Abstract

The response of some major insect pests of stored grains to various radiation dosages from a Co{sup 60} source made available through the courtesy of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission has been studied. A dosage of 20 000 r produced 100% mortality of the adults of Rhizopertha dominica and Tribolium castaneum within a period of 11 d. A lower dose (10 000 r) was, however, effective in 23 d. The adults of Sitophilus granarius evinced comparatively high susceptibility and when they were exposed to 10 000 r, total mortality was attained in 7d. The larvae of Trogoderma granarium, however, proved to be the most resistant; they were not responsive to the lower dosages, and 100% control was attained only with 25 000 r in 26 d. The maximum dosage of 250 000 r gave an instant kill in all these cases, but apart from being too high it also adversely affected the viability of the grains. Since, however, their nutritive value remained unaffected, this treatment might be of use where immediate disinfestation of non-seeding edible grains was desired. Eggs of Bruchus quadmmaculatus failed to hatch when exposed to 2500 r. Studies on other stages and dosages are in progress. (author)  More>>

(author) [French] On a etudie la reponse a differentes doses de rayonnements de quelques especes d'insectes particulierement nuisibles aux cereales engrangees; on a utilise a cet effet une source au {sup 60}Co fournie par la Commission pakistanaise de l'energie atomique. Une dose de 20 000 r a provoque en l'espace de 11 j une mortalite de 100% chez les adultes de la Rhizopertha dominica et du Tribolium castaneum. Une dose de 10 000 r a donne le meme resultat en 23 j. Les adultes du Sitophilus granarius ont montre une sensibilite beaucoup plus elevee: une dose de 10 000 r a entraine une mortalite de 100% en 7 j. Ce sont les larves de la Trogoderma granarium qui se sont revelees les plus resistantes; elles ont ete insensibles aux doses de faible intensite et la mortalite de 100% n'a ete obtenue qu'avec 25 000 r, en 26 j. Une dose maximum de 250 000 g a entraine une mort instantanee dans tous les cas; mais, outre le fait qu'elle est trop elevee, cette dose nuit a la conservation des cereales. Toutefois, la valeur nutritive des cereales ne s'en trouvant pas affectee, on pourrait appliquer des doses de cette intensite lorsqu'on veut rapidement desinsectiser des grains comestibles qui ne sont pas destines a la semence. Des oeufs de Bruchus quadrumaculatus exposes a une dose de 2500 r ne sont pas parvenus a eclosion. On poursuit les etudes sur des insectes a d'autres stades de leur developpement et pour des doses differentes. (author) [Spanish] El autor ha estudiado loe. efectos que en algunas de las principales plagas insectiles de los silos ejercen diversas dosis de irradiacion aplicadas con una fuente de {sup 60}Co que puso a su disposicion la Comision de Energia Atomica del Pakistan. Una dosis de 20 000 r causo ai cabo de 11 d una mortalidad del 100% entre los Rhizopertha dominica y Tribolium castaneum adultos. Una dosis de 10 000 r produjo los mismoe resultados al cabo de 23 d. El Sitophilus granarius adulto acuso una sensibilidad relativamente mucho mas elevada, pues con una dosis de 10 000 g se obtuvo una mortalidad del. 100% en solo 7 d. Las larvas de Trogoderma granarium demostraron ser las mas resistentes; con dosis inferiores no acusaron efecto alguno y su exterminio total exigio 25000 r y 26 d. Una dosis maxima de 250 000 r produjo inmediatamente efectos letales en todos los insectos, pero aparte de ser demasiado elevada resulto perjudicial para la vitalidad de los granos. Ahora bien, como no altera su poder nutritivo, se puede emplear cuando se quiera lograr la desinsectacion inmediata de granes comestibles que no sean para la siembra. Los huevecillos de Bruchus quadrumaculatus dejan de desarrollarse cuando sufren una irradiacion de 2500 r. El autor esta estudiando los efectos de otras dosis en otras fases de la metamorfosis. (author) [Russian] Byli izucheny otvetnye reaktsii nekotorykh osnovnykh ambarnykh nasekomykh-vreditelej na obluchenie razlichnymi dozami ot istochnika s Co{sup 60}, lyubezno predostavlennogo Pakistanskoj komissiej po atomnoj ehnergii. Doza'20 000 r vyzyvala 100-protsentnuyu smertnost' vzroslykh osobej Rhizopertha dominica i Tribolium castaneum v techenie 11 sutok. Doza 10 000 r okazalas' ehffektivnoj tol'ko cherez 23 sutok. Vzroslye osobi Sitophilus granarius proyavlyali otnositel'no bol'shuyu chuvstvitel'nost', i pri obluchenii ikh 10 000 r polnaya smertnost' nastupala cherez 7 sutok. Odnako lichinki Trogoderma granarium okazalis' naibolee stojkimi; na bolee nizkie dozy oni vovse ne reagirovali, a 100-protsentnaya smertnost' byla dostignuta tol'ko cherez 26 sutok posle oblucheniya 25 000 r. Maksimal'naya doza 250 000 r privodila k mgnovennoj smerti vo vsekh sluchayakh, no ehta doza slishkom vysoka, i privodit k narusheniyu prorastaemosti semyan. Odnako vvidu togo, chto pitatel'nye svojstva ne stradayut/ ehta doza mokhet byt' ispol'zovana tam, gde zhelatel'no nemedlennoe istreblenie nasekomykh v neprednaznachennykh dlya poseva prodovol'stvennykh zernovykh. Bruchus quadrumaculatus ne vyplansivaetsya pri obluchenii dozoj v 2500 r. V nastoyashchee vremya prodolzhaetsya izuchenie drugikh stadij i dozirovok. (author)}
