Heat Provides Effective Control of Insects in Stored Grain Products

To protect stored grain products, chemical alternatives to methyl bromide include phosphine fumigants, carbon dioxide under pressure, and sulfuryl fluoride. However, the length of treatment time, cost, and chemical residues are significant drawbacks to these chemicals. Even if residue were not a problem, insects are developing resistance to many of the chemicals now being used. This has created renewed interest by the grain industry in the use of heat as a method of controlling insect infestation.
