PEST CONTROL
mice and insects. Potential entry
points are sealed, food sources
removed, and traffic patterns interrupted if possible. Egg processing
facilities require a different set of

controls to manage a different set of
pest challenges.
It is important to monitor pest
controls such as bait stations,
traps and lights to observe their

impact. A monitoring schedule
should be closely followed to make
data gathered relevant for subsequent comparison and analysis.
Documenting quantities of
pests at each station makes it
possible to analyze where pest
activity is located within a
facility. Rodent activity is documented with a Rodent Index and
fly activity can be measured with
a variety of methods.
With this information, it is possible
to determine if corrective actions are
needed, such as moving bait stations,
adding more interventions or if a
different bait might be required.
As changes are made, then
again evaluate the documentation
to ensure implemented changes
have achieved the desired effect.
Continued monitoring and verification ensure the program is working
with optimal efficiency.
All documentation needs to
be in the same format to optimize
long-term analysis. By looking at
trends, it is possible to determine
year-to-year seasonal impact,
product efficacy, and overall
program efficacy. Accurate documentation is a good tool to use with
potential customers to demonstrate
pest control commitment.

the responsibility of the quality
