- ... Metabolic heat rates, determined by microcalorimetry, were used to measure the effect of controlled atmospheres (CAs) and elevated temperatures on the stored-product insects Sitophilus oryzae (rice weevil) and Tribolium confusum (confused flour beetle). Results for larval and adult stages in air, and in a range of low O2 and/or high CO2 CAs, at temperatures from 15 to 45 °C, showed the general eff ...
