Laboratory investigations of incense fumigation against some stored product pests



Laboratory investigations of incense fumigation against some stored product pests



Zeitschrift fuer Angewandte Entomologie 96(5): 448-451



Incenses from Boswellia or Commiphora species (Burseraceae) often were used [in ancient religious ceremonies, in embalming and other superstitious practices]. In this respect, the effects of insence on stored-product pests was studied. A defined number of Sitotroga cerealella (Oliv.), Acanthoscelides obtectus (Say), Sitophilus granarius (L.), Tribolium confusum J. du V. and Tenebrio molitor L. was placed in a tight chamber and fumigated with pure resin incenses and incense cones for 24 h. In addition, marigold blossom and pine sawmill fumigations also were tested. After 24 h of incense fumigation, 98% of Sitotroga cerealella moths were killed, compared to only 44% of A. obtectus. Marigold blossom and pine sawmill fumigations affected 10% of S. cereallella, but had no effect upon the other species tested. After-effects of incense fumigation were noticed with A. obtectus, hence an additional 18% of the fumigated beetles died within 7 days post-treatment. No effect was noticed with the other investigated pests, either during or after fumigation.
