Acquisition of knowledge referring the main problems of food pest control in processing and storing environments. Aspects of arthropod success. Potential arthropods vectors microorganisms. Insect morphology: tegument, head, chest, abdomen. Muscular, nervous, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, secretory, reproductive system. Development post-embryonic. Biology insect food and environment production and storage of food: Collembola, Thysanura, Psocoptera, Blattodea, Orthoptera, Lepidoptera (Pyralidae, Tinedae, Gelechidae), Diptera (Muscidae, Sarcophagidae, Calliphoridae, Piophilidae, Drosophylidae), Coleoptera (Curculionidae, Bostrychidae, Anobidae, Silvanidae, Bruchidae, Tenebrionidae), Imenoptera: (Formicidae, Vespidae, Apidae). Mites: features of morphology, anatomy and post-embryonic development. Development and control conditions. Prevention: environment, machinery, cleaning. Different food packaging resistance to insects attack: examining a hole in food packaging to determine infestation origin. Monitoring: direct visual examination, sieving, biological method. Filth-test method of analysis to detect arthropod fragments in a food: flours, pasta, honey, fruit juices, mushrooms, dried vegetables. Methods of analysis of infestations in environments: food traps, light traps, pheromone traps. How to use monitoring data. Physical control insect: controlled atmospheres, low and high temperatures, entoleter, inert dusts, vacuum. Insecticides: legislative references, formulated types, toxicity, knockdown effect, persistence, pyrethrum and pyrethroids, neonicotinoids, insect growth regulators and fumigants. Morphology and biology and ethology: Mus mus, Rattus rattus and R. norvegicus. Direct and indirect damages. Prevention and monitoring. Species detection, mechanical and chemical methods and results control. Outlines of pest management control of food and processing environments. Legislative references and considerations on Article 5 - 283/1962.
