Common factory Pests

Here are the most common pests we see in factories, manufacturing plants and food processing facilities along with signs to watch for:

  • Rodents: Rat and mouse populations can grow quickly and lead to significant damage and contamination. Rodents are notorious disease vectors that will chew nearly anything including electrical cords, boxes and building materials. Look for rice-shaped droppings, nests, holes in walls and grease trails. 
  • Flies: These buzzing nuisances congregate around damp areas like sinks and floor drains. They can contaminate food items and can be difficult to manage. Watch for clouds of insects and maggots, especially around garbage containers, ejector pumps and gray or brown water pipes. 
  • Stored Product Pests: Also known as pantry pests, insects like moths, beetles and weevils are common invaders in the manufacturing world. They burrow into dried food goods and leave worm-like larvae. Look for holes in packaging and check food products for insects, larvae and webbing.
  • Cockroaches: Tenacious and hungry, cockroaches will follow food trails wherever they can. They are fond of cardboard boxes and will slip through the narrowest of crevices. Monitor dark, damp areas for eggs, nymphs and strange, musty odors.
  • Birds: Once they get in, birds can be difficult to remove and are a sanitation nightmare. Call a professional pest control company to identify points of entry or provide netting to keep them out. Look for nests, droppings and contaminated products.
