“…The maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea ), is a world‐wide grain storage pest (Boyer, Zhang, & Lemperiere, ). It attacks standing crops and stored cereal products, including maize, wheat, rice, sorghum, oats, barley (Ghaninia, Ignell, & Hansson, ), which may cause severe loss in the field and storage conditions (Rojas, ; Sousa, Faroni, Pimentel, Silva, & Guedes, ; Tefera, ). Our bioassays indicate that the maize weevil mainly uses olfaction to find food and mates.…”

“…In 2014, total world production was 1.04 billion tonnes; the USA has led production with 35% of the total, while China produced 21% of the global total. The maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea), is one of the most damaging early pests of stored grain; feeding by S. zeamais on stored maize causes huge economic loss due to quantity and quality reduction of stored grains (many fragments and much dust, easily reducing the quantity and quality of the grain) (Sousa et al 2016;Faruki et al 2005). In China, S. zeamais are the most prevalent pests of stored grain as well as the world's most common grain storage pests (Boyer et al 2012).…”

“…The quality of ozone as a latent fumigant for insect disinfestation in stored grain was studied two decades ago . Researchers evaluated the effect of ozone on locomotion and the rate and pattern of respiration of Sitophilus zeamais, and found that an ozone concentration of 50 ppm at a continuous flow rate of 2 L min −1 caused 1.00‐ and 1.09‐fold mortality at half‐response time. Mahroof et al determined the mortality of Oryzaephilus Mercator, with or without access to food, and revealed that, unless insects are located on the surface of the treated food material, it was difficult for ozone to react with the insects in a short span of exposure time.…”
