Accurate species identification is essential for effective pest management. Stored-Product Insect Resource provides the most multi-faceted, comprehensive guide to information on 1,663 insect species associated with stored-products. This book covers 1,105 commodities and more than 9,200 different insect-commodity associations. A broad consideration of the species associated with stored products is important because many unfamiliar species are being encountered as a result of extensive international trade.

Information on 468 species of natural enemies provides a fuller understanding of the potential for biological control of stored-product insects. Commodities that are likely to be infested are listed for each insect species and information on suitability of some commodities as food is also reviewed. This book includes a catalog that can help locate pictures and keys to identify stored-product insects.

The authors each have more than 30 years of research experience and have taught stored-product entomology. This is their fourth book on stored-product insects. This title is a useful supplement to the textbook Fundamentals of Stored-Product Entomology by Hagstrum and Subramanyam. Stored-Product Insect Resource will be an important desktop directory for identifying and finding information on stored-product insects.
