Storing grain in sacks is useful if there are large quantities to store. If theft from outside granaries is common, sacks can be stored in a room with a lock. Sacks are best stored in rooms with concrete floors and walls.
- Sacks should never be stored directly on the floor. Make strong frames from poles or wood. Stack the sacks on these frames allowing an open space in the middle for air. Don’t let the sacks touch the walls.
- If the sacks are turned twice each day for the first two weeks, most pests will be destroyed since pests need to fix themselves into one position to start eating into a grain. Regular turning prevents this and results in pests dying of hunger.
