Figure 11-12.-Five-can dishwashing battery. Lubricate all moving parts with light lubricating oil to  ensure  proper  functioning.  Examples  of  moving  parts are  hinges,  handles,  and  rollers.  You  should  lubricate the rails within the cabinet (used for positioning the burner unit) with an antiseize compound. This makes it easy to slide the cradle with the cooking pot and the burner unit in and out of the cabinet. You should clean the field range cabinet after each meal. This is done by scrubbing with hot soapy water and a stiff scrub brush to prevent buildup of drippings and food particles. You also should clean the cabinet as you go. Spilled liquids on the cabinet should be wiped off  immediately.  Do  not  allow  food  particles  and  liquids to bake onto the cabinet. Do not use abrasives such as a wire brush, steel wool, or emery cloth on the sheet metal or aluminum alloy. To do this would mar the finish. Rinse the cabinet thoroughly with hot clear water and dry. Pest Control Sanitary  precautions  include  measures  to  eliminate pests  and  prevent  their  breeding.  The  two  most important types of pests for you to control are flies and rodents. FLIES.— In areas where flies are present in large numbers, special care must be taken. The housefly breeds  in  excrement  of  human  beings  and  animals  as well as decomposing vegetable and animal matter. Disease organisms are carried on the feet of the fly to food  and  utensils.  The  fly  takes  only  liquid  foods  and regurgitates  to  dissolve  solids.  This  process  causes further  contamination. Extreme care should be taken to prevent access of flies to food utensils, kitchens, and feeding areas. In a permanent camp, all areas that attract flies should be well   screened. It  should  be  standard  operating procedure that the galley be screened before hot food is prepared init. Screens should have a mesh of 18 wires to the inch (18 mesh), which also keeps out mosquitos. In   a   semipermanent   camp,   screening   may   be impractical;  so,  dependence  must  be  placed  upon cleanliness  and  insectproof  containers. When  there  is  no  metal  screening  available, mosquito netting, target cloth, or similar material may be used to flyproof tents, galleys, and storage areas. Leaking  screens  (especially  cracks  around  the  screen door) frequently convert a building into a flytrap; that is, flies can enter the building but are unable to exit. Screen doors should be made to open outward and should  be  in  direct  sunlight,  when  practical. Fly breeding  in  human  excreta  is  particularly  dangerous; thus,  whenever  possible,  latrines  should  be  carefully flyproofed. The substances that may be used to kill the adult fly are  often  extremely  poisonous.  Thus,  the  use  of  these 11-14
