New England food and pharmaceutical products, and related packaging facilities, face stringent pest control regulations and rigorous third-party safety audits. We know because we are a resource and trusted partner for the food and pharmaceutical industries to keep operations up and running!
Our commercial technicians routinely work with multiple auditing agencies, including AIB, BRC Global Standards for Food, Kraft Audits, SQF, and NSF. In other words, we’re well aware of the regulatory ins and outs—and have the expertise needed to keep your facilities compliant.
We take our pest prevention strategy further by backing up our work with an industry-leading service warranty. That means if any covered pest returns to your facility in between our regular service calls, we’ll treat it again to help get you back into compliance at no additional charge.
Pest-related costly damage to food and pharmaceutical facilities can happen in a variety of ways, especially when pests invade storage rooms and contaminate raw materials. However, disruptions at any stage of the process—whether in production, packaging, or even in shipping—can have disastrous and domino-like effects, bringing operations to a halt.
Thankfully, there’s an approach that takes all of the pest control concerns of the food and pharmaceutical industry into account. It’s called Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, and it’s how Pest-End will help you stay ahead of dangerous and costly pest problems in your facility.
IPM prioritizes monitoring and early detection over widespread treatment options. It’s a more holistic approach that addresses and corrects the root causes of most pest problems, reducing overall pest-related instances. For example, improper sanitation procedures are one of the leading causes of pest-related problems in any commercial setting. Finally, if pests that could threaten safety or operations are discovered, IPM also provides a set of guidelines for dealing with the problem in the least invasive manner possible.
An effective IPM plan involves seven distinct steps or stages, all of which Pest-End will include when we work with you to develop a specific plan addressing the needs of your particular facility.
The materials used in the production of food and pharmaceuticals attract a particular breed of pest: scavengers. The fact that food facilities manufacture the very thing they’re after doesn’t help. Another attraction: water and moisture. That one-two combination is what attracts these common pests to your New England facility:
Of course, that’s not a complete list—wildlife, including birds, are likely to break into your facility from time to time as well. So don’t worry; we’ll handle those problems too.
We’ve been in the commercial pest control business for over 40 years. In that time, we’ve learned how to work with regulators and inspectors to ensure safe, uninterrupted operations. You can rest assured that we’ve got all the regulatory angles covered in Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. That also means we’re a part of the same communities you serve.
The first thing we’ll do is draft an individualized service package for your facility’s particular needs. Still, for most of our food and pharmaceutical clients, our service is centered around these common steps:
We know you don’t need us to tell you that your industry is highly regulated. It's part of your day-to-day routine—one we imagine leaves very little room for pest control and prevention. That's why we want to take some of the weight off your shoulders.
Our service warranty comes with a guarantee that we'll eradicate pests from your property or return to treat again, free of charge, until your property is pest free. It's just our way of saying that, when it comes to pests, we've got it handled—you focus on the rest.
