Common Pests in Food Processing Plants & FacilitiesIt’s clear why food processing facilities are so attractive to pests: they provide ample sources of food and shelter! While the food industry can certainly be affected by any type of pest problem, there are a few types of pests that tend to be the most likely perpetrators of an infestation in this industry. If any one of these pests are found, inspectors can quickly halt operations. Some of the most common pests in food processing plants and warehouses include:
- Pantry pests
Food Processing Facility Pest Control Safety ConcernsPests in food processing plants, warehouses, and other facilities don’t only compromise businesses—they pose a serious health risk. When it comes to operating a successful food processing facility or distribution center, keeping a pest-free environment is always a top priority. Several of the health safety concerns of pests in the food distribution industry include:
- Some pests are capable of spreading food-borne illnesses or diseases.
- Pests can contaminate food at any stage of production, which can lead to infected food.
- Severe damage is occasionally inflicted upon buildings, wiring, fixtures, and machinery.
- Food contaminated by pests inside a facility can be transported out during delivery before the problem is discovered.
