Infestation of stored medicinal plants and herbal tea by insects and mites
Plant Protection Science 36 (1), 21-22
Abstract: The infestation of stored medicinal plants and herbal tea with harmful pests was studied. In older, damp and mouldy material seven species of insects and one of mites were determined. Most numerous (75%) were insects of the order Psocoptera: Lepinotus inquilinus von Heyden, L. reticulatus Enderlein, Liposcelis corrodens (Heymons) and L. bostrichophilus Badonnel, while other species such as Oryzaephilus mercator (Fauvel), Ptinus clavipes Panzer and Ephestia ellutella (Hubner) were less represented (16%). Only one mite species (Acarina), Lepidoglyphus destructor (Schrank), was found.
