Warehouse Pest Control
How We Can Help
Our shipping warehouse pest control services are available in the ports of Felixstowe, Harwich, Ipswich, Tilbury, and the London Gateway, the up-and-coming area of Thurrock and all DP World ports. We use discreet, unmarked vans so you will not suffer any damage to your reputation.
Stored Product Insects
SPIs damage foodstuffs and other raw materials and products typically stored in warehouses. The insects can be brought in with deliveries and make their homes in packing cupboards and shelves. They then lay eggs and larvae which can contaminate items which have been stored in the warehouse. Foodstuffs including nuts, flour, rice, grain and pasta are among the products most vulnerable to attack, but stored carpets and textiles, tobacco and wooden items can also be affected.
The warehouse pest control experts at Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions can identify and eliminate all types of SPI. Our individually-tailored warehouse pest control treatments will depend on the type and severity of infestation your warehouse is suffering from.
Warehouse Fumigation Services
The most common SPIs native to Essex and Suffolk are various types of beetles, moths, mites and weevils. However, because your warehouse is likely to contain cargo brought in from other countries, it could also be vulnerable to attack by non-native species too.
Where appropriate, we can warehouse fumigation services. Certain types of foodstuffs and basic commodities are suitable for this sort of pest treatment. We use phosphine gas, under strictly controlled conditions, to ensure the goods are not cross-contaminated. The treatment is carried out in a secure location, well away from any buildings.
All of our staff who carry out warehouse fumigation and venting are fully qualified, and we also issue a Clearance Certificate once the work has been completed. Our experienced warehouse pest control team hold the relevant warehouse fumigation qualifications issued by the British Pest Control Association.
Pest Control for Warehouses
Warehouses can make an ideal breeding ground for other pests too. Cockroaches can thrive in any cracks and crevices. They will eat just about anything and spread bacteria and diseases including salmonella, gastroenteritis and typhoid.
Cockroach pest control for warehouses
At Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions we have a highly effective method of cockroach pest control for warehouses. We carry out a pest inspection of your warehouse as part of our first visit and we will aim to treat the pest problem at the same time. We use baits or residual insecticides to eradicate them.
Bird pest control for warehouses
Birds come in and out of shipping warehouses all the time; they may be attracted to the high ceilings, rafters and open beams found in many warehouses. Like cockroaches, their droppings are a health hazard which can also spoil products and contaminate goods.
Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions shipping warehouse pest control technicians will discuss the various options available to you after they have carried out a survey. The pest control advice we give regarding your options will depend on the latest legislation and the type of bird which is causing you a problem, as the species which are protected by law varies from year to year.
We realise that pest prevention is better than pest extermination, so we will give pest control advice on how to bird-proof your warehouse. Nest removal and netting or spikes are among of the options we will discuss with you. A controlled cull of the birds may sometimes be necessary.
Rat pest control for warehouses
Rats and mice can easily get into warehouses through small cracks. As well as carrying diseases, they can also gnaw through equipment, packaging and wiring. Our rodent pest control methods for warehouses typically involve putting down anti-coagulant baits, and we also provide bespoke ongoing pest control contracts to ensure they have been fully eradicated.
There are stringent rules and regulations covering pest control for warehouses, particularly where the stored items will be used in the foodstuff industry and where any incoming pests could damage crops, human health and other areas of the economy. At Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions we comply with all the relevant EU General Food Law regulations and the legislation relating to pests currently of concern.
Our experienced team of technicians also comply with the requirements of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, so any treatments we use will not be harmful to employees.
