Food Processing

Proactive Pest Management for Food Manufacturing

Food Processing Pest ControlThe food and beverage products industry is highly competitive and regulated by the most stringent standards of quality and hygiene. In this environment, we know that fouling or contamination of food from even minor activity – rats, mice, insects – is totally unacceptable.

Our Service Plan is designed specifically to ensure that pest activity will not have a negative impact on your standards, or those of your customers and auditors. It will be very specific to the facility and will take into account the particular pest threats according to the type of food processing, the ingredients used and the finished products. If left unchecked pests can have disastrous and damaging consequences for the business :

  • Damage to the fabric of buildings, chewed wiring and electrical equipment
  • Loss or contamination of products
  • Health and safety risk
  • Loss of Reputation
  • Loss of Revenue and increased costs

At Strathearn Pest Control, we provide a professional service to eradicate and control all types of pests and carry out this work throughout Scotland. We install preventative controls and detection technology to minimise the risk of an initial infestation and provide an early warning of possible problems. We will work with you to eradicate the pest, whether it is through a one-off treatment or the development and provision of a tailored service plan. We will advise on working practices and procedures to reduce the risk of pests entering the facility or becoming a problem. Any problems will be dealt with quickly and effectively.

Our methods are discrete and appropriate for the environment and will ensure you comply with the strictest quality.


Our expert pest control is designed to prevent insect and rodent infestations within your facilities, by removing harbourage and attractants. By using an integrated pest management approach, all your specialist needs are met, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.

Our local technician will regularly visit your site and

  • Initially identify the cause of the infestation
  • Install and then regularly inspect the preventative measures in place
  • check for signs of pest activity
  • identify any potential risks
  • advise on steps, including proofing, you can take to reduce the risk of pest problems

All the information from each pest control service visit is recorded for audit purposes. Any signs of pest activity are highlighted, together with actions taken and recommendations to reduce the risk. The audit trail is transparent in case of any incident and is consistent with the main food manufacturing standards.

If there is a problem, our rapid response commitment will mean that your technician will be with you quickly to deal with the pest.

To find out more about how we can help you either on a one-off basis or with a longer term preventative Service Plan for your premises or to arrange a visit from one of our specialist team, please call us on 0800 0283 703. Alternatively just complete our online contact form.
