The use of CO2 rich atmospheres showed promising results in disinfesting food commodities in small storage facilities. Many stored-product insects lay eggs in cracks and crevices containing food material, such as are found in many types of packaging. Newly hatched larvae may then be able to enter packaging flaws. First-instar sawtoothed grain beetle larvae can enter holes in packaging film in response to food odors escaping through the holes (Mowery et al, ).

    The Impact of Insects Because they dominate all terrestrial environments that support human life, insects are usually our most important competitors for food, fiber, and other natural resources. They have a direct impact on agricultural food production by chewing the leaves of crop plants, sucking out plant juices, boring within the roots. Insects as food or edible insects are insect species used for human consumption, e.g., whole or as an ingredient in processed food products such as burger patties, pasta, or snacks.. The cultural and biological process of eating insects (by humans as well as animals) is described as entomophagy.

      This is a multiple principal investigator (PI) project that involves three professors from the departments of Entomology and Grain Science and Industry. There are a total of five main projects to be conducted and all under the general topic area of protecting durable stored food products, those not requiring refrigeration, from insects, molds and other depredations that result in damage and.
