Insect and Rodent Control Activities

POP does not allow the presence of insects (harmful arthropods - cockroaches, flies, red house ants, mosquitoes, rat ticks; pests of stocks - beetles, butterflies, hay moths, ticks, etc.) and rodents (gray and black rats, house mice, field voles and other).

To combat insects and rodents, modern and effective means are used that are authorized for these purposes by bodies and institutions of the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Service in the prescribed manner. It is not recommended to use means such as adhesive tapes and surfaces to combat flies.

Disinfestation and disinfestation measures are carried out constantly and regularly in the prescribed manner. The methodology, multiplicity and conditions of disinsection and disinfestation work are regulated by hygienic requirements for disinfection, disinfestation and disinfestation work.

Insect and Rodent Control Activities

  1. Fighting rodents and insects
    In the premises for the production of bread, bakery and confectionery products, rodents and insects (flies, cockroaches, barns pests) are not allowed. To this end, enterprises should take measures to prevent their development. When they are detected, mechanical or chemical methods of disinfestation and pest control are used, which are authorized by the bodies of the Sanitary Inspection.
    For a long time, humans were disturbed by insects, which not only spoiled food, irritated with their bites, disturbed sleep, reduced efficiency, but also were carriers of pathogens of many diseases. Pest control is methods and means of combating harmful insects. Pest control at home can be carried out in various ways. Chemical methods
    Measures to combat infections are divided into preventive (preventive) and anti-epidemic, carried out against diseases that have already appeared. All measures can, in turn, be divided into three groups according to their focus on the element of the epidemic process: the source of infection, the spread of infection, and susceptibility of the population. Fighting the source of infection before
  4. Countries with human cases of bird flu and WHO global influenza action plan
    To date, human cases have been reported in seven countries, most of which are located in Asia: Vietnam, Indonesia, Iraq, Cambodia, China, Thailand and Turkey. In the first patients registered in Vietnam, during the current outbreak, the symptoms appeared in December 2003, and the H5N1 infection was confirmed on January 11, 2004. Reports from Thailand
  5. Rodents
    Two types of rodents cause a person the most trouble - a house mouse and a rat (gray and black). The harm caused by rats and mice is much more noticeable than we sometimes imagine. They not only make moves in floors and partitions, populate residential and warehouse premises, stockyards and elevators, but also spoil foodstuffs and can be carriers of some dangerous pathogens.
    Article 4.10.1. Requirements for the maintenance of colonies of laboratory animals The maintenance of colonies of laboratory animals of special genotypes requires strict adherence to cultivation methods in rooms specially designed for this purpose. Animals can be kept in a gnotobiont environment, which is either a system free of pathogenic pathogens or closed by vivarium (usually with
  7. Insect bites
    Usually insects do not actively attack a person, they are aggressive only when a person approaches their nests. A person can tolerate up to 500 insect bites, but in 1 out of 100 people even one bite can cause death. The most dangerous bites of hornet wasp, honey bee, gadfly and bumblebee. In people with hypersensitivity, an insect bite can cause an allergic or anaphylactic reaction.
    When considering various groups of parasitic insects, we have repeatedly pointed out their role in the transfer of diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, rickettsia, some worms, and protozoa. Diseases whose circulation is provided by carriers are called vector-borne diseases. In this section, we dwell in more detail on diseases whose transmission of pathogens is carried out by bloodsucking
  9. Allergy to insect poisons
    T. Fisher, G. Lawlor, Jr. Insect bites and stings cause local and systemic reactions of varying severity. These reactions can be both allergic and non-allergic. Systemic allergic reactions to insect poisons develop suddenly and require emergency care. An allergy to insect poisons is found in patients with atopic diseases, as well as in individuals who have never
  10. Class Insects - INSECTA
    Insects are the largest group of arthropods. Insects account for more than 70% of species from all animals that inhabit the planet. Representatives of the class are characterized by three pairs of legs (on the segments of the chest, of which there are three), one pair of antennae (corresponding to antennas of I crustaceans - appendages of the acron), the presence of wings. Fig. 25. The external structure of the insect (P. Abramoff, RGThomson. Appendixes
  11. Allergy to insect bites
    Cause Poisonous substances (toxins) that are kept secret, which, when bitten (stung), release mosquitoes, bees, wasps, hornets, bumblebees, flies, etc. These substances in many cases serve as analgesics (for mosquitoes) or paralyzers (for wasps), allowing the insect to quietly get to the "prey". Often an insect bite leads to edema, and in case of special sensitivity to anaphylactic shock.
    Thus, the parasitic lifestyle is widespread among insects and is represented by various forms. It should be noted that parasites, as an exception, are also found among Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, Neuroptera, Dermaptera. Among Neuroptera, species of the genera Sisyra, Climacia at the larval stage develop in freshwater sponges. Order Dermaptera contains the genus Hemimerus, representatives of which
  13. Bites of animals (wild, domestic, insects, snakes)
    First aid. Wounds from animal bites are treated, following the same principles as with other types of injuries. At the same time, a bite wound is always considered infected, since rabies cannot be excluded in a wild animal, cat or dog. The bitten limb above the bite is pulled with a scarf or belt and squeezed out as much blood as possible. The wound is treated with a solution.
  15. Insect bites
    The most dangerous bites of scorpions, arachnids: karakurt, tarantula. Symptoms are the same, with slight variations: pain at the site of the bite, redness, and then the development of symptoms of intoxication: nausea, vomiting, seizures, impaired cardiovascular activity and breathing. The patient loses consciousness. In severe poisoning, death may occur. The bitten is given symptomatic treatment. Bites
    Poisoning as a result of a bite by poisonous animals or arthropods is more severe in children with less body weight. Children are more sensitive to poisons than adults. Ladybugs. Contact with the poison of ladybugs is more often possible on fine days on the beaches. Through the tubules located in the paws, they release an orange poisonous drop containing cantharidin. In this case, blisters, skin necrosis may occur. At
