Virendra, AS Thakur, M Thomas, Shailendra Kumar and Narayan Lal
Pseudohypatopa (Holcocera) pulverea Meyr (Lepidoptera; Blastobasidae) and Eublemma amabilis Moore (Lepidoptera; Noctuidae) were the only two insect pests found in stored lac samples collected from nine different categories of lac traders and storage structures from Barghat block, Seoni district during 2015-2016.The mean larval population of P. pulverea and E. amabilis per 50 g stored lac samples was found highest 2.30 and 2.37 in month of November 2015, respectively. The larval population of P. pulvereaand E. amabilis are absent in month of September 2015, January and February 2016. Mean monthly population (Larvae + Pupae) of P. pulverea and E. amabilis were recorded in August 2015 to February 2016 from the (50) g stored lac samples. P. pulverea was absent in samples of stored lac collected during the month of September 2015, January and February 2016 in all storage structures. The mean (larval + pupal) population of P. pulverea was highest (7.67) in month of November 2015 followed by December 2015 (7.33), October 2015 (7.33) and August 2015 (6.00) in Pucca storage structures. E. amabilis was not found in the stored lac collected during the month of September 2015, January and February 2016. However the mean (larval + pupal) population of E. amabilis was highest (7.31) in the month of December 2015 followed by November 2015 (7.00), August 2015 (7.00) and October 2015 (6.67) in Pucca storage structures.
