    Abstract

    Based on surveys of species of museum pest insects commonly found in Fennoscandia, a number of important species were selected for a study of mortality caused by exposure to modified atmosphere (>99.7 % nitrogen). In most of the species 100 % mortality was obtained within 72 hours of exposure. Preliminary analysis of the results revealed that the larval and pupal stages were most tolerant to the anoxic treatment.
