Differences between some strains of stored-grain beetles in their capacity to cause grain damage: possible implications for the management of pesticide resistance



Differences between some strains of stored-grain beetles in their capacity to cause grain damage: possible implications for the management of pesticide resistance



Tropical Science 30(4): 357-371



Using apparent weight loss from laboratory cultures as a convenient parameter of wheat grain damage, substantial differences were found between some field strains (from various countries) of 2 species of stored products pests and laboratory reference strains. Four phosphine-resistant field strains of Rhyzopertha dominica all caused significantly less damage than a susceptible laboratory strain, but 2 susceptible field strains were also less damaging.
