Don’t let pests disrupt your operation
Factories, warehouses, and storage facilities are the perfect place for pests - lots of nooks and crannies and hard to reach spaces where rodents, birds, and other pests can make their homes. If you have a cafeteria or any food storage, that’s an additional incentive for pest incursions.
Pests not only cause a health hazard for your staff, transmitting and spreading disease, they also contaminate or destroy goods and equipment. Rodents even cause fires by chewing through wiring and cabling, putting your entire building at risk.
Common Pests in Industrial Facilities
Rodents are the most prevalent pest in industrial environments, sneaking in through the tiniest gap and quickly setting up home. Rats and mice breed quickly and extensively, making the problem escalate quickly. Their chewing causes damage while their waste can contaminate stock and cause health issues for staff.
Warehouses and factories often have issues with birds roosting and leaving damaging and unhygienic droppings over equipment, stock, and storage areas. With the height of many buildings, tackling bird problems can be challenging.
Cafeterias and food areas may have issues with cockroaches, flies, ants, and other insects. Flies and cockroaches in particular are carriers of disease and can cause significant health issues for your staff if not kept under control.

In general, industrial facilities require a tailored and targeted approach to pest control. There is no one size fits all solution, especially when taking into account the size and location of industrial buildings.
