Rattus norvegicus or sewage rat has a lifestyle more closely linked to subterranean environments and environments near watercourses, whereas Rattus rattus or

Food beetle

Food beetle (Sericorn Lasioderma, Stegobium paniceum, Oryzaephilus, etc.) Food beetles are a heterogeneous species of beetle that in the larval stage and in some species even in the adult stage develop by living on food and stores of food. Harm results not so much from the amount of material, taken as from the disturbances caused to the mass and the

Food moth

Food moth (Plodia interpunctella, Ephestia spp., etc.) Food moths are a heterogeneous group of "butterflies" which in the larval stage live on food and stocks of foodstuff. Harm results not so much from the amount of material, taken as from the disturbances caused to the mass and the associated biological contamination from faeces, discarded shells, corpses, tissue, etc. The disturbances

Le colonie vengono stabilite nei punti più disparati e a seconda delle esigenze biologiche della specie. Tipicamente è possibile trovare “nidi” di formica nei

The three species most likely to infest habitational and working environments have differing biological aspects. For example, B. orientalis is a typical pest of subterranean environments (ducts,
