Controlling pests in stored grain with carbon dioxide



Controlling pests in stored grain with carbon dioxide



Span 24(2): 69-71



The effectiveness of carbon dioxide in controlling pests of stored products and techniques for its use are discussed. Tests have shown that many insect pests can be killed with pure CO2 in 10-48 h, but exposure times >14 days are required when the atmosphere contains <40% CO2. Its effectiveness increases as ambient temp. increases, especially between 15 deg and 25 deg C, and in dry conditions.
