  • The rate of development and the egg-production of the Dermestid beetle, Trogoderma parabile Beal, at 30°C. and 60 to 70 per cent. R.H. and the effect upon larval development of the volume of food, the temperature and the relative humidity have been determined. In 15 to 450 cc. of wheatfeed at 30°C. and 60 to 70 per cent. E.H., active adults are formed from eggs in a mean of 39 days (egg 6, larva 26, pupa 5 and pre-emergence 2). Males develop slightly more rapidly than females. On average, a… CONTINUE READING
