Weston PA, Rattlingourd PL (1999) Ovipositional stimuli of Angoumois grain moth
(Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae), a primary pest of stored grains.
'Among the more important pests are the granary weevil, rice weevil, lesser grain borer, Angoumois grain moth
, confused flour beetle and the saw-toothed grain beetle.
To minimize the infestation level of sugarcane stem borer, Trichogramma chilonis (Ishii) (Hymeoptera: Trichogrammatidae) was reared on a fictitious host, stored grain pest Angoumois grain moth
Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in the laboratory of Ayub Agriculture Research Institute, Faisalabad, under controlled temperature 252C and relative humidity 60-70% and released in the field as bio-control agent.
Resistance in stored rice varieties against Angoumois grain moth
, Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae).
During storage, these cereals are vulnerable to infestation by a variety of insects, especially to Angoumois grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) which has a cosmopolitan distribution (Cotton, 1960) and has displayed an affinity for rice varieties with different levels of resistance (Rizwana et al., 2011).
Development of Angoumois grain moth could possibly be managed by altering nutritive and physical characteristics of cereals (Gomez et al., 1983; Tipping et al., 1988).
Some effects of rice varieties on the biology of the Angoumois grain moth., Sitotroga cerealella.
For example Angoumois grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae); lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae); weevils complex, Sitophilus spp.
