Common pests in food and beverage processing environments

Pests can quickly become a problem in food and beverage processing facilities, disrupting operations and jeopardizing food safety.  Common pests in food and beverage environments include:

  • Rodents - Since there is a wide array of food options for mice and rats in food and beverage processing facilities, this industry is highly susceptible to rodent infestations. Rentokil's Multi Rodent Trap Connect is an innovative, wireless electronic monitoring system that provides around-the-clock remote monitoring and protection for your business.
  • Cockroaches - Cockroaches are known by many to be some of the most unsanitary pests around. Rentokil offers bait and exclusion solutions to remove the threat of cockroaches from your facility and keep them from contaminating surfaces and products in your facility.
  • Ants - Ants can get into equipment or finished products, quickly leading to recalls. Rentokil provides a variety of ant solutions for facilities, including dust material treatments, nest and barrier treatments, and perimeter treatments to keep ants from returning.
  • Birds - Food and beverage processing facilities are prone to higher-than-average pest bird activity due to the increased amount of food sources and nesting areas in these buildings. Rentokil offers highly effective, non-toxic bird repellents, including bird spikes, bird netting, and electric bird deterrents that can remove birds safely and humanely from your facility.
  • Stored product pests - Stored product insects can contaminate food products in your facility, causing expensive product waste. Rentokil offers effective treatment options for these destructive pests, including precision spraying, dusting, and grain protectants.
