Pest control for warehousing and 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 provides its Specialists 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
  • Loss of customer trust

Common pests in warehousing and logistics

Some of the most frequent pest concerns in this industry are:

Birds - Distribution and logistics facilities are prone to higher-than-average pest bird activity due to typical building construction and location. Rentokil offers highly effective, non-toxic bird repellents such as bird spikes, bird netting and electric bird deterrents that can remove birds safely and humanely from your property.

Flies - Fruit flies and other fly species such as houseflies and cluster flies are not only bothersome pests but they can cause unsanitary conditions for your warehousing facility. To reduce the risk of contamination and disease spread by flies, Rentokil offers Lumnia, an innovative electric insect light trap that provides a truly effective solution to monitor and control flying insects in your warehousing facility.

Mice and rats - Warehouses provide year-round food, water and shelter for rodents like mice and rats. Additionally, with shipments going in and out of your facility every day, your facility makes an easy target for these intruders. Rentokil offers internet-connected rodent monitoring devices that use leading sensor technology to keep watch over your facility all day, every day.

Stored product pests - Stored product insects can compromise the integrity of the products in your warehousing facility, leading to costly downtime. Rentokil offers specialized treatment options for these destructive pests including: precision spraying, dusting and grain protectants. 

Fabric pests - These textile pests can cause serious damage to stored products made from natural fibers. Rentokil offers non-chemical treatments, specialized heat treatment and traditional insecticidal treatments to stop a fabric pest infestation from becoming destructive to your facility.
