A preliminary study of the effect of microwave radiation on granary weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



A preliminary study of the effect of microwave radiation on granary weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Arab Journal of Plant Protection 20(1): 14-17



This study was conducted to examine a modern technique to control store insects by using microwave radiation of various powers and different exposure periods. A microwave oven of 2.45 GHz frequency and 600 W power was used. The infested wheat grains of 12% RH, were exposed to three levels of microwave power (281, 491 and 561 W) for various exposure periods ranging between 25 and 40 seconds at 5 seconds interval.
