is used to manage risk posed by insects and mold. Insects that infest the
interior of grain cause a significant deterioration in quality. Insects can
cause grain to warm, providing moisture migration that can support mold growth
and production of mycotoxins. The use of insect traps includes hormone stick
traps for moths and pit-fall traps for insects in the grain mass. Also monitor
the temperature of the grain during aeration and the fan run time when cooling
grain to ensure movement of the cooling front through the grain mass.
