Supermarket pest control is an integral part of keeping successful food retail outlets, grocery stores and supermarkets functioning smoothly. This is because stored food pests are drawn to supermarkets in droves by the alluring food stored inside. Thankfully, with our effective pest control in supermarket solutions, we can get those problem pests to “checkout” of your business and stay out.
Whether it is a small independent shop such as a corner shop or all the way up to a multi-site superstore chain it is well within our capabilities. Our pest specialists handle it all and can safely and discreetly remove minute pests or even the largest infestations.
Through our use of cutting-edge technology such as thermographic FLIR cameras, it won’t take long to locate sneaky pests that have taken up residence within ductwork or that have burrowed their way into hard to identify areas. It is also what makes our pest control in food businesses so successful as we are one of the only pest control companies in the UK to utilise this fantastic equipment.
The most common food pests to be found in supermarkets are rodents, wasps, cockroaches and birds. Rodents are the most common food pest because they are particularly resourceful at finding ways of gaining entry to a property. This means that they are likely causing damage to the building itself too, and they will also jump at any opportunity of easy access to a food source.
Rodents are also capable of carrying harmful illnesses to humans that, if transferred across to food, can cause substantial health issues. Trust our specialists to lead the rodents out and away from the supermarkets as if they were the pied piper.
After rodents, it is wasps and flies that are prevalent and are enticed by the aromas of sugary liquids or waste sources. Due to their rapid breeding cycle, they can quickly take over an area with access to food or rubbish containers and cause loss of stock from infestation, but not with our fly control they can’t!
House flies, drain flies and flesh flies are all considered “filth flies” because they feed on faecal matter and rubbish while also moving between clean areas, opening the door to the possibility of disease transmission. Your food safety is paramount to us when we work to stop them being able to contaminate food and to keep your shop free of pests. Beat those wasps and flies into a hasty retreat with our exceptional pest control in food industry service.
Although the cockroaches that are native to the UK are typically found in dry, sun-warmed outdoor locations they are still a prevalent stored product pest. Due to their small size and ability to hide in tight spaces, it can be possible for them to have been transported with deliveries into storage areas as a stored food pest. The German, American and Oriental cockroach are likely to be unfortunately transported in with deliveries of food and can then hide in shelving, cracks and crevices, or even find their way into machinery or equipment.
Therefore, this can make them exceedingly difficult to deal with and if they transmit carried diseases can spell a significant health issue. Win the game of hide and seek with supermarket pest control that will get them out and keep them out.
Birds, especially pigeons, can also cause sizeable issues towards your reputable supermarket and its continuing business success. They are attracted by the building’s warmth in their pursuit of finding a safe nesting space. This means that they have the potential to cause damage to the building when gaining entry and their droppings, feathers and nesting materials can potentially infect food, food products and incoming stock that they come into contact with.
Not only are the birds an issue themselves but there is also the possibility of them being carriers for bird mites, fleas or possibly beetles too which then leads to further problems. Luckily, our pest control in food premises will have them taking flight from your supermarket in no time at all.
