Abstract
This is a very brief description of the different methods of storing foodstuffs in Nyasaland. Some sort of receptacle is usually made, but seldom is there any attempt to give protection against attack by insects, rats and mice, and the annual loss from this cause is extremely heavy. Even monkeys and baboons take their toll of stored grain, and I have several times seen them actually robbing stores, particularly when situated on the edge of a village.
