Pest Control for Food Processing Plants In New Jersey & New York
For food processing facilities, complying with state and federal regulations is top priority. In order to maintain the highest levels of quality and safety, the food processing plant must be clean, sanitized and free of pests. At Horizon Pest Control, we’ve been a leader in commercial pest control for nearly 50 years. Leveraging our knowledge, experience and expertise, we’ll help keep your facility pest-free.
Common Pests Found in Food Processing Plants
From flying insects to rodents, a wide range of pests can infest food processing plants. Stored product pests, like beetles, weevils, moths and mites, are known for infesting food in storage. Rats and mice, which are attracted to food supplies, are also a potential threat to food processing facilities. Cockroaches and flies, like drain flies and fruit flies, can multiply rapidly in processing plants, and pigeons, house sparrows, seagulls and starlings can cause physical damage to building materials.
The Horizon Difference
Pests are carriers for a wide range of diseases, such as salmonella, staphylococcus, Listeria and E. coli. Their droppings, fur, feathers and nesting material can directly contaminate ingredients, and their presence can cause serious structural damage. Taking all these factors into consideration, pests must be completely eradicated from food processing plants to ensure proper hygiene. That’s where Horizon can help.
Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) process exceeds state and/or federal requirements for food processing plants and features three steps. First, our team will inspect indoor and outdoor areas to locate areas where pests are or may be present. Then, we’ll identify the types of pests most likely to infiltrate your facility. Finally, we’ll apply different methods to eradicate the pests.
