Abstract:A schedule for effective control of the cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne (F.), in tobacco warehouses has been developed. One HCN fumigation per year at 48 oz per 1000 ft3 followed by dichlorvos as an aerosol released daily at 0.5 g or twice weekly at 2 g per 1000 ft3 during the active insect season is effective for 2 years or longer.
