Abstract:Bacterial contamination and irradiation cause rapid deterioration of midgut epithelium of Anthonomus grandis grandis Boheman. Staphylococcus aureus Rosenbach and Streptococcus sp. greatly accelerate the effects of irradiation, resulting in destruction of the tissues within a few days. The bacterial damage to the midgut causes premature mortality of the boll weevils.
