Core Pests for Grocery & Supermarkets

Your commitment to food quality and safety is unmatched. Don't let pests jeopardize your hard work. Rentokil Steritech's pest prevention program is the perfect complement for organizations with high levels of consumer awareness and strict quality assurance programs, just like your stores. Our core program targets pests most likely to infest grocery stores: cockroaches, common ants, mice, and rats.

Based on a detailed evaluation of your facility, Rentokil Steritech will design a program to meet your needs, taking into account factors such as structural integrity, environmental pest pressures, and potential for activity. Receiving, loading docks, produce, bakery, and other areas of likely activity are all included in our detailed service program.

Atypical Ants for Grocery & Supermarkets

Ants in a grocery or supermarket environment do more than just send the wrong message to customers about store cleanliness – certain species can also put those customers at risk. Fire ants can inflict painful stings and swarm when disturbed, attacks that can be fatal to small children or the elderly. 

Rentokil Steritech has developed specialized protocols to combat fire ants and other atypical species, addressing the unique concerns posed by these pests. For fire ants, we'll put in place an aggressive program to eliminate existing colonies and help deter future fire ant infestations, keeping everyone on your premises safe from harm.

Integrated Bird Management for Grocery & Supermarkets

Building facades, sign lettering, large parking lots with streetlights, and easy access to dumpsters make grocery stores and supermarkets a prime environment for birds. These features create safe nesting and roosting spots and provide food for birds. And while they may seem harmless, a single bird's droppings and feathers can carry and transmit over 60 diseases. 

The presence of birds is a serious health and safety concern – they can compromise air quality, damage equipment and structures, and create an unsightly mess. 

Rentokil Steritech's Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely solves nuisance bird issues through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your store's environment most susceptible to bird activity

Occasional Invaders for Grocery & Supermarkets

Certain pests can create issues for grocery stores and supermarkets based on season, geography, or environment. This group of occasional invader pests, which includes stink bugs and spiders, although less common, can give health-conscious customers the impression that a store's sanitation isn't up to par. 

Using our approach, Rentokil Steritech has designed specialized protocols to service for occasional invaders, focusing on the specific pests' unique biology and behavioral traits to treat and eliminate them. Beginning with a detailed inspection both on the exterior and interior, Rentokil Steritech will devise a customized program to address the occasional invader concern at your store – keeping your establishment free of pests and your brand reputation intact.

Flies for Grocery & Supermarkets

Flies are vectors of disease, spreading bacteria wherever they land. In grocery stores and supermarkets, the presence of flies can contaminate food in production areas and signal cleanliness issues to customers. 

Rentokil Steritech begins on the exterior of your facility, where large flies breed and develop before making their way inside. A comprehensive fly baiting program targets fly hot spots, such as dumpsters, to kill flies before they have a chance to invade. Inside, we will install appropriate insect light traps and perform residual applications to ensure that flies that do find their way inside are eliminated. This monthly service provides multiple levels of protection to ensure that your store and your customers are safe from harm.

Stored Product Insects for Grocery & Supermarkets

Because grocery stores and supermarkets sell a range of dried food and grain products, certain areas of your facility may be the target of stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on any number of products, including pet food, birdseed, pasta, dried fruits, chocolate, and flour and grain products, causing contamination issues and making you susceptible to lost business. 

To address stored product insect issues such as Indian meal moths and rice weevils, Rentokil Steritech has developed targeted service protocols. Your Service Specialist will conduct a detailed inspection, focusing on the bakery, pasta, and baking supply aisles, and areas where pet food is stored. Then, we'll physically remove any infestations we uncover, apply residual products and insect growth regulators to provide lasting protection, and install special pheromone monitors to alert us to the potential for new activity. 

In addition, your Service Specialist will work with your staff to educate them on how to prevent issues from recurring, building an impervious defense against stored product insects at your store.
