Abstract The larger black flour beetle Cynaeus angustus (Leconte) thrives in cotton gin trash piles on the Southern High Plains of Texas and sometimes becomes a nuisance after invading public and private structures. For better understanding of the basic larger black flour beetle ecology in gin trash piles, we conducted a series of laboratory and semirealistic field trials. We showed (1) in naturally infested gin trash piles, that similar trap captures were obtained in three cardinal directions… 
Biological Control Agent of Larger Black Flour Beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae): A Nuisance Pest Developing in Cotton Gin Trash Piles
TLDR
The data presented here support further research into applications of entomopathogenic nematodes underneath gin trash piles as a way to minimize risk of larger black flour beetle populations causing nuisance to nearby homes and businesses.
First record of the larger black flour beetle (Cynaeus angustus) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from Russia, with a review of its North American and trans-continental expansion
TLDR
The article presents the first record of C. angustus from Russia and the first records of this species in the literature from Ukraine, with a review of the history of spreading of the species beyond the native area, as well as it harmfulness.

Field trial of diatomaceous earth in cotton gin trash against the larger black flour beetle, Cynaeus angustus (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).
TLDR
Treating cotton gin trash with diatomaceous earth will probably be unable to prevent home infestations of larger black flour beetle, likely because the moisture content of field-stored gin trash is too high for DE to work effectively.
Emergence of the Larger Black Flour Beetle as a Major Pest of Farm-Stored Grain in Minnesota
TLDR
The significance of the larger black flour beetle (LBFB), Cynaeus angustus (LeConte), as a major insect pest of farm stored grain in Minnesota was investigated during 1977 and 1980 and rates of infestation increased with storage time and contributed to the heating of farm-stored corn.
Digestive proteinases of the larger black flour beetle, Cynaeus angustus (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
Abstract Digestion in the larger black flour beetle, Cynaeus angustus (LeConte), was studied to identify new control methods for this pest of stored grains and grain products. The physiological pH of
Geographical distribution of Cynaeus angustus (LeConte) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and its association with stored products
An investigation of the applied zoogeography of Cynaeus angustus was conducted to challenge the present status of this taxon as an uncommon, non-cosmopolitan stored grain insect of minor importance.
The development and use of pitfall and probe traps for capturing insects in stored grain.
TLDR
The development and use of pitfall and probe traps for capture of insects in bulk-stored grain are outlined and effectiveness of probe traps and grain sampling for detecting insects are given, and experience using probe traps in stored grain is reported.
