Stored products of agriculture and animal origin are attacked by more than 600 species of beetles, 70 species of moths, and about 355 species of mites, causing huge quantitative and qualitative losses and insect contamination in food commodities. This is an important quality control problem. This book, Insect Pests of Stored Grain: Biology, Behavior, and Management Strategies, provides comprehensive coverage of stored product entomology for the sustainable management of insects and other noninsect pests, such as mites, birds, rodents, and fungi, with the aim to mitigate and eliminate these losses of food from grains. The author, who has studied sustainable and herbal management of stored grain and seed insect pests in his research, considers sustainable management of stored grain insect pests and eco-friendly approaches along with the utilization of waste materials. Starting with a history of stored product entomology from the beginning to the modern era in detail along with an introduction of storage entomology, the book then goes on to cover a range of important issues, including Significant developments in the field of storage entomology Classification and identification of important stored grain insects Major stored product coleopteran and lepidopteran insects that infest stored commodities Estimation of losses caused by stored grain insect pests Factors responsible for infestation of stored grain insects Different storage structures Alternative methods for the management of stored grain insects by utilization of behavior modification techniques or utilization of secondary metabolites of plants Fumigation of stored grains for the protection of infestation Insect Pests of Stored Grain: Biology, Behavior, and Management Strategies covers a vast amount of valuable information on stored product entomology for the sustainable management of insects and other noninsect pests.

A pocket reference that allows the non-specialist to identify major insect and arachnid pests found in stored cereal grains, grain products and grain legumes. It describes most storage pests found worldwide and provides concise information on the biology, distribution, damage and economic importance of each species. Each entry contains at least one colour photograph. The notes for each species tell the nature of the pest or beneficial and the commodity affected; temperature and humidity conditions at which the species can survive; optimum conditions at which eggs take the shortest time to develop into adults; and maximum population growth rate per month. This new edition has twice as many species in it and more detail on distribution, host range and pest status than the previous edition. Short introductory sections on insect biology, principles of control and concepts of pest status evaluation have also been added.

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 Kernels. Their Initial Attack Opens The Way For A Much Larger Group That Are Unable To Cut Their Way Through The Tough Seed Coat. It Has Been Estimated That As A Result Of Their Feeding Activities, Their Presence In Grain And Cereal Products And The Cost Of Methods Employed To Destroy Them, This Group Of Insects Exacts A Heavy Loss In The World. In Order To Intelligently Combat These Insects It Is Essential To Have A Knowledge Of Their Life Histories, Habits And Environmental Needs. In This Book A Attempt Is Made To Acquaint The Reader With These Insects And The Most Effective Methods Of Controlling Them. The Book Is Divided Into The Following Chapters: Contents Chapter 1: The Control Of Insect Pests And Stored Grain And Milled Cereal Products; Chapter 2: Controlling Stored Grain Insects On The Farm; Chapter 3: Control Of Insects In Grain Stored In Elevators And Warehouses; Chapter 4: The Insect Problems In Flour Mills; Chapter 5: Practical Control Methods In The Mill; Chapter 6: Protecting The Flour After Manufacture; Chapter 7: Fumigants And Fumigation; Chapter 8: The Common Fumigants; Chapter 9: Flour Mill And Warehouse Fumigation; Chapter 10: Fumigation In Atmospheric Vaults And Vaccum Chambers; Chapter 11: Heat Sterilization In The Flour Mill.

Insect infestations in grains and other stored food and fibre products cause annual losses worth many millions of dollars worldwide. This illustrated guide enables specialists and non-specialists to distinguish the major pests of durable stored products found throughout the world. It describes how to identify each pest group or species and summarises the latest information on their biology, ecology, geographical distribution, the damage they cause and their economic importance. Hundreds of colour photographs illustrate the identifying features of the most important beetles, moths, psocids, bugs and wasps found in stored products. Essential details on inspection and trapping are included to aid in the early detection of infestations, allowing more time to plan and undertake effective pest control. An extensive bibliography provides a convenient entry point to the specialised literature on these insects. This concise yet comprehensive reference is an essential tool for people responsible for the storage and handling of dried durable products of plant and animal origin worldwide.
