Integrated Bird Management for Food Processing Facilities
Large buildings with safe areas to roost and potential food sources make food processing facilities attractive environments for birds. And while birds may seem harmless, their droppings and feathers can carry and transmit over 60 diseases. Florida Pest Control’s Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely solves nuisance bird issues through targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your food processing environment most susceptible to bird activity.
Preventing Flies in Food Processing Facilities
For food processors, flies are more than a nuisance, they are a threat to public health and serious business risk. Flies spread germs wherever they land, transmitting dangerous bacteria such as Shigella, Salmonella, and E. coli and contaminating products and production surfaces. Because of this, auditors are especially strict on fly issues, and their presence can result in costly production shutdowns, fines, and loss of business.
Florida Pest Control begins on the exterior of your facility with a detailed environmental study to determine your facility’s unique fly pressures. Your specialist will institute a comprehensive fly baiting program to target fly hot spots, such as dumpster areas, to kill flies before they have a chance to invade your facility. With Florida Pest Control, you’ll have a complete solution that complements your existing pest prevention programs and keeps your facility audit-ready at all times.
Pantry Pest Control For Food Processing Facilities
Facilities that handle dried foods and grains can be the target of stored products or pantry pest infestations.

Your service specialist will conduct a detailed inspection, focusing on production and storage areas. In addition, we will work with your staff to give them the right tools to prevent issues from recurring, building a solid defense against stored product insects at your facility.
