Prophylactic treatment is done in two steps. Under the 1st step, treatment is done only for external part of all premises at each location. In this spray is done that can cover a band of 2 meters i.e one meter wide floor and one meter high wall sides. This helps the in avoiding the crawling insect pests from coming inside the premises. 2nd spray over the food grain bags.
Doors are the main source of entrance for insect which maneuver around the warehouse. Thus it become highly necessary to treat this part of the warehouse. The doors are to be properly inspected as there should not be any gap between doors and the walls. If there is any such gap it needs to be blocked properly. Then the spray treatment of 2 meter around the walls.
Though very few warehouse need to have windows but still the one which do have window needs to be treated properly. Similar to the doors it needs to inspected properly. The pesticide is then sprayed 2 meter wide.
