Abstract Simulation studies were conducted to determine temperature accumulations below defined thresholds and to show the impact of controlled aeration on populations of the rusty grain beetle, Cryptolestes ferrigineus (Stephens), a major secondary pest of stored wheat, Triticum aestivum (L.). Recorded data from weather stations in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, eastern New Mexico, and eastern Colorado (356 total) were used to determine hours of temperature accumulation below 23.9°C in June and July… Expand
Impact of Aeration on Maize Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) Populations in Corn Stored in the Northern United States: Simulation Studies
TLDR
Results of these simulation studies show that aeration alone without the use of insecticides should provide adequate management of maize weevil in corn stored in the northern United States. Expand
Potential for autumn aeration of stored rough rice and the potential number of generations of Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky in milled rice in Japan
Historical weather data from 84 sites in Japan were used to estimate the number of hours p151C from 1 September to 31 October, based on the individual years from 1994 to1999, to evaluate theExpand
Comparison of Aeration and Spinosad for Suppressing Insects in Stored Wheat
TLDR
The results suggest that spinosad is very effective in suppressing R. dominica, C. ferrugineus, and T. castaneum populations in stored wheat. Expand
Controlled Ambient Aeration During Rice Storage for Temperature and Insect Control
TLDR
It is indicated that controlled, ambient aeration can be an effective storage treatment against insects and may be a useful alternative to chemical controls. Expand
Feasibility of Automatic Aeration for Insect Pest Management for Rice Stored in East Texas
TLDR
Aeration using automatic controllers was compared with manually-activated aeration (manual aeration) in bins of farm-stored rice in Nome, Texas, from 17 September 2002 through the end of the year and total heat units at temperatures above 15°C were 150 to 300 degree days lower in bins with automatic aeration compared to manual aeration.

FEASIBILITY OF SUMMER AERATION TO CONTROL INSECTS IN STORED WHEAT
Temperature profiles and insect populations were compared in wheat that had been aerated with low airflow rates during the summer in addition to two autumn aeration cycles, versus wheat aerated inExpand
Interspecific associations among stored-grain beetles
TLDR
This work analyzed the densities of three important stored-grain beetle species, Rhyzopertha dominica, Cryptolestes ferrugineus, and Tribolium castaneum in wheat samples collected in 1999–2001 from 129 grain silos in Kansas, finding the species composition in grain samples may be modified by predation.

Use of a Web-Based Model for Aeration Management in Stored Rough Rice
TLDR
A web-based model was used to simulate the impact of aeration on population growth of the lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica, and the rice weevil in stored rough rice at Beaumont, TX, and results show how the various model inputs can help define broader patterns of insect control. Expand
CLIMATIC HUMIDITY EFFECTS ON CONTROLLED SUMMER AERATION IN THE HARD RED WINTER WHEAT BELT
Aeration is an inexpensive way to improve grain storage conditions, but it can be difficult to implement immediately after harvest in much of the hard red winter (HRW) wheat belt due to high ambientExpand
Directional flow of summer aeration to manage insect pests in stored wheat.
TLDR
Results seem to indicate that suction aeration would be more beneficial than pressure aeration for controlling insect pests in wheat stored in the southern plains of the United States. Expand

Feasibility of Aeration for Management of Maize Weevil Populations in Corn Stored in the Southern United States: Model Simulations Based on Recorded Weather Data
TLDR
Five geographic zones were delineated based on weather data from 53 stations; and a bin-cooling model, which was integrated with a model for maize weevil development, was used to predict weevil population growth in unaerated corn and corn aerated at 12.3°C, resulting in the lowest number of maize weevils. Expand
Effects of time of aeration, bin size, and latitude on insect populations in stored wheat: a simulation study
TLDR
In temperate climates, automatic aeration controllers should greatly reduce the need for chemical control and suppress C. ferrugineus suppression, especially in latitudes similar to those of Oklahoma and Kansas. Expand
Seasonal Variation of Stored Wheat Environment and Insect Populations
Temperatures of wheat in the top meter in on-farm cylindrical metal bins in Kansas were uniform and within a favorable range of 27–34°C for the first 12 wk and then declined at rates ranging from 1.3Expand
Management Practices in a High-Risk Stored-Wheat System in Oklahoma
TLDR
The stored-grain system appeared to minimize risk-dividing costs between producers and local elevator operators and the lesser grain borer, Cryprolesres spp. Expand
THERMOSTATICALLY CONTROLLED AERATION FOR INSECT CONTROL IN STORED HARD RED WINTER WHEAT
TLDR
Grain cooling early in the storage season resulted in the insect populations being controlled when adequate sanitation was practiced, and significantly greater insect populations and more grain damage occurred when the grain was not cooled until October. Expand
Development of Aeration Plans Based on Weather Data: A Model for Management of Corn Stored in Georgia
TLDR
Average cooling hour accumulations indicate that aeration could be used to cool corn when it is harvested and binned and would be an important addition for insect management plans for corn stored in Georgia. Expand
COOLING OF STORED WHEAT IN MULTIPLE OR SINGLE CYCLES USING AUTOMATIC AERATION CONTROLLERS
Aeration fan controllers were tested to determine their usefulness in managing aeration for insect control in hard red winter wheat stored in metal bins in Kansas. Thermostats were set to activateExpand
Pitfall Traps and Grain Samples as Indicators of Insects in Farm-Stored Wheat
TLDR
Pitfall traps and grain samples taken with a vacuum probe provided data on insect infestation in farm-stored wheat in 26 Kansas counties and each method was a more efficient detector of infestations in certain seasons and for certain insects. Expand
Seasonal activity of stored-product insects in and around farm-stored wheat.
TLDR
Grain moisture and test weight and the presence of livestock tended to affect insect numbers in the untreated experimental bins, but the effects were not always consistent among species, and the use of protectants on the grain tended to obscure expected relationships to environmental parameters.

Management of Stored Wheat Insect Pests in the USA
Management of stored-grain insect pests by farmers or elevator managers should be based upon a knowledge of the grain storage environment and the ecology of insect pests. Grain storage facilities andExpand
