Carbon dioxide concentrations associated with insect infestations of stored grain 2. infestation in wheat filled jars



Carbon dioxide concentrations associated with insect infestations of stored grain 2. infestation in wheat filled jars



Sciences des Aliments 6(1): 99-106



The rates of carbon dioxide production by Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) and Cryptolestes ferrugineus (Stephens) in separate and combined populations were measured at 27.5 and 33.degree. C and reported both descriptively and statistically. The mesurements were made with 0.24 l glass-jars filled with wheat and initially infested with 12 adult insects per jar. Regression equations based on stepwise multiple regression analyses of the data on levels of CO2 revealed significant relationships between CO2 concentrations and individual life stages of T. castaneum and C. ferrugineus, the latter produced less CO2 than the former species. The results also provide baseline data for developing prediction models that may allow for the determination of the levels of hidden infestations and incipient grain spoilage in a granary.
