Laboratory determination of the requirements for control of Trogoderma variabile (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) by heat
The use of heat to disinfest storage structures (the bake-out technique) is enjoying a resurgence of interest because it represents a possible replacement for whole structure fumigation with methylExpand

Importance of Processes of Natural Ventilation to Fumigation and Controlled Atmosphere Storage
Abstract: For either fumigation or controlled atmosphere (CA) treatments, gas losses from the treatment enclosures caused by the processes of natural ventilation must be reduced to a very low rate. AExpand

Fumigant Toxicity of Essential Oils and Monoterpenes Against the Red Flour Beetle, Tribolium castaneum Herbst
Abstract Toxicity of various essential oils and their volatile components against the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) was determined. The most potent fumigant toxicity was found inExpand

The acute mortality effects of carbon dioxide on various life stages of Sitophilus oryzae
Abstract Raised levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) are known to be toxic to many insect species. Sitophilus oryzae had previously been shown to be one of the more tolerant species to this treatment.Expand

Effect of grain on apparent respiration of adult stored-product Coleoptera in anair-tight system: implications for fumigant testing
Abstract Observed rates of carbon dioxide production and oxygen consumption by adult Sitophilus oryzae on wheat in a 2.5L sealed system for a 24h period were about four times greater than the sum ofExpand

Fate of (14)C-labeled carbonyl sulfide on grains and grain fractions.
14C-Labeled carbonyl sulfide (COS) was used to measure the amount of sorbed fumigant and alteration products on grains. Wheat, paddy rice, polished rice, mungbean, and safflower were exposed to a 60Expand
