  • This study was designed to investigate population dynamics of cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne F.(Coleoptera, Anobiidae), at differential house types in Korea. In hot season, July 24 to August 24, cigarette beetle adults were captured by sex-pheromon-trap at all house types which were located in Wonjoo, Shintanjin and Suwon area. Cigarette beetle adults were captured only at apartments where located at same area by sex-pheromon-trap during overwintering period in Korea. No relation was detected between a limit of the distribution of cigarette beetle, L. serricorne F. and the distance from tobacco storage warehouses to houses in Korea.

  • This study was conducted to determine the effects of processed tobacco leaves on the development, adult emergence and body weight of the cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne Fabricius) (Coleoptera: Anobiidae) is serious insect pest of tobacco leaves and cigarette during storage. Developmental time, adult emergence rate and adult weight of the cigarette beetle, were evaluated on the cured tobacco and burley tobacco leaves at $30{\pm}1^{\circ}C$ with $70{\pm}5$ % RH under 12L:12D. The developmental time on all of the flue-cured tobacco leaves was about 61 days, but in the only CD3W and CD4TR grade burley tobacco, the developmental times ranged from 70 days to 74 days. Among the flue-cured tobacco leaves, the highest beetle emergence rate was 123 % on the CD3L grade, and the lowest was on the AB4OR grade. Adult body weights of the cigarette beetle reared on flue-cured tobacco were about 2.11~2.46 mg, and on the only CD3W and CD4TR grade burley tobacco were about 1.86~1.96 mg. Among the flue-cured tobacco leaves, the highest adult body weight(2.46 mg) of cigarette beetle was observed on the B1O grade flue-cured tobacco, whereas the lowest adult weight(2.11 mg) was observed on the CD4L grade flue-cured tobacco. The adult weight of cigarette beetle reared on whole meal was 2.04mg.

  • Survival, growth and reproduction of the cigarette beetle, Lasiodema sewicome F., were studied on flue-cured (NC82), air-cured (Br.21), aromatic (Izmir) tobacco and artificial diet (wheat feed 95% + yeast 5%). Cigarette beetle adults occurred from first generation in the flue-cured and aromatic tobacco, but no adults emerged in air-cured tobacco after the 2nd generations. The head capsule widths of larvae of the cigarette beetles L sewicome F.1 reared on different diets at 2$0^{\circ}C$, $25^{\circ}C$ and 3$0^{\circ}C$ were measured. The head capsule development was slower at 2$0^{\circ}C$ on the same diets than $25^{\circ}C$ and 3$0^{\circ}C$, and slower in the flue-cured and aromatic tobacco than the artificial diet at 2$0^{\circ}C$ and 2S$^{\circ}C$, At $25^{\circ}C$ the larval head capsule developed more rapidly in the aromatic tobacco than the flue-cured tobacco. However, no larval head development was noticed in the air-cured tobacco. The correlation between population densities of cigarette beetle,1 sewicome F., and sugar content of tobacco leaves was positive, but negative in nicotine contents. The regression between densities and sugar content was Y : 22.79 X + 57.29 (r=0.891**), and between nicotine content was Y : -141.31X + 321.40(r=-0.917**).

  • Feeding preference of cigarette beetle, Lasioderma sewicorne F., on cured tobacco leaves was investigated to obtain basic information on ecological management of the insect pest in tobacco storage warehouses. About 3, 000-4, 000 adults of the insect were released in a warehouse in which groud tobacco leaves were placed on the bottom and at 3m above the floor level, and numbers of insects attracted were examined. There was no significant difference on feeding preference between the two tobacco varieties, flue-cured(NC82) and air-cured(Br3l) tobacco leaves. However, significant differences were noted in feeding preference between thick and thin leaves and among different quality grades within a tobacco variety. Feeding preferences of cigarette beetle between flue- and air- cured tobacco varieties showed significant differences on the lower position, though there were no differences on the 3m upper position. On the 3m upper position, feeding preferences were different between thick and thin leaves of tobacco varieties, and variety X thickness and variety X thickness equality grades showed statistically significant differences. Significantly higher feeding preference by cigarette beetle adults was observed for the food placed on the 3m upper than on the lower position. There were negative correlations between quality grades of cured tobacco leaves and feeding preference on the lower position, and the regression equation was Y(feeding preference)=4.050-0.683 X (degree).

  • The ovipositional responses of two strains of the cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne F., to thickness, of air- and flue-cured leaf tobacco were investigated. Eggs laid by the strains reared with wheatflour (95%) + yeast (5%) in the laboratory for several years were not different between air - and flue-cured tobacco leaves. There were negative correlations between grades of cured tobacco and ovipositional response, and the regression equation was Y(ovipositional response) : 58.22 - 10.15X(leaf grade). Adults of strains reared on tobacco leaves laid 161.00±80.29 eggs on the first grade of thick flue-cured leaves, and 7.67 ± 5.51 on the second grade of thin air-cured leaves. There was difference in ovipositional responses among different grades within variety, but significant differences were noted between thick and thin tobacco leaves. Key words : ovipositional response, cigarette beetle, Lasiodema sewicome F., tobacco.

  • Meiotic metaphase chromosomes of the testis of two storage insects, tobacco moth (Ephestia elutella H.) and cigarette beetle (Lasioderma serricorne F.) were examined to study their karyotypes. The number of haploid chromosomes of the tobacco moth was 31 and the karyotype was characterized by 29 metacentric and 2 submetacentric chromosomes. The metaphase chromosome length of tobacco moth ranged ca. 1.44-2.11${\mu}{\textrm}{m}$ and the average length was 1, 78${\mu}{\textrm}{m}$. The number of haploid chromosomes of the cigarette beetle at metaphase was 10 and the karyotype was characterized by 8 metacentric and 2 submetacentric chromosomes. The range of metaphase chromosome length of the cigarette beetle was ca. 1.79- 2.39${\mu}{\textrm}{m}$ and the average length 2.09${\mu}{\textrm}{m}$.

  • A method to control the cigarette beetle. Losioderma serricorne F, m cigarettes by using gamma ray irradiation was evaluated When all stages of cigarette beetle were placed in gelatin capsules and irradiated wlth gamma ray. no eggs survived, but mortalities of pupae, larvae and adults exposed to above 0.8 kGy of gamma ray were only from 0 to 30%. Similar results were also obtained in the control efficacy of the beetle when seuqal kinds ot currently produced ngarettes containing m gelatin capsules were inadhated with gamma ray The cigarette beetle adults and larvae surviving gamma ray inadiatlon were reared on artificial d~etsto show that there were no reproduc. tions was observed in the second generation. The survival periods for each growth stage became shoter with increase gamma ray dosage. The fouirh instar larvae had the longest sulvlvai periods No sign~ficant changes of cigarette flavor and taste were noticed alter gamma ray inadiation. The cigarette packet, metal fotl for packet and cigarette paper by the inad~atlon were not discolored by irradiation.

  • Cigarette beetle(Lacioderma serricornine F.) is a serious pest of cured tobacco leaves. Of its pheromonal components, serricornin shows the strongest sexual stimulation. Other substances contribute as the supplementary factors cooperating with this component in the copulation of cigarette beetle. From spectroscopic evidence and synthetic studies, the structure of natural serricornin has been determined to be (4S,4S,7S)-4, 6-dimethyl-7-hydroxynonan-3-one. It has been suggested that the pheromonal components isolated from this beetle may be derived from polyketide biosynthesis. Two nonasymmetric syntheses of serricornin will be reviewed in detail.

  • Cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne F.(Coleoptera : Anobiidae), is one of the most serious insect pest of stored leaf tobacco in Korea. The first adults of their ecto-parasitic hymenoptera, Lariophagus ditinguendus F. (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), were emerged in late June in 1992, in early May in 1993 and 1995, in late May in 1994 and 1996. This parasitic hymenoptera had two peak times of adults emergence. The first one was from late June to early July and the 2nd peak time in the Suwon area occurred from late August to early September in 1993, 1994 and 1996, and late September in 1992 and 1995.
