Insect pests are a whole range and may include weevils, several kinds of beetles and moths. Their exact location, however, maybe quite difficult to pinpoint as their sources tend to be difficult to find.
Rodents, especially rats, are also a major concern in many production establishments and storage warehouses – be it food, clothes, paper or furniture. This is because rats have the high tendency to gnaw through everything they can get their teeth on. In food processing areas and warehouses, that could spell disaster owing to contamination and causing very serious health concerns.
Lastly are the birds which may make their nests or homes in factories and warehouses. Their droppings cause huge sanitation problems and have a very negative impact on visitors and employees.
We undertake pest control for the freight stored nearby by factories and in warehouses and depots. Transport vehicles are also susceptible to infestation. Mice and cockroaches have even been found within aircraft on the ground. All areas in which a vehicle is parked in between trips should have a pest prevention programme in place to minimise the risk of infestation and reduce possible down time to a business. In particular, the pests to look out for are rodents and insects.
Stored product insects such as biscuit beetle and rust-red flour beetle can be imported with food commodities, and wood-boring insects can be found in wooden furniture.
Whatever the challenge that is presented Shield Pest Control offers a complete and comprehensive management service as illustrated below.
