Experiencing increased rodent pressure at their large distribution center, an Ecolab Pest Elimination
customer wanted greater visibility into pest activity occurring both inside and outside the facility. The customer’s 4 million square foot distribution facility, located within a warehouse district surrounded by water and tree lines, is within a few miles of an active import/export facility. The dense vegetation combined with local environmental factors created an ideal breeding ground for rodents by providing direct access to food, shelter and water.
To prevent pest risk, it is essential to first identify and address the root cause(s) of pest activity. The root causes identified as contributing to the customer’s pest activity included open doors, multiple entry points, deliveries of goods to and from the nearby import/export facility and structural and sanitation issues.
Recognizing Ecolab Pest Elimination’s expertise and valuable partnership, the customer asked Ecolab to develop a comprehensive digital solution that would provide greater visibility and detail into the root causes to help reduce current rodent pressure and proactively prevent future pest risks. Ecolab’s digital innovation provides additional insights and data to help pinpoint rodent activity, pressure points, and high-risk areas – all imperative for a more prescriptive service, further safeguarding the facility.
