A grocery store or a Supermarket creates an ideal habitat for pests. The environment provides the three essentials the nuisances seek: water, shelter, and food, which can be found in great abundance.
Many common pests feed on the same foods we eat, and the variety of edible items grocery stores offer can appeal to a range of pest species. To make matters worse, fruits and vegetables, which many pests prefer, remain displayed out in the open, giving the unwanted guests easy access to food.
With frequent deliveries and steady traffic into stores, pests find ample opportunities to come inside. No threat is too small, as the presence of a single pest can prove costly and detrimental to your business.
At HFO Solutions, we understand both the sensitive nature of retail food sales and the importance of maintaining a pest-free environment despite the challenges. We can help you set up an integrated pest management (IPM) plan that is tough on pest, easy on people, minimizes pesticide use, and conforms to all regulatory and good-practice requirements for food-related businesses.
