Abstract
The losses caused by insects to stored foodstuffs throughout the world are enormous. In J946 the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations estimated that at least ten per cent of the world's food supply was being destroyed by insects. In the U.S.A. it was estimated that in 1933 the losses caused by insect attack upon grain and grain products amounted to 300 million dollars. In the same year' in Germany the grain weevil, Calandra granaria, damaged grain to the extent of 10 million R.M. These losses are due to direct "attack on the grain and take no account of damage to good-will and other business losses.
