Abstract

Embelin, an extract of the powdered berries of Embelia ribes (a shrub native to India) was mixed with wheat grain at concentrations of 0.1875-0.75%. It caused mortality to adults of Tribolium castaneum even after treatment at the lowest concentration and storage for 8 months. It also reduced the number of progeny produced per adult beetle per day. After 8 months' storage, significant reduction of the F1 progeny after treatment at the lowest concentration was mainly due to the action of embelin against the larvae. No chemosterilant action or contact toxicity against adults was found. Germination of the wheat was not significantly impaired even after treatment at the highest concentration.
