Stored Grain Insects

Each year stored grain insects inflict millions of dollars in losses to grain producers through contamination or outright damage to the grain during storage.  If proper procedures are not followed, stored grain may be seriously damaged by a number of insect pests.  Insect pest management can reduce or eliminate damage to grain while stored in bins.  The publications below provide additional information about insect pests of stored grain and their management.
