An evaluation of five sampling methods for studying psocid population levels was conducted in two steel bins containing 32.6 tonnes of wheat in Manhattan, KS. Psocids were sampled using a 1.2-m open-ended trier, corrugated cardboard refuges placed on the underside of the bin hatch or the surface of the grain, and manual or automated electronic counts from Insector probe traps. Only two species were identified in this study: Liposcelis entomophila (Enderlein) in 2005 and L. decolor (Pearman) in… CONTINUE READING
