Birds, cockroaches, rodents and flies are common invaders of pharmaceutical facilities. These pests can contaminate products and risk consumer safety. Western’s Integrated Pest Management solutions help protect your company’s integrity—and your bottom line.

Pest Control in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pharmaceutical facilities are at risk of exposure and infestation from various pests, so integrated pest management is an important step to protecting your business and reputation. Pests can damage and contaminate products, storage rooms, and laboratory areas. However, the experts at Western Pest Services specialize in creating plans to prevent and mitigate these issues.

Common Pharmaceutical Pests

Mice and rats often invade pharmaceutical facilities and can cause several different problems. These rodents enter commercial buildings through small holes, cracks in foundations, and gaps around doors or windows. Both mice and rats can contaminate products and equipment with their fur, saliva, and waste. Rodents can also chew through wiring causing fire hazards and destroy containers and materials causing lost profits.

Cockroaches are common in the Mid-Atlantic region. These pests infiltrate pharmaceutical warehouses and facilities through places like floor drains and tend to hide in warm, damp areas. Cockroaches spread disease-causing bacteria on any surface they touch, making them harmful to pharmacy employees and customers alike.

Birds also pose a health hazard to your commercial pharmaceutical facility. Bird droppings can contain Salmonella bacteria, which can make workers ill and contaminate products. These flying pests also build nests that can clog drainpipes or block crucial ventilation systems. Additionally, bird feces defaces the sides of buildings and parking lots, which is unsightly for visitors and clients.

Entry & Prevention

Many pests in the Mid-Atlantic region enter pharmaceutical facilities through small holes, open doors or windows, and cracks in the building foundations to find food, shelter, and warmth. Western Pest Services offers pest control solutions for pharmaceutical businesses to help keep your company running smoothly and your reputation intact.
