||As a follow-up to preventive measures (semi-closed cycles, gloves, masks, overalls and sunglasses) implemented after previous reports of sensitization, workers employed in insect breeding were monitored through allergy and respiratory function tests. A decrease in skin sensitization for insects and a decrease in allergic conditions (rhinoconjunctivitis and asthma) were found. The application of preventive measures is vindicated.
