There are plenty of devices and techniques on the market that can be used in food handling areas. Some of them are not very useful and some are used incorrectly. Here is the guide for their correct use.

Electronic fly killers

It uses UV light that attract insects. When insects get close to the grill, it electrocutes them. This device has the problem because the dying fly spins around and scatters fragments of dead insects already in the tray. Dead insect fragments can fall on food or food handling surfaces transmitting bacteria. That is not convenient for commercial usage. Better solution is the glue board or catch pad variety.

Time release aerosols

These devices include an aerosol fitted inside of it which activates the aerosol on pre-determined intervals. In most cases aerosol contains pyrethrin or synthetic pyrethroid insecticides. It is effective against flying insects and in smaller rooms.

Cockroach bombs

It releases aerosols which contain residual insecticide and an insect growth regulator which brake life cycle of insects. Cockroaches’ bombs are good for flying insects which are exposed at the time of treatment.

Electromagnetic and ultrasonic devices

These devices are used for controlling of rodents and insects but they are not so effective against them. Electromagnetic forces don’t repel rodents and the ultrasonic signals don’t penetrate surfaces as they cast their sound waves. It is recommended to use conventional pest control.

Integrated pest management

Integrated pest management is one of the most effective pest control programs that cover areas like building maintenance and exclusion practices, inspection and monitoring, advice about good housekeeping practices, physical and chemical control methods, and environment management.
