Abstract:Adults of the rice weevil, SiIophilus oryzae (L.), placed 0, 40, 80,120, and 140 cm from the bottom of an open steel bin, were fumigated with hydrogen phosphide at dosages of 1.16, 1.74, 2.33, and 4.66 mg per liter. Aluminurn phosphide pellets were applied at the bottom of the bin with moist cotton for 8, 12, 16, and 24 hr. All dosages killed all the insects at all levels when they were exposed for 24 hr. When adults and eggs of the Angoumois grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier), placed at 0-, 40-, 80-, and 120-cm levels in a column of paddy, were fumigated in air-tight steel bins, all adults were killed in 8 hr and all eggs in 24 hr. Eggs of this insect required a higher dose or longer exposure period than adults to obtain 100% mortality.
