Stored product pests are beetles, weevils or moths that feed on or gather around processed and non-processed dry foods such as pasta, flour, cereal, pet foods, dry milk, grains, spices, baked goods and other dry goods. Stored product pests generally affect food processing and food retail facilities where the ingredients and processes can create ideal conditions for these pests.
These insects can have a major impact to your business including:
- Product loss
- Lost production time
- Audit score deduction
- Treatment costs
- Brand reputation
- Consumer complaints
Elimination of these pests can be costly, both in terms of required treatment and production downtime.
Our proactive Stored Product Pest Programme helps to identify problem areas and drive down pest activity.
A successful prevention programme requires a strong partnership between you and Ecolab. Together, we can identify and prevent conditions that can cause pest-related risk.
