Some humidity and light reactions of the granary weevil, Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Some humidity and light reactions of the granary weevil, Sitophilus granarius (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Canad. Ent, Ottawa 91(12): 784-797



The following is virtually the authors' summary of the laboratory investigations described. Adults of Sitophilus granarius (L.) sifted from wheat reacted to differences in relative humidity. Conditioning at 0 per cent. relative humidity produced a wet reaction and conditioning at 100 per cent. relative humidity produced an initial dry reaction that changed to a wet one after several hours.
