Hello to everyone!I own a small company on pest control activities and recently one of my supplier has an audit on IFS vers 6.On the "pest control" checklist the auditor has identified an issue regarding the way that we do the "trend" and why don 't we write about the neighbour's.Could someone please explain me what exactly need to complete in the TREND or maybe an example.

Hi Florin,

 

Pest control companies usually make an Excel document, which includes two different kinds of graphics:

 

- one that represents all the baits, with the summary of captures/grams consumed along the year by bait.

 

- one different graphic for every bait, with captures/grams consumed by month.

 

Finally, you should explain any trend detected and include a little summary and recomendations. From your comment, I think that your client's company surroundings could affect to ffos dafety (farms, rivers...).

Hi Florin1980,

 

To add to above post:

 

IFS states in 4.13.6 The effectiveness of the pest control shall be monitored with the help of regular trend analyses.

Trend analysis can be by review of pest activity such as sightings or bait takes, identifying repeat activity areas, identifying repeat issues such as proofing or corrective actions identified. Also catch tray analysis to identify species and numbers which may highlight proofing issues or doors being left open,

Kind regards,

Tony

I'll snip part of the write up ours does:

 

Externally: Brown Rat (Rattus norvegicus) activity has been recorded during scheduled

inspections to the premises by the way of bait consumption from the in place perimeter

monitors, this included an additional Call Out visit, (13/11/14), due to reported evidence of

Rats harbouring externally, rear of Marinade Room, additional treatment carried out at the

time.

Consumption of bait from external rodent monitoring points was observed. This was

considered to be due to Wood Mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) activity - non target species

that poses minimal risk to the business as they are an outdoor dwelling species that are

reluctant to enter and remain within buildings and therefore should not be regarded as a pest

species externally. Use of Detex non-toxic indicator blocks to be used for monitoring outer

perimeter monitoring points without risk of secondary or non-target poisoning.

 

Fly control units

 

Generally the numbers of flying insect activity recorded from the catch tray analysis shows

increased exterior fly activity through the summer months and may show peaks of day/night

flying insect activity as they tend to migrate into internal areas of the premises.

The category of day/night flying insects caught may give the evidence that at certain times of

the day, doors are remaining open for possibly long periods at a time, (most likely during

deliveries, the moving of stock and taking out waste materials), which is allowing the natural

ingress of seasonal day flying insects, although there maybe periods when doors are

occasionally left open for longer periods and automated doors may help reduce the ingress

of recorded flying insect activity.
