Diatomaceous earth is commonly used in stored grain management as a natural insecticide. It has proven results in suppressing insect pest damage to stored grain, including barley, buckwheat, corn, oats, rice, rye, sorghum grain, wheat, and mixtures of these grains. It's effective because it's made from the fossilized remains of tiny aquatic organisms called diatoms, which have sharp edges that can puncture the exoskeletons of insects, causing them to dehydrate and die. When applied correctly, it can help control pests like weevils, beetles, and other grain-damaging insects without leaving chemical residues on the grain. 

Diatomaceous earth is often used in conjunction with other insecticides for stored grain management to achieve a more comprehensive pest control strategy. Combining diatomaceous earth with chemical insecticides can enhance the effectiveness of pest management, especially when targeting a wide range of insects or dealing with severe infestations.  It's important to follow application guidelines carefully to ensure effectiveness and safety.
