EPHESTIA CAUTELLA PDF
Acronym: CCA. Sometimes referred to as warehouse moth or tropical warehouse moth; scientific references may use Ephestia cautella. The reduction in mating of Ephestia cautella caused by permeation of the atmosphere with synthetic sex pheromone components was investigated in the. Adults of Ephestia cautella (Wlk.) were exposed to pressures of , , , and mm Hg at 26 ± 1 °C and 70 ± 5% r.h., in a specially designed.

cauteola Infestations have been reported in cereals and chocolate manufacturing facilities. The tropical warehouse moth infests dried fruit and nuts, cereals, oil seeds, cakes and chocolate products.
The Tropical warehouse moth, Ephestia cautella feeds on a variety of stored products cautekla include rice, wheat, maize, beans, cake, flour, bran, oat meal and maize, dry fruits such as fig, almond, raisins, dates, pears, ground nuts, walnuts and confectionary items such as biscuits and chocolates.
The act of feeding can be extremely damaging to the food produce and there is often further contamination of food stuffs with faecal matter. The Tropical warehouse moth is often confused with the Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella.
Forewings are grey-brown and banded with lighter and darker colours. Adult females lay around eggs during the first week, usually starting days after adult emergence.
The larvae are an off-white colour with purple spots. Larval growth and rate of development depends on temperature.
The tropical warehouse moth overwinters as larvae in low temperatures. When pupation draws ephstia, they generally migrate away from the foodstuff, and climb walls in search of crevices to pupate safely away from the food source. Pupal period is completed within days if food sources are readily available.

The larvae of tropical warehouse moths commonly attack grains, nuts, dried fruits and a great variety of other ephesria products. Larvae are able to chew through ephestiaa wrapping to infest protected products. Silk webbing produced by the caterpillars can block and subsequently damage the machinery of flourmills and food processing plants. Russell IPM Ltd manufactures and supplies pheromone lures, traps and complete monitoring systems for the black carpet beetle Ephestia cautellathe tropical warehouse moth or almond moth.
The purpose of the study was to verify the efficacy of a mating-disruption system MD applied in a confectionary factory infested by almond moths, Ephestia cautella Walkerusing pheromone traps and the presence of spermatophores in females caught with water traps.
Results obtained confirmed that water is a considerable attractant for E. The presence of spermatophores in females allowed determination of mating status: In an integrated pest management programme, the combined use of MD and water traps eliminates large numbers of male and female almond moths.

This information will be useful in developing strategies for suppressing E. Exposure of pupae to minutes or more is effective to get a complete mortality for the pupal stage. High temperatures were tested against egg, late larval instars and pupal stages of E. Mortality tended to be increased with the increasing of temperature and exposure time.
