Winter cereals include wheat, barley, oats, canary and triticale... Insects are not normally a major problem in winter cereals but there will be times when they build up to an extent that control may be warranted... Small larvae take 8-10 days to reach a size capable of head lopping, so if small larvae are found in crops nearing full maturity/harvest no spray may be needed, whereas small larvae in late crops which are still green and at early seed fill may reach a damaging size in time to significantly reduce crop yield...

If insects in grain are left untreated, the grain will, be unsaleable to most buyers, be reduced to dust by the insects feeding on it and go mouldy because of the heat and moisture released by the insects... If insects are detected as grain is outloaded for sale, treatment is likely to delay the delivery by two to four weeks... Key points most markets want grain free from insects and some want freedom from chemical residues, so check with potential buyers before you treat with chemicals clean grain handling and storage equipment and dispose of or treat old infested grain aeration cooling reduces insect activity, but may have to be used with other methods in summer chemical sprays are registered only for cereal grains, not pulses and oilseeds There are no simple short cuts for storing grain safely...

Mites are common pests in grain storages and mostly occur in damp or moist grain, residues, oilseeds and animal feeds... When present in large numbers mites appear as a moving carpet of brown dust on the grain, silos and sheds or on stacks of commodities, sometimes emitting a damp or pungent smell... If you are in doubt about the identification of insect or mite pests in stored products, please send live specimens to: Stored Grains, Entomology, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI), 80 Meiers Road, Indooroopilly, Queensland, 4068...

They lay eggs in the soil which hibernate throughout winter, allowing populations of mites to build up over a number of years, causing severe damage if crop rotation is not practised... Peanut mites attack peanuts with high populations resulting in shedding of lower leaves and eventual plant death... Economic losses from peanut mites are mainly associated with young crops during dry weather...
