Target Pests

Conserve Plus controls four out of five stored grain pests, incuding resistant strains of:

  • Lesser grain borer (Rhyzopertha dominica)
  • Rust-red flour beetle (Tribolium castaneum)
  • Saw-toothed grain beetle (Oryzaephilus spp.)
  • Flat grain beetle (Cryptolestes spp.)

Rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) is not controlled by Conserve Plus. It is therefore essential to add an organophosate (OP) grain protectant to ensure complete insect control. Reldan™ Grain Protector will be the product of choice in most circumstances. When used on malt barley and maize, fenitrothion is the only OP mixing partner approved for use. 2
