Abstract

When sub-lethal doses of the fumigant methyl iodide, i.e. 0.25 and 0.5 mg/l., were used together with 10% CO2 there was about 14 and 80% increase, resp., in mortality of the adult rice weevil Sitophilus oryzae. For adult red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum, addition of 10% CO2 to 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mg methyl iodide/l. produced 10, 34 and 99% mortality, resp.
