    Mites in barley

    Got some Mites in whats left of my barley, strangely after the grain is crushed they don't return or at least I can't see them. Does the grain need to be whole by some chance for them to live or is it just a matter of time til they return?

    Mites and all their growth stages are easily killed by moving the grain with handling kit such as augers or pneumatic conveyors. You will have killed what was in the grain before bruising but it will become re infested if live mites are in store.
