Efficacy of some plant products as grain protectants against Rhizopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera; Bostrichidae)


, : Efficacy of some plant products as grain protectants against Rhizopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera; Bostrichidae). International Journal of Pest Management 40(1): 94-97

Twenty-two medicinal plant powders, ash of plant origin and sorbic acid were evaluated in the laboratory as protectants of wheat grain against Rhizopertha dominica Powders of roots of Rauwolfia serpentina roots of Acorus calamus, flowers of Messua ferrea and bark of Albizia lebbeck and sorbic acid were effective at 1% (w/w) in an initial test and all these products were further assessed at 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0% (w/w). Rauwolfia serpentina completely inhibited feeding and F1 progeny production.
