Bruchidius atrolineatus Pic is a Coleopteran Bruchid developing in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata Leguminosae) seeds. This insect causes important damage in tropical countries during storage of cowpea seeds. The influence of some volatile sulfur compounds is studied on adults and larvae of B. atrolineatus. Dimethyl trisulfide and diethyl trisulfide produce the highest mortality to adults, eggs and larvae. The toxicity of the sulfur compounds is higher than that of carbon tetrachloride but is less than that of Dichlorvos at a dosage of 500 g/l. It is suggested that the sulfur compounds produced by the leaves of some tropical plants (Alliaceae, Bignonlaceae, Mimosaceae) could be used for control of Bruchid populations in the stored products.
