Host preference of Callosobruchus maculatus: a comparison of life history characteristics for three strains of beetles on two varieties of cowpea
Abstract:  The reproductive success of Callosobruchus maculatus Fabricius, the main insect pest of stored cowpea, may vary between strains of this beetle and between varieties of the host seeds. LifeExpand
Insecticidal activity of four essential oils on the survival and oviposition of two sympatric bruchid species: Callosobruchus maculatus F. and Callosobruchus subinnotatus PIC. (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidea: Bruchinae)
The essential oil of C. giganteus was the most toxic to adults of both bruchid species and can be used in stocks of cowpea and bambara groundnuts for adult control and prevent female oviposition. Expand
Eco-Friendly Management of Pulse Beetle ( Callosobruchus Chinensis ) By Using Different Plant Materials
Legumes (pulses) are ancient crops of the Sub-continent, Middle East and various parts of the Africa. These provide high quality protein and considered to be the best food for vegetarian populationExpand
Toxicity and repellence of African plants traditionally used for the protection of stored cowpea against Callosobruchus maculatus
Results indicate that botanical products may provide effective control of C. maculatus in cowpea and that traditionally used African plants were repellent to the beetle. Expand
The study was carried out in the Laboratory of Entomology, Faculty of Agriculture, Sylhet Agricultural University, Sylhet during October to December 2014 with a view to assessing the effectiveness ofExpand
Efficacy of Entomopathogenic Nematode Steinernema feltiae (Filipjev) as a Biological Control Agent of Lentil Weevil, Bruchus lentis, Under Laboratory Conditions
Positive characteristics of entomopathogenic nematodes as biological control factors of arthropod pests, introduce them as an appropriate option for controlling the integrated pest management of lentil weevil. Expand
Insecticidal effect of some spices on Callosobruchus maculatus (Fabricius) in black gram seeds
All the spices were effective as protectants of black gram seeds, however, clove and black pepper were most effective. Expand
Bio-Insecticidal Potency of Five Plant Extracts against Cowpea Weevil, Callosobruchus maculatus (F.), on Stored Cowpea, Vigna unguiculata (L)
It is estimated that the global post-harvest grain losses caused by insect damage and other bio-agents ranged between 10 to 40%. Small-scale farmers may lose up to 80% of their stock due to insectExpand
Fumigant Effect of Some Essential Oils Against Pulse Beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (Fab.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
It can be concluded that camphor, eucalyptus, nutmeg, rosemary, wintergreen oils showed very good fumigant and ovicidal activity and the possibility of utilising these plant oils to control C. maculatus in storage conditions may warrant further investigation. Expand
Effect of katel-sous dust and clove powder and their mixtures on the cowpea seed beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) (Coleoptera: bruchidae)
Clove powder and katel-sous dust and its combinations made a sharp reduction in the number of eggs laid and theNumber of adults emerged and the availability to use these products to control cowpea seed beetle and consider clove powder as spiracle-blocking insecticides. Expand


Laboratory Evaluation of Piper guineense for the Protection of Cowpea Against Callosobruchus maculatus
The efficacy of the powder and volatile oil of Piper guineense Schum & Thonn at protecting cowpea against seed beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) was tested in the laboratory. At lowExpand
Host Plant Resistance for Cowpea Insect Pest Management
The long term strategy is to develop cowpea cultivars with multiple resistance to insect and diseases with superior agronomic characters and local adaptability. Expand
