Twenty-three species of insects were recovered from commercial storage facilities in Sonora, Mexico. The most common were lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica Fab., and the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum. Abundance was greatest in wheat stored on the ground and lowest in semi-underground and country metal silos. Diversity was very high due in part to the warm and dry climate; the highest incidence of pests were in the Southern Region.
