Laboratory evaluation of dust spray and aerosol preparations for control of stored product beetles

Laboratory evaluation of dust spray and aerosol preparations for control of stored product beetles

Annales Agriculturae Fenniae 21(4): 177-183

A laboratory test method for dust, spray and aerosol preparations was used to evaluate the effect of insecticides on larvae of Attagenus woodroffei (Halstead and Green), Tribolium confusum Duv. and T. destructor Uytt. and adults of Rhyzopertha dominica (F.), Oryzaephilus surinamensis (L.) and T. confusum. A good general effect on beetles was achieved by preparations containing DDT/lindane, lindane, bendiocarb, diazinon, fenitrothion, chlorpyriphos and phoxim. Bromophos, fenchlorphos and malathion were also effective on most species. The effect of pyrethrins varied much according to the preparations. A good general view of the effect of various insecticides on beetles can be obtained by using 3 insect species (larvae of A. woodroffei and T. confusun and adults of O. surinamensis), because of their different susceptibilities. The method is considered suitable but can be improved by using a shorter exposure time. In addition, testing of the residual effect using various materials instead of only filter papers and also using lower temperatures would provide valuable information for practical control purposes.
