In-transit fumigation of truck-ship containers with hydrogen phosphide

In-transit fumigation of truck-ship containers with hydrogen phosphide

Advances in Agricultural Technology, Agricultural Research Service, United States Department of Agriculture (AAT-S-28): iii + 13

In studies in the USA, truck-ship containers of 3 sizes (20, 35 and 40 ft long) were fumigated with phosphine (hydrogen phosphide) when they were loaded or empty, or stationary or in transit. Bioassay tests were carried out with eggs, larvae and pupae of the almond moth (Ephestia cautella (Wlk.)), eggs, larvae and adults of the red flour beetle (Tribolium castaneum (Hbst.)), and larvae of the black carpet beetle (Attagenus unicolor (Brahm)).
