(a)  Effective measures shall be taken to keep flies, rodents, and other vermin out of the food service areas and permanent sleeping quarters, and to prevent their breeding or presence on the premises.  Unless flies or other flying insects are absent from the immediate vicinity of the camp, all openings to the outer air of food service areas and sleeping quarters shall be effectively protected against the entrance of such insects by self‑closing doors, closed windows, 16‑inch mesh or finer screening, controlled air currents, or other effective means.
