Insects, Birds and Rodents pest control in the food industry
Pest infestations can occur at many different points in the food supply chain. Your manufacturing plant can attract pests via heating, lighting and odours and provide them with shelter and safety from predators.
At Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions we are specialists in the identification and pest control of any Stored Product Insects (SPIs) such as beetles, weevils, moths and mites. These get into foodstuffs and raw materials and can spoil your finished product.
As food processing pest control experts, we also eliminate any pests which might be attracted to your food waste, including birds like gulls. Our food industry pest control expert can install netting or spikes to discourage them from nesting, and also clean up their droppings, which carry germs as well as looking unsightly.
Rats and mice can create issues by shedding fur or chewing through wood and wiring, and many food processing companies have reported cases of machinery being damaged by rodents. Rats are particularly destructive, as they often eat through packaging to get to the food inside. They also carry other parasites such as ticks and fleas, while their droppings and urine can easily spread disease around the food production floor.
To bring rodents under control our food processing pest control professionals use anti-coagulant baits to remove them and we make several visits to ensure they do not return.
This means that when you use our food processing pest control services you can be sure we follow industry-recognised best practices which have been developed by retailers, manufacturers and other pest control in food industry experts. We also make sure your business is fully compliant with all the legislation laid down by the Food Standards Agency and European standards.
