Insects and mites associated with stored products in Queensland. I. Psocoptera

Champ, B.R. and Smithers, C.N. (1965) Insects and mites associated with stored products in Queensland. I. Psocoptera. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 22 (3). pp. 259-262.



This is the first part of a series in which are to be given the results of a survey during 1960-64 of the insects and mites that attack stored products in Queensland. Fifteen species of Psocoptera of the families Trogiidae, Psoquillidae, Psyllipsocidae, Liposcelidae, Pachytroctidae, Lachesillidae, Peripsocidae and Elipsocidae are recorded from stored products in Queensland. Greatest economic losses from psocid infestations in stored products are concerned with contamination of processed foods, particularly when stored for long periods under domestic conditions. Damage to bulk products by these insects is usually overshadowed by the activities of major stored products pests.
