Insects Infestation and Preventive Measures in Dry Fish Storage of Chittagong, Bangladesh
Mohammed Ashraful Azam Khan and Yusuf Sharif Ahmed Khan

Abstract:
Six experiments were conducted to assess losses, magnitude of infestation and to develop preventive measures for 12 weeks to combat the beetles infestation on sun dried ribbon fish by treating with pirimiphos-methyl at a concentration dose of 0.12, 0.06 and 0.03%, saturated brine solution and dried ‘Bishkatali’ (Polygonum hydropiper) plants. For comparative studies a batch of ribbon fish was also stored without any treatment as a control. The treatment of 0.12 and 0.06% pirimiphos-methyl showed excellent result against beetles infestation during storage, while the control suffers from effective weight loss of about -25.47% instead of increase due to rise of moisture content. The 0.12 and 0.06% pirimiphos-methyl treated fish showed weight change of +2.94 and -0.96% respectively, which were economic to the traders.

Dr. Nurunnabi:
Dear sir, good evening. Do you have any idea where I can get the Insecticide - Pirimphos-methyl ? We need the product for UN Mission to kill the harmful insect in Africa. If you have any address, pl let me know. Matter is urgent. Thanks Dr. Nurunnabi
