Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Insect pest management in stored products, and in particular the concept of integrated pest management (IPM), has different meanings depending on one's viewpoint of IPM. One of the difficulties in stored products is adequately sampling large bulk bins or silos of raw stored grain or large milling and food production facilities. This sampling difficulty has led to the adoption of management in stored product as a component-based strategy rather than a decision-based strategy. Selected components will be explored in detail, and needs for future research will be presented as discussion points. Research data will be used to illustrate specific points.
