Whether you operate an assembly-line factory or manage a warehouse, spacious facilities with multiple entry points are an open invitation to pests. Insects, rodents, and other wildlife often damage products, create potential health hazards, and disrupt productivity. To combat these issues, Western Pest Services offers integrated pest management programs specific to the manufacturing industry.
When birds fly into manufacturing plants and distribution centers, these avian pests cause damage and present health hazards for factory and warehouse workers. Sparrows, pigeons, and starlings roost in rafters and build messy nests in building cavities such as ventilation shafts, pipes, and chimneys. Their corrosive waste can also harm roofing and machinery as well as merchandise.
Nuisance birds can carry pathogens that affect humans, too. For example, cleaning up dried bird waste is dangerous for warehouse workers, as inhaling dust particles from infected droppings can transmit histoplasmosis. Bird exclusion and pest control solutions for businesses like warehouses and factories help prevent health risks as well as product contamination due to bird waste.
Rats are another serious issue in the warehouse and manufacturing industry. Norway rats thrive throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. These rodents often sneak into factories and storage facilities in search of food, water, and shelter. Norway rats gnaw through packaging, contaminate products and machines with urine and droppings, and can cause fire hazards by chewing through electrical wiring.
Multiple pest entry points, high, hard-to-reach ceilings, warm interiors, and abundant hiding places make manufacturing plants and warehouses vulnerable to infestations. Western Pest Services uses comprehensive commercial pest control strategies to help mitigate risks to warehouse or manufacturing employees and prevent product damage.
“They make sure our warehouse stays clean. If we ever have an emergency they come out right away, the employees are very nice and friendly. Great company!”
