Gotyal, B S and Srivastava, Chitra and Walia, Suresh and Jain, S K and Reddy, D S (2010) Efficacy of wild sage (Lantana camara) extracts against almond moth (Cadra cautella) in stored wheat (Triticum aestivum) seeds. Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences, 80 (5). pp. 433-436.
The almond moth [Cadra cautella (Walker) (Lepidoptera: ‘ Phycitidae)] is one of the most economically important stored product pests. If not managed properly, this insect causes serious damage directly from larval feeding on a variety of dried fruits and stored vegetables and wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend. Fiori & Paol.) seeds. Jha (2003) observed 9.8-64.8% damage in different wheat cultivars due to release of C. cautella larvae after 70 days of its release. Control of C. cautella population world-wide is primarily dependent on repeated application of contact insecticide as space and structural treatment or as protectants.
