Passer domesticus , Turdus merula, Sturnus spp. In India, stored rice (unhusked) samples, drawn from six districts of Himachal Pradesh, were infested with S. oryzae (69%); the average weight loss in storage was 2.11%, and ranged from 1.09% to 3.10% (Thakur and Sharma, 1996). The detailed map plotted on the basis of actual country records gives a falsely restricted distribution. In the tropics, cereal grain insects including S. oryzae cause an estimated overall yield loss of up to 30%, especially under inadequate storage methods (Singh and Benazet, 1974). Control of stored-product moths and beetles by suboptimum temperatures. Thus, the information given below may be taken as generally applicable to both species, but it should be remembered that there may be specific differences in details.

Voracious feeding on whole grains by this insect results in weight loss, fungal growth, quality loss through an increase in free fatty acids and it can even completely destroy stored grain in all types of storage. Evaluation of insecticides for control of Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), and Rhyzopertha dominica (Fab.) The results showed that all larvae and adults of S. oryzae were collected. According to Rubbi and Begum (1986), in Bangladesh the population of Sitotroga cerealella was highest, followed by S. oryzae and then Rhyzopertha dominica, and the percentage loss in weight of the rice followed the same order.Sittisuang and Imura (1987) reported that brown rice lost 19% of initial kernel weight over 14 weeks of infestation with S. oryzae.

S. zeamais and S. oryzae are found in all warm and tropical parts of the world, but S. oryzae may also be found in temperate climates. First described by Linnaeus in 1798 as Curculio oryza, the first named species of the group was later revised by De Clairville and Scheltenburg in 1798 as Calandra oryzae, which uses the commonest generic synonym for Sitophilus. Es muy difÃcil de distinguir de Sitophilus zeamais, cuyo tamaÃ±o es ligeramente superior y prefiere el maÃz. Con el producto cosechado los adultos prefieren alimentarse de granos partidos, aunque pueden daÃ±ar tambiÃ©n los sanos. In Egypt, weight losses attributable to S. oryzae and S. granarius in grain stored, under natural conditions, at 25°C and 70% RH, were about 79-81% in barley (Koura and El-Halfawy, 1972).Maize La limpieza del lugar antes de introducir el grano se puede llevar a cabo mediante pulverizaciÃ³n a base de metil pirimifos. Due to the variable regulations around (de)registration of pesticides, your national list of registered pesticides or relevant authority should be consulted to determine which products are legally allowed for use in your country when considering chemical control. Unfortunately, few workers recognized this revision and the name Calandra oryzae continued to be applied to all insects in this complex. Entomological Problems in Bolivia. Therefore the only true and unconfused synonym of S. oryzae is Calandra sasakii; in pre-1960s literature, C. oryzae 'small' and 'large' forms could refer to either S. zeamais or S. oryzae, and it is also possible that some references to 'S.

According to Kamel and Zewar (1973), an increase of 1% in mean infestation resulted in a decrease of 0.35% in the weight of maize kernels and a 0.41% weight decrease in millet kernels. There are four larval instars: in English wheat at 25°C and 70% RH, pupation occurs after about 25 days, although development periods are extremely protracted at low temperatures (e.g. Loss of protein due to insect feeding in maize (Zea mays L.).
