When busulfan (1,4- butanediol dimethanesulfonate) was fed to adult Anthonomus grandis Boheman for 6 days as 0.1% of the diet, it induced greater than 99% sterility in all males and permanent sterility in 97% of the males, and it drastically reduced the fecundity of females. The cumulative mortality at 3 weeks post treatment was moderate. In at least 4 consecutive matings, each treated male displaced normal sperm in a previously mated female. The production of pheromone by treated males was normal.
