The current status of conventional insecticides in the management of stored product insect pests in the tropics is discussed. Insect infestation in stored products is high in the tropics and may lead to 100% damage in severe cases. Conventional insecticides used in insect pest management, such as permethrin, lindane, pirimiphos-methyl, phostoxin (aluminium phosphide, which evolves phosphine), methyl bromide and iodofenphos and their methods of application are discussed.
