The khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) is a very destructive pest of stored agricultural products and one of the most important quarantine insect pests worldwide. Very strict legislation and other measures are being taken by many countries so as to prevent the introduction of this pest and avoid export restrictions on their agricultural products. In countries where the khapra beetle is established or occasionally detected, classic management tactics are being… 

Khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium interceptions and eradications in Australia and around the world

Comparing response strategies to khapra beetle infestations with the Australian outbreak of the warehouse beetle in 1977 – 1993 is compared and the differences in pest characteristics that led to the successful eradication of one and not the other are explored.

TROGODERMA GRANARIUM (EVERTS) (COLEOPTERA: DERMESTIDAE), AN ALARMING THREAT TO RICE SUPPLY CHAIN IN PAKISTAN

The current status and economic impact of Khapra beetle under storage conditions with special focus on its effects on rice supply chain in Pakistan is described.

A comparative study on the virulence of entomopathogenic fungi against Trogoderma granarium ( Everts ) ( Coleoptera : Dermestidae ) in stored grains rice

The khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium (Everts) (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) due to its voracious eating can withstand starvation for a longer time (Honey et al., 2017) which makes it one of the most

Evaluation of Pyrethroid Insecticides and Insect Growth Regulators Applied to Different Surfaces for Control of Trogoderma granarium (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) the Khapra Beetle.

Evaluated residual efficacy of two pyrethroid insecticides, deltamethrin and cyfluthrin, applied on concrete, wood, painted wood, vinyl flooring tile, and metal surfaces revealed a high level of control of T. granarium larvae, though small larvae were much more susceptible than large larvae.

Combination of Modified Atmosphere and Irradiation for the Phytosanitary Disinfestation of Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera: Dermestidae)

The modified atmosphere (MA), irradiation, and their combination treatments of T. granarium larvae and adults were performed at room temperature to develop an ecofriendly phytosanitary disinfestation measure and to shorten the exposure time and overcome treatment disadvantages of irradiation.

Insecticidal properties and grain protective efficacy of essential oils against stored product insects

Essential oils of three plants, namely Haplophyllum tuberculatum, Psidium guajava and Pinus roxburghii were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS).

Pyrethroid resistance and selection against Trogoderma granarium (Everts) in Punjab, Pakistan

The effectiveness of commonly used pyrethroids for the management of T. granarium was significantly reduced in the field populations exhibiting low to moderate resistance, suggesting long-term use of insecticides with similar mode of action could be the reason for the development of resistance.

Mathematical probit and logistic mortality models of the Khapra beetle fumigated with plant essential oils.

In the current study, probit and logistic models were employed to fit experimental mortality data of the Khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium (Everts) (Coleoptera: Dermestidae), when fumigated with

Findings indicate that the khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium Everts, is capable of becoming a pest of grain stored in piles or sacks in the field in such ellmctes as that of Imperial Valley, California.

Development of a New Trap to Detect and Monitor Khapra Beetle (Coleoptera: Dermestidae)

A vertically arranged wall-mounted trap designed for use in USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine detection programs for Trogoderma granarium Everts (khapra beetle) caught 3.5 times more larvae in 5 d and 4.9 times more males in 1 d compared with a commercial flat-type trap.

INSECTICIDAL ACTIVITIES OF TWO MELIACEOUS PLANTS AGAINST Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera: Dermestidae)

Experiments showed variable insecticidal activities by the tested extracts, suggesting the presence of potent repellent and/or antifeedant active constituents in this extract, and additional studies are required to ascertain the actual bioactivities in mahogany leaves, to proceed forwards in formulating botanical insecticides from the neem oil.
