Common pests for food retail establishments

Any pests found in an environment with fresh produce, meat, and other foods should be cause for alarm. Pests found near food items threaten the integrity of your store and the quality of the products being sold. These are a few pests that have been known to plague food retail establishments:

Flies - Fruit flies and other fly species such as houseflies and cluster flies are not only nuisance pests — they can cause major sanitation issues for your food retail establishment. To reduce the risk of contamination and disease spread by flies, Rentokil offers Lumnia, a revolutionary electric insect light trap that provides a truly effective solution to monitor and control flying insects in your facility.

Rodents - Since there is an abundance of food sources in grocery stores and supermarkets, these buildings are highly susceptible to mice and rat infestations. Rentokil's Multi Rodent Trap Connect is an innovative, wireless electronic monitoring system that provides 24/7 remote monitoring and protection for your store.

Cockroaches - Cockroaches are known by many to be some of the most unsanitary pests around. They carry disease-causing microorganisms on their bodies that can contaminate food products and make people sick. Rentokil offers bait and exclusion solutions to remove the threat of cockroaches from your establishment and keep them from returning.

Stored product pests - Stored product insects can contaminate food products in your store, causing expensive product waste. Rentokil offers effective treatment options for these destructive pests including: precision spraying, dusting and grain protectants.

Pest prevention for grocery stores and supermarkets

An essential part of Rentokil’s Integrated Pest Management approach for grocery stores and supermarkets is providing services and products that save you from the headache and high-cost repairs of a pest infestation. We stay one step ahead of pest problems by setting up traps and monitoring devices in and around your stores. Our experts will help you implement the proper prevention methods to keep pest issues from becoming a full blown infestation. Simple steps such as properly storing food products and keeping exterior vegetation well-landscaped will discourage pests from invading.

Rentokil Specialists also work to seal up external access points to limit pests’ ability to enter your properties. We also make sure to replace screens, seal up holes and cracks, and fix defective pipes and drains. All of these steps can minimize the risk of a pest infestation in your store.

Additional grocery and supermarket services

To reduce pests on your property, odor management solutions can neutralize odors near trash rooms, dumpster areas, loading docks, and other areas where odors can be a problem.
