Xin, Ni; Ren, Y. L.; Forrester, Robert; Ming, Xue; Mahon, Daphne


Fumigations were conducted using a continuous flow-through laboratory process to maintain constant concentrations of ethyl formate and low levels (<0.8%) of respiratory carbon dioxide. The procedure minimised the effects of sorption by exposing test insects without media and minimised the effect of carbon dioxide by use of continuous flow. The concentration×time (Ct) products of ethyl formate for adult Sitophilus oryzae, Tribolium castaneum and Rhyzopertha dominica at 25 °C and 70% relative...[Show more]
