Chilly reception runs off unwanted bugs!

Turns out the "chilly reception" that runs off unwanted relatives works on bugs, too:

You might not think bugs snuggled into stored grain would care which way the breeze was blowing, but entomologist Frank Arthur and agricultural engineer Mark Casada at our ARS Center for Grain and Animal Health Research at Manhattan, Kan., have shown that which way you pull air through storage bins can make a big difference in your bug problems.
