Professional pest control, prevention, and management is now a vital part of sanitation for most warehousing and logistics properties – and rightly so. Due to their abundance of stored products, warehouses are particularly susceptible to pests, as many insects and rodents will feed on goods and materials if left uncontrolled. Certain pests can also contaminate raw materials and products with their droppings, webbing, and skin casts, leading to a loss of goods and revenue. Because controlling pests on a large scale can be overwhelming on your own, it’s important to invest in professional warehouses & industrial pest control services.
Florida Pest Control’s highly-trained professionals are equipped with a wealth of technical expertise to meet the challenges these complex structures pose. Our experts have also been educated on the unique needs of all areas in the warehousing and logistics industry.
The Importance of Industrial Pest Control
Getting pest control for your warehouse is crucial for the safety of your staff, property, reputation, and daily operations. Potential consequences of a pest infestation in the warehousing & logistics industry include:
- Cancellation of contracts leading to loss of revenue
- Penalization for non-compliance with regulatory laws
- Customer complaints and loss of trust
- Increased costs for delayed treatments
Disinfection for Warehouses

Integrated Bird Management for Warehousing & Logistics
Distribution and logistics warehouses and facilities have a higher likelihood of pest bird activity due to their specific building construction and location. Although birds may seem innocent, a single pigeon’s droppings can carry and transmit over 60 diseases. In some cases, just a sighting of birds can be a cause for audit failure or inspection, leading to shutdowns and lost revenue. The mess they leave behind can also be costly to clean up.
Florida Pest Control’s Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely removes bird infestations through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your distribution and logistics environment that are most susceptible to bird activity.
Pantry Pests in Warehouses
Facilities that have an abundance of dried foods and grains can be a thriving environment for stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on a variety of products, including pet food, birdseed, dried fruits, chocolate, and flour and grain products, causing contamination issues and making you susceptible to lost business.
Your dedicated Florida Pest Control specialist will conduct detailed inspections, focusing on production and storage areas. We will physically remove any infestations we locate, apply residual products and insect growth regulators to provide lasting protection, and install special pheromone monitors to notify us of the potential for new activity. Additionally, your dedicated specialist will spend time educating your staff on how to prevent issues from recurring, building an impenetrable defense against stored product insects at your facility.

Documentation of a proactive pest management program is critical in a warehousing and logistics environment. Our pest management programming has been specifically designed to comply with the various third-party audit requirements and regulatory audits such as FDA and USDA.
