Ibrar-ul-Hassan Akhtar and Muhammad Aslam

Abstract:
Research was conducted to determine the preference and non-preference behaviour of red flour beetle against wheat, rice, paddy and sunflower crushed grains under laboratory conditions in university of Arid Agriculture Rawalpindi, Pakistan during 2000. In the antixenosis experiment, the red flour beetles were observed at 24 h interval. Red flour beetle had shown highest preference to rice crushed grains with mean 9.2500±1.8875, medium preference to paddy crushed grains with mean value 5.2500±2.7500 and least preference to wheat and sunflower with mean value 1.5000±0.5000 and 1.5000±0.8660 respectively.
