K Ravi Kumar, C Narendra Reddy, K Vijaya Lakshmi, K Rameash, K Keshavulu and B Rajeswari

An experiment was conducted to study the management of cigarette beetle by exposing to different doses of gamma radiation of 200 Gy, 400 Gy, 600 Gy, 800 Gy, 1000 Gy and 1200 Gy along with untreated check treatments showed that increase in the dose of gamma radiation resulted in the increase of mortality percentage and decrease in the fecundity and adult emergence. Among all the treatments, the dose of 1200 Gy showed superior performance over other treatments and was adjudged as the best treatment which resulted in complete mortality in short time (8 days) and prevented the subsequent development of the pest.
