As long as humans have been farming, producing, processing, and storing food, they have had to deal with pests able to wreak havoc on that food. According to Britannica.com, grain from the Stone Age has been found infected with fungal diseases, and locusts have plagued humans throughout history. Pest control has, of course, evolved significantly in the subsequent millennia — and that evolution is expected to reach considerable heights in the new decade with new technologies being developed for pest detection, prevention, and elimination – particularly related to the greatest of these in food plants: rodents and stored product insects. To provide a fundamental understanding of today’s technologies; their benefits for proactive, preventive pest control; and their applications with respect to today’s global standards and regulations, QA is bringing together an impressive array of speakers for its upcoming virtual conference, New Technologies in Food Plant Pest Control. If you’re considering installation of an electronic monitoring system or other pest control technology – or just want to learn more – you’ll want to attend QA’s New Technologies in Food Plant Pest Control Virtual Conference on Tuesday, April 14.
