Infestation Control Conference (ICC)

Izmir, Turkey

The CORESTA Pest and Sanitation Management in Stored Tobacco (PSMST) Sub-Group is committed to providing training to the tobacco industry and communicating the pressing issues, most accurate research, and latest developments. The ICCs have been conducted by the Sub-Group around the world. These seminars have been great examples of how the Sub-Group’s scientific research can be translated into improved working practices which are then communicated to a wide global audience. Except for the break during the Covid 19 pandemic, the conferences have been well attended by tobacco suppliers, cigarette manufacturers and pest controllers. These training sessions provide an excellent opportunity to demonstrate a common CORESTA Sub-Group approach to shared infestation problems. Conference attendees are introduced to insect biology, good sanitation and preventative practices, use of heat treatments for disinfesting manufacturing equipment, appropriate storage and handling practices, proper phosphine fumigation practices, freezing, and controlled atmosphere treatments.
