Irradiation doses of 2580 rads of Cesium-137 depressed the fecundity and reduced the fertility of adults of the saw-toothed grain bettle whereas doses of 10,320 rads affected their longevity. Larvae were more sensitive to the lethal effects of Cesium-137 irradiation than the pupae. Doses of 2580 and 3870 rads decreased the fecundity of the adults which emerged from irradiated larvae and pupae, respectively.
