*Outdoor containers must have tight-fitting lids and must be kept covered at all times. Keep their drain plugs in place Maintenance: Make sure the building is sound. There should be no leaks, holes, or cracks in the floors, foundation, ceilings, or windows. In the photo here, the maintenance worker is filling a crack in an exterior wall to keep pests out. Pests: Careful cleaning eliminates the pests’ food supply, destroys insect eggs, and reduces the places pests can take shelter. • Throw out garbage quickly and correctly. Keep garbage containers clean and in good condition. Keep outdoor containers tightly covered. Clean up spills around garbage containers immediately, and wash containers regularly. • Store recyclables in clean, pest-proof containers. Keep them as far away from your building as local regulations allow. Prevention Check all deliveries before they enter your operation. Refuse shipments in which you find pests or signs of pests. This includes egg cases and body parts (legs, wings, etc.). • Make sure all of the points where pests can access the building are secure. Screen all windows and vents, and patch or replace them when needed. Seal cracks in floors and walls and around pipes. Install self-closing doors and air curtains (also called air doors or fly fans) above or alongside doors Control: Even after you have made every effort to keep pests out, they may still get into your operation. Work with a PCO to get them under control. Even if you only spot a few pests, they may actually be present in large numbers. Infestations can be very difficult to eliminate. • Look for feces, nests, and damage on products, packaging, and the facility itself. The image on the slide shows a rodent nest. • Contact your PCO immediately if you see these or any other pest-related problems, so that

control measures can be taken. • Poisonous or toxic pest-control materials should only be applied by a certified applicator. CH 10 Cleaners: Stable Non Corrosive Safe to use Types: Detergents degreaasers Delimers Abrasive cleaners Follow instructions only intended purpose Saniter: Methods: Heat- Immerse item in water that is 171 of for at least 30 seconds High temp dishwasher Chemical Soak In solution Rinse swab or spray items with solution Common sanitizers: Chemical: Chlorine Iodine Quats ammonium compounds Detergents sanitizer blends : Use it once to clean Use it a second time to sanitize In some cases, you can use detergent-sanitizer blends to sanitize. Operations that have two-compartment sinks often use these. Concentration: Several factors influence the effectiveness of chemical sanitizers. The most critical include concentration, temperature, contact time, water hardness, and pH. • Sanitizer solution is a mix of chemical sanitizer and water. The concentration of this mix—the amount of sanitizer to water—is critical. Too much water may make the solution weak and useless. Too much sanitizer may make the solution too strong and unsafe. It can also leave a bad taste on items or corrode metal Effectiveness: Concentration is measured in parts per million (ppm). To check the concentration of sanitizer solution, use a test kit. Make sure it is made for the sanitizer being used. These kits are usually available from the chemical manufacturer or supplier.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
