Adults (2-4 days old) of a laboratory-reared strain, Ebony Pearl, Anthonomus grandis Boheman were readily controlled with methyl bromide (MeBr) or aluminum phosphide. At temperatures below 10, much higher concentration-time products (CT) of MeBr were apparently required for control than expected if the relationship between CT and temperature were a straight line. There was some indication that adults 9-11 days old were more tolerant to aluminum phosphide than 2- to 4-day-old adults. Fumigation schedules are recommended for quarantine control.
