Fumigation For Pantry Pests In Food Processing Facilities
October 14, 2013
In a commercial food processing environment, pantry pest control should be of utmost importance. These pests can find ways of accessing your food products and can contaminate them with their webs and their bodies. The food pests that can contaminate your products include the Indian meal moth, the saw-toothed grain beetle, the cigarette beetle and the red flour beetle among others. There are many things you can do to prevent these pests from invading your facility; here are some helpful tips for prevention and pest control in Louisville commercial facilities for bothersome pantry pests.
Food pests can enter your facility in a variety of ways. They may enter on their own, through gaps in window or door screens; any holes or gaps in the exterior of your property can allow invading pantry pests into your facility. These insects may also be brought in unknowingly on already infested food products or in boxes brought in from other locations.
Having pantry pests inside your commercial food processing facility is less than ideal. If you don’t currently have an infestation of these pests or other Kentucky bugs, here are a few helpful prevention tips for your commercial facility:
Check the exterior of your facility for gaps or holes that may be allowing pantry pests and other pests inside. Repair torn window and door screens and close up other gaps with caulking as necessary.
Remove garbage from the premises daily; don’t store outdoor dumpsters close to the building.
Keep a perimeter of at least 18” around your building vegetation-free.
Don’t leave palates or storage containers outdoors for any length of time.
Always carefully check products that come into your facility for contamination from pantry pests and other pests.
