The efficiency of neem flower and fruit powders against Trogoderma granarium Everts adults infesting stored rice grains (Coleoptera: Dermestidae)


, : The efficiency of neem flower and fruit powders against Trogoderma granarium Everts adults infesting stored rice grains (Coleoptera: Dermestidae). Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Egypt, Economic Series1989 1991; ( 17): 93-99

Flowers and fruits of neem were sun-dried and powdered, and added to stored rice. The effect on artificially introduced Tribolium castaneum was assessed. In rice treated with the powdered flowers at 1 and 2%, adult mortality was 66 and 61%, resp., after 7 days, compared to 22% in untreated rice. When the treated rice had been stored for 12 months, mortality of artificially introduced adults was 95 and 91% by 7 days after introduction, compared with 22% in the control.
