Abstract:

During an 18-month survey on stored barley and maize intended for animal feed conducted in store-rooms on the island of Lefkas, Greece, 21 different taxa of stored product Coleoptera belonging to 12 families were represented in a total of 6027 individuals. The most abundant species were Sitophilus oryzae (L.) and S. granarius (L.). The abundance of each taxon in both products is presented, while their presence in different parts of the stores is commented upon. Finally, the population fluctuations of the 5 most numerically significant taxa are described.
