The aim of this forum is to facilitate exchange of information and discussions related to insect production, between ERGIP members. The ERGIP forum is covering a broad area and hosting multiple discussion channels, such as insect technologies, insects’ genetics, insect application and insect nutrition, etc.). Furthermore, it is within the scope of this forum to provide young scientists with a channel (young scientist corner) for discussing and disseminate latest research in insect production.

    Indeed, few of the solutions you propose are effective. Perhaps we should act as in other livestock species and use “all in all out” systems that allow us to fumigate the rooms before being occupied again.

    On the other hand, it is very important to control the fresh raw materials that we use in Tenebrio diets. Obtain them at the exit of the agro-industrial process (before they are contaminated by other insects) and keep them in insect-free spaces until they are used.
