Prevent Insect Problems in Grain Bins

Grain bin

Before treating with an insecticide, make sure the bins are free of insect-infested grain. Leftover grain should be removed from the bin, and the walls should be swept and vacuumed. All grain handling equipment, such as augers, combines, trucks and wagons, should be thoroughly cleaned and grain residues removed before harvest. Also, the 2013 North Dakota Field Crop Insect Management Guide has good information on insecticides registered for use in stored grains.
