The Grain Beetle is a healthy carrier of many unwanted germs in poultry and can be transmitted from one batch to another. These beetles are also a source of discomfort. The insect digs galleries in the sandwich panels of poultry houses. Within a few years, the walls are eaten from the inside, resulting in a loss of waterproofing and insulation.
