Extract

Among the diverse forms of insect life infesting stored agricultural products in South India those belonging to the Lepidoptera are by no means unimportant. Though no accurate estimates of the annual losses in value of grain, pulses, etc., due to their depredations are available in this country, it has to be admitted that the extent of the damage may occasionally be considerable. It is, therefore, unfortunate that these insects have not attracted sufficient attention at the hands of Economic Entomologists in this country; consequently very little information is available as to the exact identity of the species, their relative importance, or their life-histories. The present investigation was undertaken to make a detailed study of this problem in South India with a view to elucidating the points just raised.
