    Other articles where Khapra beetle is discussed: dermestid beetle: The khapra beetle (Trogoderma granarium), a small beetle native to the Indian subcontinent, is a serious pest in most parts of the world. It is unique among dermestids because the larvae feed on stored grain. Trogoderma granarium Everts (Khapra Beetle) is one of world’s most destructive pests of grain products and seeds. This pest may also show up in a variety of locations that are not obvious food sources such as burlap bags, corrugated boxes (where they feed on the glue) and animal hides.

Quality Grading; Auditing & Accreditation. The Khapra Beetle (Trogoderma granarium) is one of the world’s most destructive pests of stored grain products and seeds.

Its feeding damage often spoils 30 percent of the product; up to 70 percent damage has been reported. Previous U.S. detections of this tiny beetle have required massive, long-term and costly control and eradication efforts. The khapra beetle is one of the most destructive pests of whole grain and cereal products in warmer areas of the world, particularly North Africa and the Indian subcontinent.

Many ships harbour endemic populations, larvae remaining concealed behind paint or rust scale, and because of its notoriety the species is on the quarantine pest list of many nations.
