Flying Insect Control for Warehouses and Distribution Centers
The risk of food contamination by various flying insects, especially flies, is extremely high. Fruit flies, moths and stinging insects such as bees, wasps and hornets can not only make the work environment unconformable but these insects can create unhealthy conditions for the products stored there and your employees.
Commercial Rodent Control In Warehouses and Distribution Centers
Mice and rats carry various bacterial and viral pathogens that are a hazard to workers and products stored in the area causing more than a couple hazards for the warehousing and distribution industry. The signs can be clear if you know what to look for. Feces and urine, or the smell of urine is a common sign along with gnawing, damage to merchandise by feeding and shredded materials gathered for nesting of rodents.
Brown Exterminating will inspect and suggest structural weaknesses and sealing off access points where rodents may gain access. We will implement baiting and monitoring stations to determine problem areas and to provide early detection of infestations. Doing so will enable us to take control measures to a specific problem area before it becomes a larger issue within the warehouse or distribution center.
Commercial Pest Control For Stored Product Pests
Warehouses and distribution centers which store and distribute food or textiles can attract or acquire a long list of pests from the outside or by being shipped in with other foods or textiles. Pests ranging from rodents and textile moths to every kind of beetle imaginable that feed on everything from grain to fur. These pests, as their population grow, will cause loss from creating damaged goods in which they fed on or by the contamination of goods from feces, urine, shed skins and webbing. Also it is typical of a pest infestation to create conditions that are good to allow mold to grow by supplying higher humidity and heat to the environment. A quick and effective Integrated Pest Management Program will prevent these issues from becoming problems.
Commercial Control of Crawling Insects; Cockroaches, Ants, Beetles, Spiders etc.
Cockroaches, ants, crickets, beetles, spiders, woodlice, earwigs and dust mites who find your warehouses a comfortable place to live and breed almost always cause a threat to your warehousing and distribution operation. If you store raw food material or materials some insects consider food your chances of having an issue increase. This is not because they are always attracted to the materials in your warehouse but may have arrived in the materials you are storing, putting the other stored product at risk.
