Geoffrey Vernon Brooke Herford CBE (18 November – 2 February ) was a British research entomologist and civil servant.. He worked mainly in the area of insect damage to food supplies. As a result of the Second World War, he became the first director of the new government Pest Infestation Laboratory, and his work continued to be focussed on the control of insects that eat stored food. The Journal of Stored Products Research provides an international medium for the publication of both reviews and original results from laboratory and field studies on the preservation and safety of stored products, notably food stocks, covering storage-related problems from the producer through the supply chain to the consumer. Stored products are characterised by having relatively low.

If you think you have an infestation of stored product insects in your home or business, call Rentokil today on and we’ll help solve your SPI problem.. Our BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified technicians understand the habits of various stored product insects and they use this insight and knowledge to recommend effective and targeted treatments.   The following Infestation Prevention training is intended to introduce staff and student assistants to identify possible pest infestation problems and share with appropriate staff. The appropriate staff will follow up with the Valley Library Infestation Prevention Policy .

These include cereals, pulses, dried seeds and root crops. Insect infestation is a major contributor to quality deterioration of stored products kept in warm and humid climates.

The effect of different initial adult population densities of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) at several post infestation storage times on the final adult population density, the percentage of damaged beans, the percentage of weight loss, and the weight of insect feeding residues on cocoa beans was investigated in laboratory experiments.

Both factors interactively had highly significant (P.

Another factor affecting the infestation of stored grain or grain products is humidity, as it stimulates the growth of fungi. Munro and W.

In Benin, on-farm storage of paddy rice is increasingly exposed to pest damage. Insect infestation causes a loss of income to farmers and other post-harvest stakeholders.

The objective of this study is to assess the magnitude of damage caused to rice stored on-farm and evaluate the potential economic risk. In this study, 65 stocks of paddy rice were inspected and sampled in order to assess the. Describes the threat of insects when storing rice, and the necessary steps to control insect infestation.

Due to poor storage structures and conditions, severe losses in quality and quantity of stored food are inflicted.Coverage of stored-products insects in economic entomology books was generally very limited.
