  • Protect your reputation


Factories and manufacturing plants are at high risk of a host of different pest activities. The production and storage of goods, especially if they are food or drink related, can become a prime target for infestations and contamination. When a pest infestation takes hold, it can sometimes take more than basic cleaning and sanitation practices to find the root of the problem, which is where Monitor Pest Control can step in and help.

A serious pest infestation in your factory or production facility can cost your organisation thousands or even millions of pounds through risk of contamination, loss of stock, building repairs, interruption to business operations, or product recalls, and could seriously damage your reputation and cause disruption to supply chains. Having an insufficient manufacturing or factory pest control programme in place may also prevent you from gaining or retaining important accreditations such as ISO 9001, BRC or SALSA, and could pose a serious public health risk.

One of the reasons that factories, warehouses and manufacturing plants are at high risk of suffering from pest problems is that their processing areas frequently house a variety of different materials from multiple different sources, suppliers and even countries. As a result, the potential for pests to enter the production facility and thrive is high.

Factories and manufacturing plants that process food are at especially high risk of pest infestation. Food is particularly attractive to flies, insects, rodents, and stored product insects. What’s more, most food processing businesses are BRC or SALSA accredited, both of which require good pest control procedures and food safety practices to be in place.

Many businesses are also subject to even more stringent regulation, if they are supplying the likes of Tesco, M & S, Morrisons, etc – all of which Monitor Pest Control currently service and manage.

Ant Control 2


There are several categories of pests that can infest a factory. The most common are:


 Rats and mice can be a major concern for factories, particularly within storage warehouses. Rats will gnaw through or eat goods of any material, including food, clothes, paper or furniture, causing irreparable damage to stock. Rodents can also cause damage to buildings, production areas, fixtures and fittings by gnawing through wires and wood. Rodents are a common source of electrical damage leading to fires.


General Insects

General insect pests such as flies, fleas, cockroaches, beetles, moths, silverfish, and wood-boring insects can all wreak havoc on a production facility, should an infestation take hold. Some insects can also infest paper products and packaging.

Stored Product Insects

If your factory processes raw food stuffs such as flour and grains, stored product insects including flour and biscuit beetles have the potential to ruin huge quantities of stock. Fast, efficient pest eradication is essential.

Does Monitor offer pest control for factories in Kent?

Yes! As a Kent based pest control company, we operate pest control solutions for factories and manufacturing plants across Kent, London and the South East.

How often should pest control in factories be carried out?

The exact frequency of pest control procedures for factories can vary depending on factors such as location, storage facilities, size of premises and what type of stock is being stored and manufactured on site. At Monitor, we are dedicated to providing bespoke and practical pest control programmes for businesses to ensure that your specific requirements are met and your premises stays compliant.

Why do factories need pest control?

Pest control is an integral part of the HACCP and other food safety requirements, and therefore is essential.

With factories producing large volumes of stock, often including warehouses which contain a variety of materials for different sources, and experiencing high footfall from suppliers from various locations, the opportunity for pests to find their way into your facility is very likely. At Monitor Pest Control, we provide a comprehensive service to not only eliminate your existing pest problem, but preventing the problem from reoccurring also.
