"Disinsection" is the term used to describe the practice of spraying pesticides on aircraft to kill ¨stowaway〃 insects.
Aircraft are as susceptible to pest infestation as buildings, civil engineering structures and other modes of transport. Rodents and insects gain access onto aircraft whilst parked on the ground or are carried onboard by unwitting passengers in their luggage, and also in freight transported in the holds. These pests have to be controlled in order to maintain hygiene standards, but also to comply with air safety regulations enforced throughout the world.
Health authorities in many countries are becoming increasingly concerned about the potentially deadly risks of malaria carried into their territory by ¨jet-setting〃 mosquitoes that travel on international flights. It is a mandatory World Health Organisation (WHO) requirement on specific routes that Airlines use either aerosol disinsection spray cans during the flight while passengers are onboard or alternatively ensure the entire aircraft cabin is treated with an approved residual insecticide on a scheduled basis.
Safe and Health Concern
In terms of the issues and standards that may be arisen by disinsection, the key factors revolve around the following generic considerations being satisfied:
All treatment methods or practices must be carried out in such a manner that passengers and crew do not undergo any discomfort or suffer any injury to health.
No damage must be done to the structure or operating equipment of the aircraft.
ll risk of fire must be avoided.
Two currently WHO recommended active ingredients, namely d-phenothrin and permethrin and also natural pyrethrins.
- 2% d-phenothrin
- 2% permethrin
- % d-phenothrin + 2% permethrin
Approved Disinsection Methods (MQS & AQIS)
RESIDUAL CABIN AND HOLD DISINSECTION
Residual Disinsection of aircraft cabin and hold areas, including flight decks, toilet and locker areas etc.
PRE-EMBARKATION CABIN DISINSECTION
Pre-embarkation cabin disinsection is the most recently developed method of aircraft cabin disinsection, and provides for the spraying of aircraft cabins in the absence of passengers and crew, before embarkation. This method not only kills invertebrates that may be present in the cabin at the time of disinsection, but also leaves a minimal but effective amount of residue which is likely to kill invertebrates that can get on board between the time of disinsection and departure.
TOP OF DESCENT CABIN DISINSECTION
Top of Descent disinsection refers to a two-part process consisting of Pre-flight and Top of Descent disinsection spraying.
