Abstract

Abstract The insecticides dichlorvos, malathion, chlorpyrifos-methyl, pirimiphos-methyl, deltamethrin and cypermethrin were applied to filter paper to assess their toxicity to granary weevil Sitophilus granarius adults. Based on discriminating doses obtained from tests on a susceptible laboratory population, the susceptibility of 12 populations originating from different storage facilities (11 in Serbia and 1 in Bosnia-Herzegovina) was tested. The facilities included silos, floor stockpiles and attic stockpiles. Weevils originating from Apatin, Belgrade Port, Bijeljina and Kikinda were submitted to toxicity testing, and determination of ld-p lines, LD values and levels of susceptibility/resistance. Chlorpyrifos-methyl proved the most toxic and cypermethrin the least toxic insecticides against all populations. Dichlorvos, malathion and pirimiphos-methyl had the least toxic effect on weevils originating from Belgrade Port and Kikinda, While deltamethrin was most toxic to weevils from Belgrade Port, and least toxic to weevils from Kikinda. The resistance ratios (RR) for deltamethrin at the LD 50 and LD 95 levels 48 h after exposure to treated filter paper were 11.2 and 14.5 for Bijeljina weevils, and 20.9 and 25.5 for Kikinda weevils.
