Objective
Studies show that aerosol insecticides can kill the red flour beetle and confused flour beetle in flour mills, and that aerosols also give residual control. In this project we will evaluate different aerosols applied from a portable application system, compare the residual control with aerosols applied through a fixed application system, and evaluate if the aerosols are dispersing to obstructed sites within a mill.
