Stored product pests are pests that fall into two main insect orders commonly known as beetles and moths. Stored product pests can infest stored foods, damage raw materials used in food, and contaminate finished products. This would not only affect the food itself but it would also increase the risk of accelerating insect problems and leading to problems with damp, mold and even grain germination.
These pests are primary and secondary pests of grains and are responsible for infesting foodstuffs such as dried fruits, flour products, nuts, spices, various processed food lines, tobacco etc. They are the least feared pests but probably the most damaging and potentially dangerous group of pests.
Infestations of stored product pests are a common and major threat to food processing, mills and warehouse/storage facilities. Ongoing inspections and monitoring of these type of situations is critical, Boyer can provide necessary recommendations and servicing to prevent problems occurring.
Boyer can also provide on-site training sessions to staff at your facility and point out hot spots so that your staff are aware of how to recognize potential problems, especially through maintenance and cleaning systems.
