INSECT pests have been taking toll of mans' crops and herds since very early times and despite modern control techniques the annual loss is still very high.
It has been estimated that damage to stored grain alone may average 10 per cent, per year, or, in terms of the West Australian harvest, a loss by weevils of about twice the capacity of the large Midland Junction bin.
