Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Trogoderma granarium (Everts), (khapra beetle), is one of the most destructive stored product insect worldwide. Most countries either have or are adopting quarantine restrictions on this insect. Increasing interceptions of this insect by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) at seaports and airports is prompting renewed concerns regarding potential for invasion and establishment of this species. The report summarizes initial results from a project to update control recommendations to prevent establishment and spread of this species.
