Infestation and Temperature

Insect, mite, fungal and mycotoxin development are controlled by temperature. At temperatures typically found in grain stores, biological activity of insects etc doubles for every 10⁰C rise in temp.

  • Most insects breed rapidly at 25-33⁰C
  • Most insects can’t breed below 15⁰C
  • Grain weevils can reproduce slowly at 12⁰C
  • Below 5⁰ insects cannot feed and slowly die
  • Mites and fungi can increase (very slowly) down to 5⁰C in moist grain
  • Mycotoxin formation is most likely between 15⁰C and 25⁰C
