Preventing Ant Infestations in Grocery Stores
Ants in a grocery or supermarket environment do more than just send the wrong message to customers about store cleanliness – certain species can also put those customers at risk. Florida Pest Control has developed specialized protocols to combat fire ants and other atypical species, addressing the unique concerns posed by these pests. For fire ants, we’ll put in place an aggressive program to eliminate existing colonies and help deter future fire ant infestations, keeping everyone on your premises safe from harm.
Integrated Bird Management for Grocery Stores & Supermarkets
Building facades, sign lettering, large parking lots with streetlights, and easy access to dumpsters make grocery stores and supermarkets a prime environment for birds. These features create safe nesting and roosting spots and provide food for birds.
Our Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely solves nuisance bird issues through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your store’s environment most susceptible to bird activity.
Fly Control For Grocery Stores & Supermarkets
Flies are vectors of disease, spreading bacteria wherever they land. In grocery stores and supermarkets, the presence of flies can contaminate food in production areas and signal cleanliness issues to customers. Florida Pest Control begins on the exterior of your facility, where large flies breed and develop before making their way inside. A comprehensive fly baiting program targets fly hot spots, such as dumpsters, to kill flies before they have a chance to invade. Inside, we will install insect light traps and perform residual applications to ensure the flies that do find their way inside are eliminated.
Preventing Pantry Pests in Grocery Stores
Grocery stores and supermarkets sell a variety of dried food and grain products, certain areas of your facility may be the target of stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on any number of products, including pet food, birdseed, pasta, dried fruits, chocolate, and flour and grain products, causing contamination issues and making you susceptible to lost business.
For pests such as Indian meal moths and rice weevils, Florida Pest Control has developed targeted service protocols. We will conduct a detailed inspection, focusing on the bakery, pasta, and baking supply aisles, and areas where pet food is stored.
