Results are given of the susceptibility of the egg, larval, pupal, and adult stages of the rice weevil, Sitophilus oryza (L.), in infested wheat fumigated with acrylonitrile, carbon bisulfide, chloropicrin, ethylene dibromide, ethylene dichloride, and methyl bromide. If the egg stage is omitted, the order of decreasing susceptibility to all fumigants except ethylene dichloride is larva, adult and pupa. In comparison with the other stages, the eggs are resistant to carbon bisulfide and relatively resistant to methyl bromide.
