Minimizing post-harvest losses against coleoptera species: A review
Author(s): Monika and Kamin Alexander
Abstract: This review focuses on the principal coleopteran beetles that cause post-harvest losses and the use of only botanical pesticides to control them. Food loss prevention during postharvest storage is critical for economic reasons. Integrated pest management, which includes the use of chemical (contact/residual) insecticides and fumigants, is now a generally recognised pest control technique, including postharvest infestation treatment. Because of the residue problem and health concerns to consumers, the use of synthetic chemical pesticides is either prohibited or restricted. Given the foregoing, there is a demand for plants that can serve as viable replacements to presently employed insecticides since they contain a large number of bioactive chemicals. According to the literature, the plant might be used to develop novel pesticides. As a result, insecticidal chemicals originating from plants have a lot of promise. The current state of botanical insecticides as grain protectants, as well as their method of action, are the subjects of this research.
