Volunteers to monitor insect infestation

A number of years ago, the Kashrut Department established a laboratory for monitoring infestation in flour, fruits, vegetables, grains etc. With the assistance of international experts in this field we have been able to set guidelines for checking & cleaning food items.

In order to keep monitoring changes in the local situation, we need a number of volunteers to systematically assess the current circumstances.

If you are willing to assist us by becoming part of this team of people checking in your own homes and reporting back to us, please contact Pinchas Godberg via email (pinchas@uos.co.za).

You will need to attend a session where Pinchas takes you through our current methods of checking, after which we will expect you to keep methodical records of your findings and keep us informed.
