Pest control is more than an important thing for manufacturing companies, especially for the food chain. However, it doesn’t exclude other warehouses, though. To ensure the third party audit can’t complain about pest existence, keeping warehouses pest-free is a vital requirement.
In most cases, business owners in Vancouver shift their focus to pest control programs when they notice a pest infestation. It includes prevention and eradication of the present pests instead of removing pests.
Warehouses have multiple entry points. With continual storage of goods, traffic, and repeated use of overhead access points, warehouses are exceptionally at the risk of pest invasion. So, warehouses are one of the recommended places for pest control in Vancouver. Pest infestation may occur to non-food groups too. That’s the reason, regardless of business material, pest control is a must.
THE WAREHOUSE INVADERS
Which species of pests usually seek harborage in Vancouver warehouses?
Whereas almost all pests can create an infestation in your warehouse, let’s talk about the main three categories.
Certainly, the rodent is one of the most common groups of pests to damage warehouse products around the world. With the aptitude and horrible habit of gnawing through any surfaces, rodents rapidly destroy non-food entities, for example, paper, clothes and furniture. And when they get in touch with food items, it results in contaminating the food.
Including ants, bugs, termites, beetles, there are plenty of pests that belong to this group. The main issue with insects is the ability to multiply rapidly. It can pose great damage in little time. So, consider pest control when insects create an infestation to your Vancouver warehouse.
Squirrel and raccoon are an example of wildlife that can create nuisance in your warehouse. They tend to damage the structure and almost any kind of warehouse product. In addition, their excrement can create a great issue.
WHAT A PEST INFESTATION CAN DO
A pest invasion in a warehouse leads to unpleasing results, such as –
