In a nation where eating out is the norm, pest control is a big deal.
You can see it in every restaurant in Mumbai.
But there are still many places you can’t visit.
The best way to eradicate a problem is to have an inspector present.
If you’re coming from out of town, you can visit the city’s most pest-free zone (the Green Zone), where restaurants are allowed to remain open.
But even here, you may encounter a few pests that can’t be controlled by regular pest control methods.
A pest inspector is required to visit every restaurant and restaurant premises to check on pest issues.
They also conduct pest surveys and follow up on reports of illness.
The inspector is supposed to make sure the food is safe to eat, and ensure that the restaurant is not producing any sick food.
There are three different types of inspectors.
They are the Senior Food Inspector, the Junior Food Inspector and the Senior Manager of the Restaurant.
It is important to understand the different types and the process of how they work.
The Senior Food inspector checks for pests that are found in the food.
The Junior Food inspector monitors food quality.
The Manager of a Restaurant checks for pest issues and is responsible for making sure that food is healthy.
The Inspector of the restaurant and its food management team, also called a Pest Control Team, is responsible to ensure that no food is being eaten and that food safety is maintained.
There are various levels of Pest control: inspection, pest testing and pest control.
Food safety is the most important thing.
There is a requirement that every food served in a restaurant is safe for consumption, and that any food is not contaminated by disease or any other illness that might affect people, pets or animals.
You should always have a PEST CONTROL TEST done on food before you consume it.
If you do not, you are putting your health at risk.
While food is usually prepared for you by the Senior Management, you might also be served by the Manager of Food, or by a PESP, or your food may be prepared by a cook.
Pest management involves using a variety of pest management tools, such as hand-washing and spraying, and other techniques.
If your food is too spicy, you need to use more control measures.
PEST MANAGEMENT IS THE KEY If you are coming from outside the city, the pest control process can be complicated.
Restaurants have to check their food before serving it, and some restaurants even require that you sign a waiver stating that you have eaten a certain amount of food.
If it is a vegetarian restaurant, it might be a problem for you to sign the waiver as well.
The food inspector needs to be a licensed pest management professional, which is required for regular inspections and pest testing.
They must have a valid licence.
If the food inspector has to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, he or she needs to have a professional assistant or a member of staff who is on call 24 hours a day.
You need to be able to be in the restaurant 24 hours and go out with them.
You also need to know how to cook food properly.
If food is left to stand in the hot oven or under the grill, the food can develop bacteria that could cause food poisoning, and can be fatal.
There can also be contamination issues in food that has been left to sit in the fridge for too long, which can lead to food poisoning.
If there is no control system, the only option is to call the pest inspector.
PICNIC is the city-wide public pest control system that can be accessed on phones, laptops and tablets.
You are also able to register to receive updates on your pest problem.
There’s a pest control team in every major city in India.
But you can also use the PICNs mobile app.
You will need to register on the app, which will give you a contact number that you can use to contact your pest inspector, pest management team and PICnics team.
If PICns is not your first choice, you should consider using the Pest Management Team app.
They will contact you for pest control and pest monitoring.
You may also need a pest inspector to check the condition of your food before cooking it.
You might need a PICntest to check whether your food has been properly cooked.
