Abstract

Laboratory experiments were carried out to investigate the efficacy of sugarcane bagasse-based lignin against four stored grain insect pests viz., Tribolium castaneum, Tribolium confusum, Sitophilus oryzae and Callosobruchus maculatus. Mortality was assessed after 24, 48 and 72 h of treatment and LD50 values were calculated at the respective time intervals. It was observed that T. castaneum is more susceptible to the lignin than the other test insects. Repellent activity of the product was conducted for T. castaneum and T. confusum. All the concentrations of the product were found to be repellent to both the insect species. Strong repellent activity was observed at concentrations of 471.57 and 628.76 µg.cm-2 to T. confusum showing the repellency of class V activity.
