Food Production Pest Control

Physical Control Methods

Physical control methods play a vital role in pest management, encompassing essential measures like exclusion, sanitation, trapping and fly control units. Exclusion involves creating physical barriers to prevent pests from entering the area. On the other hand, sanitation revolves around maintaining a pristine environment devoid of enticing food and water sources that can attract pests. Lastly, trapping serves as a valuable physical control method, aiding in capturing and removing pests from the food production area.

Chemical Control Methods

Chemical control methods play a pivotal role in pest management, employing pesticides and other specialised chemicals to eradicate pests. At Vergo, we prioritise the responsible and judicious use of chemical control methods, adhering to stringent pest regulations. We utilise products specifically formulated for food production environments, ensuring the highest safety and compliance standards. Our team meticulously follows all safety and application guidelines, mitigating the risk of contamination and safeguarding the integrity of your products.

Biological Control

Biological control methods involve the use of natural predators, parasites, or pathogens to control pests. For example, ladybugs can be used to control aphids, and parasitic wasps can be used to control caterpillars. This method is often considered as the most sustainable approach in pest control.

Vigilant Monitoring and Swift Action

Monitoring the food production area for pests is crucial to maintaining optimal control. At Vergo, we understand the significance of promptly addressing any detected pest infestations. This entails implementing additional control methods, such as targeted baiting or spot treatments, specifically tailored to address the areas where pests have been identified.
