12 Evaluation of ProvisionGard for Control of Flour Beetles Packaging- Film Woven Poly Dr. Frank Arthur Research Entomologist USDA-ARS-CGAHR Manhattan, KS 66502

13 Methods-Test 1 Circular disks of packaging cut to fit bottom portion of a 9.6 in2 plastic Petri dish Disks with inner and outer portions of the packaging Ten 4-week old red flour beetle larvae or ten confused flour beetle larvae of same age put in separate dishes with 300 mg flour Treated Dish-left, Untreated-right

14 Results to Date % Emergence-Red Flour Beetle % Emergence-Confused Flour Beetle Inner Outer Inner Outer Month ± ± 0.0 Month ± ± 1.6 Month ± ± 3.4 Month 6? 66.7 ± ± 3.3 Month ± ± 0.0 Month ± ± 6.7 Month ± ± 3.4 Month ± ± 8.1? Month ± ± 1.7 Month ± ± 6.1 Conclusions Confused flour beetle the more tolerant of the two species (consistent with other studies) Outer portion still active after 8 months Inner portion losing efficacy

15 Field Applications Data Bartlett Milling reports a 90% reduction in returns the first Year. Mars Food reports a 100% elimination of returns due to insect damage in 2011 for corrugated bulk shipments. Normally 4-5 truckloads are returned annually. Southern States reports no incidents of insect damage in packaged seed products for Pioneer Seed is reporting good control with multiwall bagged Seed Corn
