Warehousing & Logistics
Professional pest control, prevention, and management is now a vital part of sanitation for most warehousing and logistics properties – and rightly so. Due to their abundance of stored products, warehouses are particularly susceptible to pests, as many insects and rodents will feed on goods and materials if left uncontrolled. Certain pests can also contaminate raw materials and products with their droppings, webbing, and skin casts, leading to a loss of goods and revenue.
Potential consequences of a pest infestation in the warehousing & logistics industry include:
- cancellation of contracts leading to loss of revenue
- penalization for non-compliance with regulatory laws
- customer complaints and loss of trust
- increased costs for delayed treatments
Florida Pest Control’s highly-trained professionals are equipped with a wealth of technical expertise to meet the challenges these complex structures pose. Our experts have also been educated on the unique needs of all areas in the warehousing and logistics industry.

Integrated Bird Management for Warehousing & Logistics
Distribution and logistics warehouses and facilities have a higher likelihood of pest bird activity due to their specific building construction and location. Although birds may seem innocent, a single pigeon’s droppings and feathers can carry and transmit over 60 diseases.
Having birds around your property is a serious health and safety concern – they can weaken air quality, destroy equipment and your building, contaminate goods, and create an unsightly mess.
In some cases, just a sighting of birds can be a cause for audit failure or inspection, leading to shutdowns and lost revenue. The mess they leave behind can also be costly to clean up.
Florida Pest Control’s Integrated Bird Management Program safely and humanely removes bird infestations through an innovative and comprehensive solution of trapping, removal, and targeted exclusion techniques, focusing on the areas of your distribution and logistics environment that are most susceptible to bird activity.
Stored Product Insects for Distribution & Logistics
Facilities that have an abundance of dried foods and grains can be a thriving environment for stored product insect infestations. These pests can feed on a variety of products, including pet food, birdseed, dried fruits, chocolate, and flour and grain products, causing contamination issues and making you susceptible to lost business.
Combatting stored product insect issues such as Indian meal moths, warehouse beetles, and red and confused flour beetles, requires targeted service protocols. Your dedicated Florida Pest Control technician will conduct detailed inspections, focusing on production and storage areas. We will physically remove any infestations we locate, apply residual products and insect growth regulators to provide lasting protection, and install special pheromone monitors to notify us of the potential for new activity.
Additionally, your dedicated technician will spend time educating your staff on how to prevent issues from recurring, building an impenetrable defense against stored product insects at your facility.
