Effect of inorganic salts on longevity and reproduction of the granary weevil sitophilus granarius coleoptera curculionidae



Effect of inorganic salts on longevity and reproduction of the granary weevil sitophilus granarius coleoptera curculionidae



Polskie Pismo Entomologiczne 50(2): 299-307



Longevity and reproduction of the granary weevils, S. granarius L. kept in salt-impregnated wheat grain were studied. The granary weevils are highly resistant to the surplus of most inorganic salts in the external layers of wheat grains. The following compounds cause high mortality of the insects and suppression of their feeding and reproduction: KI, KIO3, NaF and HgCl2. Iodine salts, known to cause an antifertility effect in some insects and acarid mites, affected the longevity of S. granarius as well as their reproduction.
