Warehouses are easy targets for pests.
Pests are known to spread diseases, make employees sick, turn warehouses into unsafe workplaces, damage huge volumes of inventory and stop operations for several days and even weeks. This can cost your business hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Pest control is more challenging in a warehousing environment due to the size of warehouse facilities and their abundant corners, cracks and crannies where pests can hide and multiply.
Functioning without a carefully planned pest control programme in place puts the business at several risks with serious implications.
A professional pest control company not only helps you address your pest problems after they arise but also helps you in preventing many of them.
Why Warehouses need Regular Pest Control
The adage “prevention is better than cure” stands true in the context of pest control for warehouses.
One of the biggest business risks of not having a professional pest control programme in place is the damage pests like rodents can cause to machines or equipment and the loss of productivity until they are restored. Goods affected or contaminated by pests could lead to consumer complaints, stock rejections and even stock recalls.
Common Pests in Warehouses
Rodents can be carriers of dangerous diseases like salmonella, Weil’s disease and hantavirus while cockroaches carry diseases and disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Birds pose a serious health and safety concern. They can compromise air quality, damage equipment and contaminate products and make an unsightly mess.
The presence of any of these pests poses serious health hazards especially if your warehouse is used to store food products. As the health hazard to end-consumers is enormous, it may lead to legal action, penalties or closure of the facility.
