Abstract:

In order to evaluate the efficacy of certain grain protectants against Maize Weevil (Sitophilus zeamais; Curculionidae: Coleoptera), an experiment was conducted under laboratory conditions. Neem seed Kernel powder, Neem leaf powder, Inert Charcoal dust, Thiram, Custard apple seed powder, diflubenzuron, lufenuron, flufenoxuron, malathion, pared and dolomite were tested. Observations were recorded for the sex ratio and the number of emerged adults. In Inert dust, thiram, flufenoxuron and malathion treated kernels no adult emergence was observed and were followed by flufenoxuron, diflubenzuron and NSKP excepting pared in which the number of females and males were equal; in all the remaining treatments (in which adults emerged) the number of males was higher than females.


Keywords: Maize, Stored grain pest, Sitophilus zeamais and Grain protectants.
