Warehouses are busy buildings with many moving parts and a host of employees all upholding different roles. Due to this it is very easy for pests to enter a warehouse undetected, establish themselves and then cause day-to-day problems for stock and staff alike. This is where Direct Pest enters with our warehouse pest control service that will remove all pests in your warehouse and protect the stock from damage.

The most common pests that are found in a UK warehouse environment are rodents, birds, cockroaches and wasps, causing problems for staff or damage to stock and the premises itself. Rodents, such as rats and mice, will use any means possible when gaining entry to a warehouse, their ability to chew through many different materials being a key part of this.
By creating doorways for themselves this will incur damage to the structure of the warehouse that, if left unchecked, can then grow into being a larger issue over time. As well as this, rodents are capable of carrying disease, when they come into contact with stock that is handled by employees it can cause the transmission of these diseases to workers and generate a substantial loss of company earnings.
Birds are drawn to warehouses like a moth to a flame. Warehouses are typically large, high-ceilinged buildings with more than one large doorway. During winter particularly, birds will be seeking out suitable places for nesting. That is why in a warehouse birds have many options of finding spaces on beams and within rafters where they will be able to nest undisturbed.
Droppings, feathers and nesting materials can all damage stock, leading to a damage in reputation to, or can transmit illnesses to the workforce and lead to health issues.
The nature of a warehouse is that there will be a high turnover of stock and stock handling. Depending on what specifically your business entails, it could mean that your company receives regular deliveries from foreign countries. Unfortunately, it is these deliveries that can be the transport for cockroaches to envelop themselves and cross the pond to take up residence in your company’s warehouse.
Capable of entering tiny gaps, cracks and crevices, it is easy not to notice a stowaway cockroach. Although, with their rapid reproduction, it is easy for cockroaches to infest large quantities of stock, causing damage and potentially great monetary losses.
Wasps and flies, although not as problematic as some of the other pests in warehouses, can still cause ongoing problems. It is possible that wasps and flies could be enticed in the door by employees’ sugary drinks, stored food stock depending on what your business handles, or looking for shelter from cold and wet conditions.
Therefore, as they multiply it will be very disruptive to your workforce and their morale and can also cause damage to stored products. Not only this, but flies can also transmit disease or illness between surfaces too, leading to illness and a drop in productivity. Don’t allow this to come to pass and protect your and your staff’s health and safety.
