Start date
2003
End date

Objective
Insect contamination in storage, processing, distribution, and retail facilities can result in serious economic consequences when products become infested. Further research is required to develop reduced-risk insecticides and physical control methods to replace conventional insecticides and fumigants which may soon be lost to users in the US, and to develop effective integrated pest management programs that will maintain quality of stored-foods.
