Adult Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) and Sitophilus granaries (L.) were introduced into the tops of six towers (1.7–2.6 m high) filled with wheat. Samples removed two, three, and four months later revealed that <1.0% of R. dominica and S. granarius were found below 127 cm and 63 cm, respectively. Low population densities of S. granarius precluded detennination of distribution patterns, but the damage caused by S. granarius apparently affected the distribution patterns of R. dominica. The distribution patterns of adult and immature R. dominica differed.
