Stored product insects and other pests are a major hygiene and safety issue in many industries, from food production to the hotel trade. While fumigation has been the prevalent route for pest control, there remain issues with the toxicity of the chemicals used. With the phasing out of methyl bromide, heat treatment has emerged as one of the most promising new insect control methods and is becoming a critical element of integrated pest management. This book provides an overview of heat treatment for insect control. A section on fundamental issues is followed by chapters focusing on applications in different industries.
