Part 10 (Chapter 11) Introduction to Urban and Industrial Integrated Pest Management

  1. An external feeder found in most any stored food product and feeding in or near a tunnel-like case with frass incorporated into it is the [a].
    Indian meal moth
  2. The [a] is identified by the six saw-like projections on each side of its thorax. This insect does not fly.
    sawtoothed grain beetle
  3. Damage done to grain by rice or granary weevils can be detected by a staining technique which makes the [a] visible.
    • egg plugs
    • feeding punctures
    • mechanical punctures
    • gelatinous egg plugs
  4. The adult [a] has distinct longitudinal lines on the wing covers. These beetles are good fliers.

    • type
    • design
    • visual acuity
    • nature
  10. Adult females of the [a] and the [b] bore a small hole into a grain kernel, deposit an egg, and seal the hole with a gelatinous fluid. The egg, larval, and [c] stages of these insects are spent inside the kernel.
