The aim of this study is to avoid the mistakes which lead to an inefficient pest control in meat processing plants. Pest control programme are an essential part of maintenance and sanitation. Pest poses a major threat to the safety of the food products. Unfortunately, in many cases I found that the pest control programmes were not correctly created and applied, so I met a lot of mistakes which should be avoided for an efficient prevention. Pests (insects, rodents, birds, dogs, cats) entering or infesting food plants are a significant potential source of microbiological, physical and chemical hazards (use of pesticides). Pests are carries for many microorganisms, pests are source of foreign bodies (insects themselves, hair, larvae etc.) and insects can transfer contamination from dirty areas to clean areas. The target of pest control is to prevent the pest ingress in the plant and not to combat them inside. Prevention is critical in pest control.
