Bostrichidae

 

(or false power post borers), a family of beetles, outwardly similar in appearance to bark beetles. There are as many as 800 species, primarily found in the tropics; about 30 species are known in the USSR. The larvae develop in wood fiber, or less commonly, in plant seeds. Some species are pests that destroy timber and wooden articles—for example, the oak beetle (Bostrychus capucinus), which develops in oak wood. The grain beetle (Rhizopertha dominica) is a dangerous pest of such grains as rice and wheat in tropical and subtropical regions and in Middle Asia in the USSR.
