Tribolium confusum( Jacquelin) and Tribolium castaneum (Herbst), are widespread insects that attacks stored grains and foods in several commodities . The potential of NanoDiatomaceous earth (Nano-DE) in comparison with natural Diatomaceous earth (DE) against the red flour beetle T. castaneum and the confused flour beetle, T. confusum under laboratory and stored conditions was evaluated .Percentage of larval mortality of tested insects increased with increase in the treatment concentrations… Expand

Comparative bioassay of silver nanoparticles and malathion on infestation of red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum
BackgroundInsecticide resistance is the major threat in pest control management. Formulation with silver nanoparticle can be used as an alternative method to overcome these problems. NanoparticlesExpand
Comparative insecticidal activity of nano and coarse silica on the Chinese beetle Callosobruchus Chinensis (L) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
TLDR
Nano-silica particles (NSPs) were found to be effective against the bruchid beetle C. chinensis and could be effectively used in the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for C. chinesis and for other stored grain insectpests. Expand
Changes in the nutritional composition of maize flour due to Tribolium castaneum infestation and application of carbon dioxide to manage this pest
TLDR
Maize flour was infested with fresh emerged Tribolium castaneum adults, and its nutritional composition was evaluated after 0, 45, and 90 days of the infestation, and results indicated that pupa was the most resilient stage as compared with larvae and adult stage. Expand
Effect of cinnamon oil encapsulated with silica nanoparticles on some biological and biochemical aspects of the rice moth, Corcyra cephalonica (Staint.) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
Abstract Bioassays were carried out to evaluate the effect of sub-lethal concentration (LC50) of mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), cinnamon oil encapsulated with silica nanoparticles (CESN),Expand
Ecofriendly Synthesis and Insecticidal Application of Copper Nanoparticles against the Storage Pest Tribolium castaneum
TLDR
The results suggest that Bio CuNPs could be used not only as a biocontrol agent, but also as an ecofriendly and inexpensive approach for controlling the stored grain pests. Expand
Synthesis and entomotoxicity assay of zinc and silica nanoparticles against Sitophilus granarius (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
Silica nanoparticles (SNPs) were found to be highly effective against S. granarius causing 100% mortality after 2 weeks and ZNPs were moderately effective against this pest. Expand
Cumulative effects of volcanic ash on the food preferences of two Orthopteran species
TLDR
It is proposed that some behavioral responses such as avoidance of places with ash, works as tolerance mechanism to inert dusts exposure. Expand

Insecticidal efficacy of diatomaceous earth against Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and Tribolium confusum du Val (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) on stored wheat: influence of dose rate, temperature and exposure interval
TLDR
For both species, dose rate, temperature and exposure interval significantly affected mortality (P), and the insecticidal effect of a diatomaceous earth formulation against Sitophilus oryzae and Tribolium confusum on stored wheat was assessed. Expand
Susceptibility of different European populations of Tribolium confusum (coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) to five diatomaceous earth formulations.
TLDR
Evaluating the susceptibility of seven populations (strains) of the confused flour beetle to five commercially available diatomaceous earth (DE) formulations found the strains from Denmark, United Kingdom, and Germany were the most susceptible to the DEs used, whereas the strain from Portugal was the least susceptible.

EFFICACY OF THREE ENTOMOPATHOGENIC FUNGI ALONE OR IN COMBINATION WITH DIATOMACEOUS EARTH MODIFICATIONS FOR THE CONTROL OF THREE PYRALID MOTHS IN STORED GRAINS
TLDR
The most effective DEs modification were Ca-DE and Na-DE had insecticidal, repellent and ovicidal effects against tested insects and they had synergistic effects on the potency of tested fungi. Expand
Insecticidal effects of modified diatomaceous earth (DE) with different hydroxides (MOH, M=Na,Ca,Al) against Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) beetles (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) on stored cowpea grains.
TLDR
The most effective DE modification was Ca-DE which has insecticidal, repellent and ovicidal effects against C. maculatus and can be used effectively in a stored grain integrated pest management program. Expand
Control of Bruchidius incarnatus and Rhyzopertha Dominica using two entomopathogenic fungi alone or in combination with modified diatomaceous earth

Insecticidal efficacy of diatomaceous earth against Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
Young larvae of red flour beetle were more sensitive to SilicoSec ® than old larvae and adults were more tolerant, so reproductive potential of adults in treated wheat was suppressed when compared with untreated wheat. Expand
Influence of grain type on the susceptibility of different Sitophilus oryzae (L.) populations, obtained from different rearing media, to three diatomaceous earth formulations
TLDR
Protect-It™ and PyriSec ® were more effective than DEBBM in wheat or barley, but not in maize, and DE effectiveness was always lower in maize than in Wheat or barley irrespective of the commodity from which the populations were obtained. Expand
