A number of materials, mainly in the form of dusts, have been tested to find their value in preventing insect damage to stored seed wheat. In most of these experiments the dusts were mixed directly with the wheat which was exposed for three months in a room where there were large quantities of heavily infested grain.

A mixture of one-half fluid ounce of crude creosote to one pound of hydrated lime, mixed with the wheat at the rate of one-fourth ounce to one pound of wheat, gave practically complete protection from insect damage and did not injure the germinating qualities of the 'wheat. Several other materials also gave very good protection to the wheat.
