Warehouse Pest Control

It is imperative that all factories, warehouses, processing plants, and storage facilities be kept free of vermin. It’s crucial to keep pests out of these structures so people can keep using them and enjoying their valued contents.

Why is Warehouse Pest Control Important?

Warehouse Pest Control

All manufacturing, processing, and storage organisations need to maintain a pest-free environment in their warehouses and industrial units. These buildings and their valuable contents must be protected against pests. If you have a pest infestation in your warehouse, you might lose hundreds of thousands of pounds in damages, but you could also lose important accreditations and licences like ISO 9001, BRC accreditation, and SALSA if your pest management programme isn’t appropriate.

Insect infestations are common in warehouses because of the large variety of products they carry, many of which come from various manufacturers, distributors, and countries. As a consequence, a warehouse is a perfect environment for pests to thrive.

If infestations in warehouses aren’t prevented or addressed as soon as feasible, they may spread to other storage facilities, distributors, wholesalers, and ultimately customers. This might have a negative impact on your company’s image and reputation.

Pest Control and Food Facilities

There is an increased danger of infestation in facilities that handle food, not only because food attracts insects and rodents, but also because of the possibility of an infestation of stored product insects occurring. Accreditation by the BRC or SALSA, or both, is a requirement for many food firms, and adequate pest management in the warehouse is a prerequisite for both.

Pest Control Checklist

Monitoring and baiting methods have advanced dramatically in the pest management sector over the previous several decades. Despite this, many warehouses have not maintained their pest control techniques up to date. 

  • Has someone been given responsibility for pest management in the warehouse?
  • Has your warehouse and its existing pest control practices been subjected to an audit within the last six months?
  • Do you identify and check in your guests?
  • Are your staff and guests aware of your pest management plan?
  • Are your employees’ dining rooms and lockers (where they keep food) blocked off from the rest of the warehouse by doors?
  • Have you educated your personnel to recognise pest activity in your warehouse and report it?
  • Exists a logbook in which employees may record pest activity?
  • Do you get routine service from a licenced pest control company?

Types of Warehouse Pests

If you don’t have a sufficient preventive rodent management programme in place, a warehouse mouse infestation may be exceptionally tough to eliminate. Here are some helpful hints and information. Warehouses are often erected amid industrial complexes that are surrounded by farms, forested areas, rivers, streams, or railroad tracks. Each of these conditions assures that mice will be present outside buildings for the majority of the year. The magnitude of the favourable circumstances in these regions influences the probability of mouse infestations to a structure.


Pest Risks to Warehouses

There are a number of risks that pests impose on warehouses. These include:

  • Disease transmission
  • Property damage
  • Product and work surface contamination
  • Employee dissatisfaction
  • Significant reputational damage and heightened unfavourable public opinion
  • Prosecution and even business closure

One way to keep mice out of your warehouse is using bait stations with rodenticide bait blocks. Wiring bait blocks inside the station will stop rodents from pulling the bait out. Along a fence line, bait stations are often placed every 75 feet.
