Arthro-Pod EP 58: Stored Product Pests with Rob Morrison

Howdy, howdy bug lovers! Today Jody and Jonathan meet up with Dr. Rob Morrison of the USDA to talk about stored product pests. Insects in this category can eat or spoil the food we wish to eat and affect all of our lives! Rob is an expert in their biology and control and talks about all the ways we try to deal with these pests as well as new ideas for the future. Tune in to hear about weevils, fumigation, and more!
