The Effect of Temperature and Humidity on the Susceptibility of Flour Beetles to Organophosphorus Insecticides
Keywords: Insect, Diazinon, Tribolium Castaneum Herbst
AbstractThe effect of the temperature and humidity on the susceptibility of Tribolium castaneum Herbst. to malathion and diazinon, has been investigated. It has been found that temperature significantly influences the susceptibility of T. castaneum to malathion though not to diazinon. Humidity, however, influences the susceptibility if the insect to both insecticides.
