With shipments constantly moving in and out of packing and distribution centers, warehouses or storages, the risk of letting in rodent runs high. Pest prevention in this industry is important to keep operations focused on maximizing profits, rather than how to get rid of rodents.
Warehouses or storages storing foodstuffs are particularly vulnerable to infestation. They face a high risk of contamination and damage caused by rats and mises. Even food stored in packets and plastic are not safe as rodents can easily gnaw the packets and poison the contents.
Apart from food, rats will also cause damage to the warehouses by gnawing at papers, files, and wires. Gnawed, exposed wires can be a dangerous fire hazard, starting electrical fires and causing serious damage to the property and humans. Rat infestations can completely ruin all the stored stock in warehouses leading to severe financial losses that ruin business.
