The Risk: An Attractive
Both raw material storage and finished good storage areas present large, attractive caches of food for pests. Stored Product Pests can hitchhike in with incoming raw materials, not only damaging those materials, but potentially infesting your entire facility, leading to shutdowns and further product losses. Rodents can easily find their way through gaps and holes and quickly damage materials.
Implement best-practice sanitation tech
niques and monitor incoming goods and pest activity within your raw materials & finished goods storage area. Make sure all doors within the facility are closed whenever possible, inspect for gaps and holes on both exterior and interior walls, and stay on top of proper cleaning protocols.
