Even in moderate climate zones insects cause losses of food. All types of packages made of cardboard, paper, plastics and aluminium are involved. In a large measure insects like beatles, moths and mites invade without restraint through untight spots on packages. The aspect of economic, non-pollutting and insect-proof food packages was not taken into account so far by the food and packaging industry. Testing of food packages which are applied in masses revealed that at present machine-made and machine closed bags are generally more insect-proof than folding cartons. But there are clear differences in package tightness subject to the applied package material.
