Safety is a three-step process - identify hazards, assess risk and address the hazard... Most lids still require a climb to the top of the silo to inspect rubber seals and latch the lid before the silo will meet a half-life pressure test, required for effective fumigation... Safe and sound on the ground: Ground-operated lids reduce the number of times a silo has to be climbed, but most situations require a climb to secure the lid for effective fumigation...

It is believed to be the first time that elimination of on-farm grain-storage insects with strong phosphine resistance has been scientifically documented and confirmed in Australia and possibly the world... Hygiene treatments used at the Wubin farm to eradicate the resistant RFB population included: pressure washing inside empty silos, storage surrounds, handling equipment and machinery; the application of contact chemical insecticide to kill insects in grain residues at the base of silos and the removal of waste for burial; and treating clean, empty silos with diatomaceous earth protectant to prevent reinfestation...
