Abstract

Rice bran stabilized by treatment with conc. HCl at 4.0 and 5.5% levels was highly unfavourable for the multiplication of red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum. When adults were released into the treated brans for 15 days, the populations after 45 days were, resp., 3 and 1% of that observed with control bran. Infestation studies with egg, larval and adult stages indicated that acid treatment had a detrimental effect on larvae, particularly the younger ones. Larval survivors in treated bran failed to reach the adult stage even after 45 days.
