Food Processing Pest Prevention

Together in our partnership, we can mitigate pest activity by focusing on good sanitation practices by removing sources that attract pests such as, food, water, and structural access. Many insects and rodents enter structures from the exterior through structural deficiencies. Thorough and complete inspections on every regular service visit ensure that these areas are revealed and communicated for correction. Mechanical Trapping Devices (MTDs) are used as a preventative control measure and as a monitoring device to intercept pests as they enter and utilized for information to prepare a corrective action plan.

Stored Product Pests (SPPs) are critical pests that infest and contaminate food products such as grains, cereals, spices and bStored Product Pestaked goods. The presence of SPPs within your operation could lead to poor audit scores and contaminated product increasing your expenses. According to our data, the five most encountered stored product pests in food plants are: Indian Meal Moths, Cigarette Beetles, Warehouse Beetles, Confused Flour Beetles and Red Flour Beetles.

Certech will customize a stored product prevention program utilizing the latest technological advances to ensure that the integrity of your products is protected which will minimize downtime and reduce your expenses.
