There’s a lot more to warehouse management today than racking and keeping up with inventory, shipping and receiving.


With increasing numbers of protocols required, there are multiple warehouse management procedures and processes for tasks that include inventory control, material handling, safety, hazardous materials, supply chain operations, quality assurance, tracking, cleanliness and more. Staying compliant with prescribed protocols is a priority for warehouse managers and owners, but it’s not always easy.

Fortunately, warehouse managers have a helpful resource that they may not have considered.  “A knowledgeable, professional pest control partner can help with some key warehouse management protocols, such as those relating to quality assurance, inventory control and cleanliness,” said Mike Vazeii, Terminix Commercial Director of Marketing. “With customized pest control solutions, qualified pest control professionals can help warehouse managers protect packaging, product quality and sanitary conditions as well as help meet certain audit and regulatory requirements.”

Pest control can be especially challenging in warehouses, Vazeii said. “Large buildings, like warehouses, have plenty of places for pests to live and breed,” he points out. “Cracks, crevices and dark corners can all be conducive for pest infestations. Besides being unsightly and unsanitary, some pests can also damage products, equipment, electrical wiring and building structures. It’s almost impossible to monitor every inch of a big warehouse facility without professional help. Pest control specialists know where hiding spots are likely to be and how to treat them, as well as how to help warehouse staff in spotting pest signs and implementing prevention techniques.”
