Warehousing & Logistics

Pest prevention and control is now an integral part of sanitation for most warehousing and logistics properties – and for good reason. Contamination of raw materials and products by pest droppings, webbing and skin casts can lead to a loss of goods and revenue. 

Warehouses are particularly susceptible to pests as many insects and rodents will feed on goods and materials if left uncontrolled. 

To meet this special challenge, Rentokil Steritech provides its highly trained professionals with a wealth of technical expertise. These experts have also been thoroughly trained to understand the unique needs of all areas in the warehousing and logistics industry. 

Potential consequences of a pest infestation in the warehousing & logistics industry, include: 

  • - termination of contracts leading to revenue losses;

  • - prosecution for non-compliance with regulatory laws;

  • - customer complaints;

  • - increased costs for delayed treatments; and

  • - loss of customer trust.

Integrated Bird Management for Warehousing & Logistics

Distribution and logistics warehouses and facilities are prone to higher–than–average pest bird activity due to typical building construction and location. Although birds may seem harmless, a single pigeon’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 your building, contaminate products, and create an unsightly mess. 

In fact, in some settings, the mere presence of birds can be cause for audit failure or inspection, leading to shutdowns and lost revenue. The mess they leave behind can also be costly to clean up. 

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 distribution and logistics environment most susceptible to bird activity.

Stored Product Insects For Distribution & Logistics

Facilities that handle dried foods and grains can be the target of stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on any number of products, including pet food, birdseed, 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, warehouse beetles, and red and confused flour beetles, Rentokil Steritech has developed targeted service protocols. Your dedicated technician will conduct detailed inspections, focusing on production and storage areas. We will 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 dedicated technician 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 facility.
