Board Certified Entomologists
As a grocery professional, there’s nothing more important than the safety and satisfaction of your customers. Just one pest sighting can turn a lifelong shopper into a lost cause and, with social media, can severely harm a brand. That’s why our team includes Board Certified Entomologists and licensed and certified technicians dedicated to identifying pest issues – including where they may be coming in. We have bioremediation services that can help take care of German cockroaches and several kinds of flies that can breed and live in the grime. Western provides thorough reporting, complete with records of pest activity, pesticide use, and in-store conditions.
And we’re about more than just pest control. We can provide a full disinfecting and sanitizing service, Western PurClean™. We use a product rated “no rinse required on food contact surfaces,” category D2, by NSF International and will take care of several virus and bacteria. We even have scenting services to help in garbage areas as well as employ many different kinds of bird mitigation strategies . All of that while keeping treatment costs.
Grocery stores are at high risk for insect and rodent infestations, which is why an integrated pest management program is essential. Mice, cockroaches, and other pests can contaminate dry goods and produce and can even spread harmful bacteria. When customers spot droppings on shelves or cast-off skins in packaging, poor reviews can damage your store’s reputation as well as your bottom line.
In supermarkets, fruit flies are more than just an annoyance. These tiny flying insects gravitate toward perishables like fresh fruit and vegetables, usually targeting produce that has reached peak ripeness. Fruit flies reproduce quickly, requiring fast action before an infestation takes hold.
Certain species of beetles are a threat to dry goods in your grocery store’s pantry section. These omnivorous insects feed on everything from grain products to flour, seeds, and dried meats. If left unchecked, a beetle infestation can quickly contaminate your supermarket’s merchandise.
Rats and mice are a major headache for the grocery industry. Rodents will chew on everything from fresh produce to packaging and electrical wires. In addition, rats and mice can contaminate food with their waste, and their urine, saliva, and dander can trigger allergic reactions in store patrons and staff.
Commercial pest control solutions for businesses in the grocery industry include safeguarding loading areas, vehicles, stockrooms, and other unsecured areas where pests can slip inside undetected. Also, rodents, insects, and spiders may hide inside fresh produce boxes, damaging your inventory and spreading to other areas of your supermarket or even to your customers.
“I have had nothing but positive experiences with Western. They are responsive, flexible, and attentive. I came to know of Western through my work, who utilizes Western for our pest control contracts. I have found them to be a great choice for both business and residential settings. All of the technicians I’ve worked with have been great. I would definitely recommend them.”
