Abstract:Tests conducted in preference chambers containing clean wheat and wheat with various percentages of dockage showed that T. castaneum (Herbst) exhibited preference for grain with high dockage content. The number of insects present in each of the samples was directly proportional to the percentage of dockage in the grain.
