The Electronic Grain Probe Insect Counter (EGPIC) system was enhanced by the addition of a second infrared beam orthogonal to the first in order to provide greater discrimination between detected insect species. Automated species identification permits population estimates and management control decisions to be made without entering grain storages. Sensor output amplitude histograms depict the level of confidence in species identification.
