Thanks to an abundance of food, grocery stores are prime targets for numerous pests, including rodents, flies, cockroaches and more. Each one of these pests represents a threat to your store’s brand, and ultimately, your bottom line. No matter what pest challenges you face, Western’s team of experts will help you with prevention, treatment and detailed reporting at every step.

Pest Control in Supermarkets

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.

Common Pest Problems in Grocery Stores

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.

Protecting Pest Entry Points

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.
