The intensive use of synthetic pesticides in cowpea storage has led to the development of resistance by Callosobruchus maculatus and subsequent degradation of the grains quality. In an attempt to circumvent these constraints, we investigated the susceptibility of C. maculatus to 2, 3-Dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) and Lippia adoensis essential oil (EO) and then assessed the variations in the proportions of nutritional values of treated grains 150 days after storage. The survival rate was recorded...
