The Necessity of Pest Control for Food Preparation and Distribution Businesses


Pest Control: An Essential for Food Service 


Proper pest management solutions are critical for all types of food service businesses as it’s your job to ensure safe and sterile conditions for all food-handling tasks. The presence of insects and rodents can spread bacteria and diseases that risk the health of your customers and staff. They also do serious harm to your reputation. 
Unfortunately, pests are drawn towards food, making food service businesses particularly vulnerable to pest activity. Professional pest management services provide the solution. Clark’s Pest has the knowledge and expertise to deliver safe and effective food distribution pest control services to keep your business safe and healthy and your good reputation intact.

Anticimex SMART Pest Control

Fly Light Installation & Maintenance


Flies buzzing around indoors is more than an annoyance. Like many insects, flies carry bacteria and can spread diseases that put the health of your patients and staff at risk. Clark’s Pest provides effective fly control from liquids, baits, and mechanical light devices that we install and maintain to ensure continued fly control.


Mice & Rat Control


Food processing companies face a significant imperative in implementing robust pest control measures to combat the menace of mice and rats. These rodents pose serious threats to both product integrity and public health. Mice and rats can gnaw through packaging, contaminate food products with their urine and feces, and carry diseases that can infect humans. In addition to causing physical damage to stored goods, their presence can lead to regulatory non-compliance, product recalls, and reputational damage. It is imperative for food processing facilities to establish a comprehensive pest control program that includes regular inspections, proper sanitation practices, and the implementation of rodent-proofing measures such as sealing entry points and employing bait stations. SMART Pest Control is a proven and effective means of controlling these rodents. By prioritizing the prevention and elimination of mice and rats, food processing companies not only protect their products and reputation but also contribute to maintaining high standards of food safety for consumers.


Cockroach Control 


Cockroaches are resilient pests known for their ability to thrive in food-related environments, making them particularly troublesome for food processing facilities. These pests can contaminate food products and processing areas with bacteria, pathogens, and allergens through their feces, saliva, and shed skins. Effective pest control is essential to prevent the spread of diseases and maintain compliance with stringent hygiene and safety standards in the food industry. Cockroach infestations can lead to regulatory violations, product recalls, and damage to the company’s reputation. Implementing a multifaceted approach, including regular inspections, sealing entry points, maintaining cleanliness, and utilizing appropriate insecticides, is crucial for preventing and controlling cockroach infestations in food processing facilities. By investing in robust pest control measures, these companies can ensure the production of safe, high-quality food products and demonstrate their commitment to consumer health and safety.


Indian Meal Moth Control


Indian Meal Moths are notorious for infiltrating and contaminating stored food products, causing significant economic losses, and posing serious health risks. Indian meal moths can infest a wide range of food items, including grains, cereals, dried fruits, and nuts. Their larvae feed on the food products, leaving behind webbing and excrement that can compromise the quality and safety of the processed foods. Implementing a robust pest control program is crucial for food processing companies to prevent the spread of Indian meal moths, safeguard product integrity, comply with food safety regulations, and maintain consumer trust. Regular inspections, proper sanitation practices, and the use of targeted insecticides are essential components of an effective pest management strategy in the food processing industry. Proactive pest control measures not only protect the reputation of the company but also contribute to ensuring the overall safety and quality of the food products manufactured and distributed by these companies.
