Lowering the moisture content of stored grain can gain extra time for cooling to prevent infestation: studies on the development, productivity and survival at two relative humidities of two insect species on whole wheat and artificial diet



Lowering the moisture content of stored grain can gain extra time for cooling to prevent infestation: studies on the development, productivity and survival at two relative humidities of two insect species on whole wheat and artificial diet



Advances in stored product protection Proceedings of the 8th International Working Conference on Stored Product Protection, York, UK, 22-26 July 2002: 696-701



Comparison of the development times of recently collected UK strains of the saw-toothed grain beetle, Oryzaephilus surinamensis, and the rust-red grain beetle, Cryptolestes ferrugineus, indicates that development was extended on whole wheat (cv. Mercia) grain compared with that on the usually employed laboratory diet.
