Most grain is delivered from the field free from insects. Contami- n6tidh comes from the bin or improper storage. Insects do best wheri moisture is present, so it is important to store grain after moisture Has been reduced to 13%. Notice the concrete floor in this corn crib. Rats or mice can't dig under, and the flooring is too high for them to reach it from the ground. A solid floor such as this also helps to keep the corn up where air can circulate through it. This is a familiar sight in the Cornbelt where grain is held under government storage. Chances are you have a bin or two on your farm. If you hold wheat or shelled corn under storage, be sure to check it about once a month for moisture leaks, insect damage, and rodent or bird contamination. Before fumigating, go over the entire outer surface of the grain bin with an approved residual insecticide. This step is very important. Insects may move out of the grain bin temporarily during fumigation, living in exterior cracks and joints only until the fumigant has subsided.
