The food processing industry must adhere to strict regulations and has many guidelines to follow when it comes to maintaining a clean, safe, and healthy environment. The food industry is under rigorous watch and one failed inspection in any food processing plant or facility can lead to a shut-down, halt operations, cause food recalls, affect employees, and cost the facility owner thousands of dollars.
For these reasons alone, working with a professional pest control company such as Ehrlich Pest Control, formerly Connor’s is imperative. We have decades of experience providing food processing facility pest control to storage and food facilities and have the knowledge and resources to effectively keep pests away for good.

Food processing facility pest control safety concerns
Pests in food processing plants, warehouses, and other facilities don’t only affect business operations—they pose a serious health risk. When it comes to operating a successful food processing facility or distribution center, keeping a pest-free environment is a top priority for more than one reason. Several of the health safety concerns of pests in the food distribution industry include:
- Some pests are capable of spreading food-borne illnesses or diseases.
- Pests can contaminate food at any stage of production, which can cause a domino effect of infected food.
- Severe damage can be inflicted upon buildings, wiring, fixtures, and machinery.
- Food contaminated by pests inside a facility can be transported out during delivery before the problem is realized.
- Pests can leave behind damage or messes that are costly to clean up.
