This study investigated during summer 2015 the comparative population growth and weight loss by Tribolium castaneum Herbst (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) in different wheat byproducts and varieties. Maximum weight loss by T. castenum (1.96±0.008) was in Semolina and minimum (1.00±0.13) in wheat bran. Maximum larvae were in wheat flour (457.25±3.74) and minimum in Semolina (38.75±0.93). Numbers of adults were maximum in wheat bran (41.0±0.41) and minimum in Semolina (33.0±0.41). In wheat varieties minimum weight loss by T. castaneum was in Meraj (0.22±0.028) and maximum in Sehar (3.15±0.20). Maximum larvae were in Sehar (26.50±0.010) and minimum in Merja (21.25±0.09). For T. granarium these parameters were studied only in wheat varieties. Weight loss was more in Fareed (5.87±0.263) and minimum in Meraj (3.22±0.09). Maximum larvae were in Fareed (26.75±0.27) and minimum in Meraj (21.00±0.25). These results are important for the management of these serious storage insect pests.
