), with phosphine
The efficacy of fumigation with phosphine for the control of Prostephanus truncatus in stored maize was determined at 20, 25 and 27 degrees C and 70% RH, with exposure periods of 3, 5 and 7 days. The susceptibility of the egg stage was dependent on temperature and length of the exposure period. At 20 degrees C an applied dose of 0.3 mg/ litre permitted survival of eggs in maize fumigated for 3 but not 5 or 7 days.
