Technical Abstract: This presentation is part of the symposium "Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Stored Product Entomology", presented at the 5th National IPM Conference. The use of IGRs as grain protectants, contact insecticides, and aerosols will be described and discussed using examples from current research projects. Target insect species for the research projects used for discussion are the lesser grain borer, a major pest of stored grains, and the Indianmeal moth, the primary pest of processed and packaged foods.
