Book Description :

This reference discusses the fundamentals of stored-product entomology that need to be considered in planning, implementation, and evaluation of a pest management program. It is based on the review of an extensive database of references and many years of research on stored-product insect problems by the expert authors. The information in this book helps answer consumers’ concern about pesticide residues in food by providing helpful IPM and alternative approaches for pest management. It provides the basic information needed to manage pests with and without the use of chemicals. Managing pests requires a thorough understanding of insect biology, behavior, ecology, sampling, pros and cons of management options, and responses of insects to the various management options. This comprehensive book covers all of these topics, beginning with a discussion of the scope of stored-product entomology. It also provides insight into the diversity of foods and habitats utilized by stored-product insects, the types of economic losses attributable to them, and the ways in which an understanding of their biology can be used to study or manage these insects. Insect mobility, sources of insect infestation, sampling, life history, and population growth are discussed as well, as they play an important role in developing an effective sampling program. In addition, decision aids, the cost of management methods, and the resistance of insects to management methods are covered. For insight into the thought process of choosing treatment options, eight pest management methods are thoroughly described, including a statement of the basic operating principle and background information. For help choosing various chemical and nonchemical methods for diverse situations, the advantages, disadvantages and implementation options for each method are given. Students, extension educators, consultants, food industry sanitarians and managers, legislators, regulators, and insect pest management professionals are sure to find information that will help them to improve pest management. Study questions at the end of each chapter Suggested supplemental reading, including books, conference proceeding papers, literature reviews, research papers, government publications, and popular articles General overview of the biology for a basic understanding of pest control issues Guides the reader through the thought process of designing a pest control program or research study Images of the most damaging of stored-product insect pest species for identification of families Quick methods for distinguishing closely related stored-product insect species

Book Description :

This book aims to assess, evaluate and critically analyze the methods that are currently available for a judicious pest management in durable food. It presents and analyzes a vast amount of methods that are already in use in “real world” industrial applications. After the phase-out of methyl bromide, but also the withdrawal of several insecticides and the continuously updated food safety regulations, there is a significant knowledge gap on the use of risk-reduced, ecologically-compatible control methods that can be used with success against stored-product insect species and related arthropods. The importance of integrated pest management (IPM) is growing, but the concept as practiced for stored products might differ from IPM as historically developed for field crops. This book discusses a wide variety of control strategies used for stored product management and describes some of the IPM components. The editors included chemical and non-chemical methods, as both are essential in IPM. They set the scene for more information regarding emerging issues in stored product protection, such as emerging, alien and invasive species as threats for global food security, as well as the importance of stored-product arthropods for human health. Finally, the analysis of the economics of stored product protection is presented, from theory to practice.

Book Description :

Agricultural Entomology presents a global view of the insect groups that are of major significance to human resources. "Agriculture" in this broad sense includes plants grown for food, horticultural field crops, and other ornamentals. Information is also included on insect pests of stored products, forest resources, and livestock, although in less detail. The book is intended for use as a college text and reference and assumes a basic knowledge of entomology but is also of great value outside the classroom for its comprehensive and detailed approach. There is a chapter on beneficial insects, including pollinators, honeybees, silkworms, and insects from which shellac and cochineal are made. Hundreds of high-quality line drawings and black-and-white photographs illustrate the insects, and an illustrated glossary and indexes of scientific and common names are provided. Almost all countries of the world are undergoing agricultural diversification programs with the introduction of new and exotic crops. Yet most books on insect pests restrict coverage to one country or region or to the tropics or temperate zones. The global approach of Agricultural Entomology emphasizes the similarities and important differences between insect pests of the major continents. It thus brings attention to insect species that might well spread as pests to new geographical areas. Closely related species are also treated, highlighting problems of control that could result from unsubstantiated identifications. Agricultural Entomology is a valuable resource for growers and gardeners interested in the developing field of integrated pest management. With copious information on the biology of insects around the globe, this authoritative and comprehensive book is an essential tool for anyone interested in understanding both the foes and allies of the insect world.

Book Description :

Stored products represent an enormous economic output, but insects regularly immigrate into these stored products from the surrounding landscape throughout the post-harvest supply chain, feed on these products, and cause extensive economic losses. Integrated pest management (IPM) holistically combines multiple management techniques to control an insect within a system. A key component of an IPM program is prevention. Deploying effective prevention strategies is a proactive approach to managing insects prior to them contacting and infesting food facilities and products. Long-lasting insecticide netting (LLIN), which usually contains an incorporated pyrethroid, has been used as part of a strategy to reduce the spread of malaria in tropical regions since the 1990's, and has only recently been considered for its application in pre- and post-harvest agricultural contexts as a preventative IPM tool. The goals of this thesis were to evaluate the behavioral effects of LLIN (0.4% deltamethrin) on the movement and dispersal ability of three stored product insect species: Tribolium castaneum, Rhyzopertha dominica, and Trogoderma variabile in laboratory tests. Additionally, the efficacy of LLIN in semi-field, release-recapture assays was evaluated by deploying the netting in pilot-scale warehouses alone or within attract-and-kill (AK) traps to intercept insects immigrating into food facilities and attempting to enter commodities. Within the parameters of this thesis, LLIN was found to significantly reduce distance traveled and velocity of all three focal species. The ability of the insects to disperse to a novel food resource after exposure to LLIN was significantly reduced as well. Immature stages of T. castaneum and T. variabile were also significantly reduced in their movement and dispersal ability after exposure to the netting. Both life stages showed reductions in mobility after short exposure times to the netting, and these effects were long-lasting. In the semi-field experiments, pilot-scale warehouses that deployed LLIN had significantly fewer infestations and subsequent progeny production inside their commodities compared to warehouses without LLIN. Among the three tested methods of netting deployment, the efficacy of each deployment type was similarly effective. Finally, the efficacy of LLIN was evaluated in combination with another IPM tool, AK traps, which contained a small amount of grain and a commercial lure, all confined within two pieces of LLIN as the kill mechanism. Deploying these tools, alone or together, resulted in significant numbers of affected individuals recaptured inside the warehouse, yet outside of the commodity. Overall, LLIN is a promising tool for diversifying prevention tactics of stored product IPM. Future work should evaluate the performance of the netting in commercial food facilities and with other IPM tactics to create novel management strategies and continue evolving alongside these post-harvest pests.

Book Description :

In 1980, the International Symposium on the Ecology of Bruchids Attacking Legumes (Pulses), organized by Dr. Labeyrie, was held at Tours, France. Since then, there has been tremendous progress in the area of Bruchid and Legume research. At the same time, as we face the problems of world-wide population explosion and food shortage, the importance of legumes as the world's major protein source is rapidly increasing, especial ly in tropical regions. Thus, it seemed appropriate to hold the Second Symposium in order to review the recent progress in the control of Bruchids and in the biology and ecology of Bruchids and legumes. This is an important part of the search for ways to integrate these fields with a common perspective. The Second International Symposium on Bruchids and Legumes (ISBL-II) was held in September 6-9, 1989 at Okayama, Japan under the joint auspices of the Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology and of the Foundation for Advancement of International Science. Significant contributions have originated in Japan on the study of Bruchid and legumes. Most notably, the study on population ecology by Professor S.
