Shield Pest Control

Factory and Warehouse Pest Control

Pests can be a big problem for Factories and Warehouses

Factories, warehouses and depots are potentially a huge source of pest activity. Unfortunately, the production and storage of a variety of goods together, especially foodstuffs from multiple sources can frequently lead to some form of pest infestation and contamination. This is often irreversible and therefore very costly. The result of cross-contamination by pests in these locations can be the transportation of insects or rodents to multiple end users, such as factories, shops or members of the public. Shield can oversee the essential task of inspecting, proactively monitoring and ultimately controlling any pest problems in production areas, warehouses and depots.

Several categories of pests may be found in warehouses and industrial units, but the common types of warehouse pest control services can be grouped into three: birds, insects and rodents.

Whatever the challenge that is presented Shield Pest Control offers a complete and comprehensive management service as illustrated below.

Insect pests are a whole range and may include weevils, several kinds of beetles and moths. Their exact location, however, may be quite difficult to pinpoint as their sources tend to be hard 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 into. In food processing areas and warehouses, that could spell disaster owing to contamination and causing very serious health concerns.


Finally, 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.

Freight & Transports

We undertake pest control for the freight stored nearby 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.
