Hi everybody,

 

I would like to ask you, what do you use against the crawly insects inside of the warehouse / factory? Some kind of fheromone monitoring devices or anything else? Can you share here any links?

 

Thank you,

 

Ondrej

Hi,

 

Crawly insects covers a pretty big range of pests, can you tell us what they are or post a picture of one?

It kinda looks like a beetle.  Do they fly at all?  Have wings under their shell?

 

You could try using pharamone traps... but I'm not an entomologist so I'm not sure what exactly you would want to use.  I would talk to a local pest control company that works with food manufacturers they would be able to help you more specifically because they would know local species of bugs better. 

 

Of course someone who has dealt with more pests than I may be able to help you as well.  But every plant I've worked in has contracted out to a pest control company.

They are strawberry seed beetles in English.  Some article form the 60's says try malathion and fenitrothion (each at 0·15% active ingredient) or 0·1% a.i. of aldrin.  I don't know if those ar eon your approved chemical list and I have no experience/ brand name, but a lot of people on here know a lot about pest control

 

First line of action is usually identify/block entry (holes in walls, cracks in floors, open door seals) & get rid of any infested strawberries laying about.  clean clean clean where you see them.  Keep cleaning.  If that doesnt work, step it up to chemical treatment... as Incognitio mentioned, a pest control guy can help pick a chemical

Wow... good job Magenta.  That's Astounding! (sorry I just had to do it... Love rocky)

 

I tried to translate the page but it didn't work out too well... I was able to make out it was a beetle but what kind was beyond me.

Agree with Magenta, you need to have the areas of concern on a documented cleaning schedule where your sanitarians report any acitivity. 

 

Clean, clean, clean and then if your production schedule allows fumigate as per your pest control recommendations.Malathion if I recall, cannot be used at all when production is running, In theory, if you eliminate what they are eating, the infestation should diminish.

 

Best of Luck

Hi, 

additional to the refernces the others have given here also a page in German (perhaps one of the colleagues is able to read German, as I met a lot of German speaking people, when I visited your country for Ski holidays :-))

http://www.schaedlingskunde.de/Steckbriefe/htm_Seiten/Behaarter-Erdbeersamenlaufkaefer-Pseudoophonus-rufipes.htm

 

There is also mentioned, that you could use insectizide like Pyrethrum 

But best way would be after closing all holes contacting your local pest control company.

 

Yours

Werner

The insect is a beetle which enter from the exterior of  the building through gaps/openings.  This insect is an occasional invader and not a store product pest.  The corrective actions to take are as follows;

 

1) Vacuum up all food debris, cobwebs, dead insects along the 18" perimeter. Have pest control service apply a food plant approve microencapsulated pesticide along the interior and exterior perimeters; including all gaps/openings with a caulk along the floor/wall junction, expansion joints,  around utilities openings, and door /window gaps.

2) Seal up all gaps/openings with a caulk along the floor/wall junction, expansion joints,  around utilities openings, and door /window gaps. check the weather strip on doors.

3) Remove vegetation around the exterior perimeter also around 18" so there are no harborages for pest.

4) Inspect the incoming products to make sure the insects are not traveling inside the containers. If so notify the supplier so they can follow up with CAPA.

 

Hope this helps.  Take Care.
