Importance of Pest Control in Commercial Environment

Importance of Pest Control in Commercial Environment

Pests in a commercial environment are not only a nuisance but also danger to health. Pests can be carriers of a variety of diseases, bacteria, viruses, and a host of other organisms. They can attack food and contaminate food products that could be processed for humans. They also could cause structural damage to the facility, such as chewing of electrical cables. If you have a good Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program implemented it could help prevent these problems.

Finding the right Pest Control Company

Untitled 2Most food production industries are required to have a pest control program in place due to food grade audits such as AIB, ASI, SQF, BRC, or small independent audit companies. These companies set the requirements for not only the pest control, but also other sanitation and production standards. In order to meet these requirements, we provide all of the documentation necessary including electronic device log sheets with a heat map (can view date ranges of 30, 60, 90 days, 1 year, or a custom date range). This information can be a vital tool to help to find deficiencies in the building or other conditions that may be adding to a pest problem. Having this information could draw attention to areas that are being over looked in during normal business operations. Having a quality, hands-on pest control company who understands the ins and outs of this type of industry can be a huge asset to any business and help to keep a fresh set of eyes on your facility. Buckeye Exterminating can do a risk assessment on your facility to help you navigate any audits that you have and to help keep you in compliance. Give us a call or contact us online and talk to our Commercial Service Manager to schedule an in-person meeting to discuss any audit needs that you may have.
