Effect of gamma radiation on the adult stage of the granary weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Effect of gamma radiation on the adult stage of the granary weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Egypt, Economic Series 1990; ( 16): 49-54



In the laboratory, gamma radiation (10-15 Gy) caused less than 50% mortality of 1- to 3-day-old adults of Sitophilus granarius after 45 days. Treatment with radiation doses of more than 50 Gy caused 100% mortality of 2-week-old adults within 10-25 days of treatment. Older adults were more sensitive to the radiation than were young adults. The number of eggs laid by females was reduced by treatment, irrespective of whether the treated female mated with treated or untreated males.
