The cigarette beetle is distributed throughout the world and is known as a serious pest of tobacco and cocoa, particularly in tropical and sub-tropical areas (Howe, 1957). It is well known, however, that all grades of tobacco are not equally susceptible to attack, the high-grade, flue-cured tobaccos usually being most heavily attacked (Kurup, 1961; Runner, 1922; Yamamoto & Fraenkel, 1960).
