Why you need pest control for logistics
The movement of goods through your warehouse or storage facility increases the risk of pest infestation. Biosecurity officers screen goods for pests arriving from overseas. But after the goods leave the wharf or airport, local pests can easily hitchhike to your premises. Pests can set up home on the container, packaging or in your goods.
Storage facilities are particularly vulnerable to pest infestation. Different goods, such as grains, fertilisers and organic material can carry a variety of pests. Doors are often open in storage areas. So birds, rodents and cockroaches can easily enter.
Cardboard boxes and pallets can provide nesting for vermin. Insects can also travel from across the country to your loading dock on the truck.
Cars, machinery, tyres and other break bulk cargo can harbour insects, transporting them to your storage facility.
Why pest control is essential for manufacturing
Not only can pests quickly disrupt your supply chain, but insurance often won’t cover the loss of goods due to insect damage. Rodents, cockroaches and birds can cause the following problems.
- Damage product packaging
- Cause customer rejection
- Endanger your employees
- Threaten your reputation
- Damage goods
- Cause loss of profits
Cockroaches are a common pest in storage facilities
Cockroaches are attracted to damp, unclean areas. Our technicians have found wet cardboard packaging from flooding and rain attracts cockroaches.
Although these pests are shy, they’re visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation can invade warehouses and storage facilities, even if you don’t store food. As these areas are open, our technicians will treat inside your facility and the perimeter.
Our technician may suggest drying damp areas and removing wet packaging to prevent further infestation.
Birds are a pest in warehouses
Birds can be a problem in warehouse rafters. They can roost and nest on beams, leaving droppings on goods.
We have safe and effective bird deterrents that stop birds from nesting in your warehouse.
Stored product pests nesting in food storage containers
Pests in stored products like grains and cereals cause a lot of trouble and expense in the goods supply chain. Making sure that food stays safe and free from contamination involves protecting goods from the pests that would eat them. In addition to eating the stored products, they can cause damage to storage facilities and contaminate the rest of the stored food.
We have a range of methods to eliminate and prevent stored product pests, ensuring minimal disruption to your business.
Rats and mice are common pests in manufacturing and logistic industries
Another pest we find around loading docks, skip bins and storage rooms is rodents. Rats and mice spread diseases and increase very quickly in number. SMART Digital Pest Control can treat these pests discreetly, proactively and safely.
