Georgina Bingham, research associate professor of entomology at Nebraska, holds an airtight, insect-resistant storage bag known as a ZeroFly® Hermetic bag with insecticide incorporated to prevent damaging pest infestations. She led the development of the bags while working for the Swiss company Vestergaard. It reduces the loss of seeds or grains that can be consumed, stored for security, or sold for optimized prices. It is said to be free of the hazards associated with fumigation or the potential for pesticide residues that come from inaccurate insecticide spraying. The insecticide is incorporated into individual fibers of the bags, which provides a killing action before insects can infest the grain or seed packed in the bag a bag. May 26, 2022.
