    Controlling insect pests in stored grain Diatomaceous earths are effective, non-toxic alternatives to the synthetic chemical insecticides currently used to fight insect pests in stored grain. 7 Above: Mixing diatomaceous earths with grain before it is stored can greatly reduce the amounts destroyed by insect pests. Photo: T. Stathers. A storage pest is an insect or other animal that damages or destroys stored food or other stored valuable organic matter. Insects are a large proportion of storage pests with each type of crop having specific insects that gravitate towards them such as the genus Tribolium that consists of insects such as Tribolium castaneum (red flour beetle) or Tribolium confusum (confused flour . Grain protectants (or storage insecticides) and fumigants are used extensively in the grain industry. A grain protectant is an insecticide that can be applied on stored grain. Fumigation is a method of using a lethal gas to exterminate pests, through suffocation or poisoning, within an enclosed Size: 2MB.

It has been estimated that between one quarter and one third of the world grain crop is lost each year during storage. Much of this is due to insect attack.

In addition, grain which is not lost is severely reduced in quality by insect damage. Many grain pests preferentially eat out grain embryos, thereby reducing the protein content of feed grain and lowering the percentage of.

Several insect species attack stored grain, resulting in both direct and indirect losses. Direct losses from insect feeding result in reduced grain weight, loss of nutrients and decreased germination.

Indirectly, the presence of insects causes a deterioration and contamination of grain. ˜ is results in a poorer grade of grain and lower. Stored grains and milled cereal products are subject to attack by insects that cause enormous losses annually. Of the many insects that have adapted themselves to a diet of dried vegetable material, a few are primary pests of grain in that they are able to bore into the sound : Richard Thomas Cotton.

Published: October 3, Insect problems in stored grain are best prevented through sound grain management at the on-farm level. Implementation of sanitation practices which reduce residual pest insect numbers in empty bins and grain handling equipment coupled with pre-harvest insecticide applications to empty bin surfaces and surrounding areas is the first step in.

Carry-over grain can be a major source of AGM and other stored grain insect pests.

It should be removed and discarded (sold, fed, buried, or spread on open ground in winter) to prevent the emerging adult moths from flying back to re-infest the newly stored grain. If leftover grain must be retained, it should be properly fumigated. Identifying insect pests in stored grain In a deregulated grain market, the popularity of on-farm storage continues to increase and markets are now more likely to request nil chemical residues.

This reduces the tools available to control pests, so good storage hygiene, well-managed aeration and regular monitoring (at least monthly) are essential. A food grain storage system is an artificial ecological system in which deterioration of the stored product results from interactions among physical (e.g.

temperature, moisture, storage structure), chemical (e.g. carbon dioxide, oxygen) and biological (e.g. grain characteristics, microorganisms, insects, mites, rodents, birds) factors (Jayas and White, ). Protecting any grain stored from insect attack makes economic sense, because even feed grain can lose value though loss of protein or palatability, affecting livestock growth rates.

Seed grain is next year’s investment and if boring insects are present they will destroy the germ of the grain. Discusses the causes of insect infestation in grain crops and acquaints the farmer or grain dealer with the characteristics of several fumigants so that he can choose the best one for particular conditions.

With more grain being stored on-farm growers need to identify pests early and monitor – at the very least – monthly. Regular inspection by sieving grain. Insect detection techniques Grain probes and insect traps Insect populations in stored grain are often monitored using traps.
