Hi, is there any reference documents to determine the extent of infestation of a certain pest? For example, Musca domestica, fly, count for the month of XX is 52 pieces (we are using fly paper). At 0-50 count, the infestation is low. Regards

An excellent question for yr contracted pest service.

A previous post here details Rentokil's action criteria for various creatures. sort of similar objective.

Yr fly example probably needs some context allied to risk assessment/trend analysis.

 

Maybe have a browse through these files/threads -

One of our customers addresses levels of activity and corrective actions for various pests. This is the one for flying insects.

Hi Marshall,

 

It's a neat plan but omits to elucidate what constitutes an acceptable base line. (admittedly not an unusual omission :smile:)


Kind Regards,

Charles,

 

The baselines are in a separate part of the document.
