Project Title

Early acoustic detection of grain storage insect pests (Beetle Sound Tube)

Project description

Insect pests in grain storages can cause severe financial losses. The “Beetle Sound Tube”-System is planned as an acoustic early detection system permanently installed in grain silos that provides information about insect infestation much earlier than conventional monitoring methods. The farmer/storekeeper gets readily prepared information about insect species, an indication about the level of infestation, suggestions for the next steps and can decide on the most suitable treatment. Therefore, treatment can start earlier, hotspots, damage, and succeeding losses can be prevented. Additionally, the introduction of parasitoids via the tube system will be tested. This could facilitate the access to the area of infestation and could increase the efficacy of biological control. The aim of the project is a ready to use acoustic early detection system for storage pest insects that farmers/storekeepers can run permanently in their grain storage to reduce losses due to infestation.
