Adult Cryplolestes turcicus (Grouvelle) of the Winnipeg strain were more tolerant to methyl bromide than adults of the rusty grain beetle, C. ferrugineus (Stephens), which in turn were less susceptible than C. turcicus of the Slough strain. Eggs of C. turcicus, Winnipeg strain, and of C. ferrugineus showed similar response to methyl bromide. Tolerance to this fumigant varied according to age for eggs and adults of the species and strains tested.
