Abstract

The second half of the last century saw the rise and fall of many insecticides for pest control. The advent of organophosphates, carbamates, pyrethrins, and pyrethroids seemed to be the key in protecting plants and harvested plant products against insect infestation. However, in less than 60 years, insects have become resistant to many of these insecticides, reducing their effective life. Because of the environmental and safety problems associated with insecticides, there is renewed interest in exploring alternatives to these conventional insecticides that are safe and environmentally benign. These alternatives, some new and some old, include the following: insect growth regulators, inert dusts, botanicals, repellents, attractants, extreme temperatures, modified and controlled atmospheres, and biological agents like parasitoids, predators, and pathogens. Many of these alternatives have been discussed in other chapters of this book. This chapter discusses, in detail, the role of modified and controlled atmospheres in stored-product protection.
