Technical Abstract: A discussion of ongoing research to determine strategies to limit immigration of various stored product pests will be presented. Prevention of infestation is an important component of IPM. In this presentation, current research into preventing or reducing the impact of insect immigration will be presented. Both practical and theoretical issues associated with perimeter treatments to reduce immigration will be covered. Specific areas to be discussed will include determining routes of entry, impact of perimeter pesticide treatments on populations, and the impact of sealing of openings on immigration. How these different approaches can be integrated into a broader IPM program will be discussed.
