The food industries are environmentally complex and food of various origins are subject to the most varied processes.
Industrial complexes are environments that by their nature can attract pests even more if they contain and process foodstuffs.
The prevention, monitoring and control of pests is a procedure required by Reg. EEC 852/2004 to ensure the hygiene of food.
Indeed, in the food industry and other industries, insects and other pests are potential carriers of human pathogens transmitted to food through contact, salivary secretions, regurgitation and/or excretions.
Food exposed to the action of pests can pose a serious risk to human health.
At the same time, the activities carried out for fighting infestation must not contribute to increasing the risk of chemical contamination of food and food processing environments.
