Studies were conducted with 5 promising wheat products developed by the Western Utilization Research and Development Division, USDA, to evaluate attractiveness or resistance to Sitophilus oryzae (L.). The weevils were attracted consistently to pearled wheats of both light and heavy abrasion and were able to develop heavy populations therein. Parboiled WURLD wheats neutralized with either acetic or benzoic acid were not attractive to rice weevils. However, small numbers of progeny were produced in both materials. Progeny emergence was several days later in these than in the pearled wheats. More progeny was produced in scarified WURLD wheat than in the acid-neutralized products, but the number of progeny was still much lower than in the pearled wheats. Rice weevils were attracted to the Gaines wheat control about the same as to the pearled wheats, and progeny production was about the same in these materials. The bulgur and flour controls were the least attractive of all test materials to the rice weevil. However, the progeny production from the bulgur was similar to that from the acetic-add-neutralized WURLD wheat.
