For warehouses and distribution facilities to stay compliant and meet client expectations, it’s important to keep pests out of your premises. Contamination of materials and products through pest droppings and webbing can cause you to lose revenue.
Given the nature of product distribution, this is often easier said than done. Large amounts of products are being brought in, stored and then sent back out, so it’s easy for pests to be introduced.
Any pest infestation can put you at risk of being prosecuted or having your contract terminated.
Fortunately, Statewide Pest Control are a well-resourced and highly trained team with extensive experience in managing pests in warehouse facilities.

Warehouse pest management process
We have an established, effective process to manage pests in warehouses and distribution facilities.
Step 1. We conduct a free audit of your business and premises
It’s important we get a thorough understanding of every business we work with, so we can assess your risks of pest infestation. We:
- Understand how goods enter and leave the area
- Assess the layout of your warehouse to identify possible pest dwelling spaces and all possible and entry points
- Check your existing pest reports
- Inspect the surrounding environment, for any places that pests may enter your facility from
Step 2. We assign you your own pest control teams
We make sure your pest management is only done by people who know your business inside and out. We give you a dedicated account manager and pest control technicians, who keep a close eye on pest management across your operation.
Step 3. We plan out your Integrated Pest Management program
Once we thoroughly understand your business and associated risks, we design an integrated program with three main steps: inspect, identify and treat.
These usually include:
- Best practices for product storage and movement
- Good housekeeping and sanitation
- Building and maintenance exclusion practices
- Pest inspections
- Physical control methods
- Chemical control methods
- Managing the surrounding environment
Step 4. We use PesTrak to keep you up to date and keep track of your compliance
Our proprietary PesTrak system is a bait station monitoring tool that shows you all of your baiting activities in real-time and allows us to keep a close eye on your facilities. If you call us or we get an automatic alert about activity in a baiting station, we can remotely check your facility and take action if required.
This means we can check up on your premises remotely in the event that you call us, or the PesTrak system alerted us that there is activity in one of the baiting stations. This allows us to take action if required.
If you are audited, all your compliance-related documents are kept together on the platform where you can access them anytime 24/7, 365 days a year.
Legislation and compliance
A pest infestation won’t just upset clients, it can also cause them to terminate contracts or make you liable for prosecution.
Given how easy it is for pests to enter warehouses on delivered goods, it’s important to get experienced pest controllers in to keep you compliant.
Statewide Pest Control are across both ISO and HACCP compliance standards, and we can also deploy solutions to meet any other standard you need. As we spend a long time getting to know your business, customers and supply chain, we tailor this specific to your own operations to make sure you are compliant.
If you need ISO compliance, we can adopt ISO standard pest management services within your premises to meet both internal and external requests. Our pest control strategies are compliant with your ISO accreditation.
Any warehouse or distribution facilities that work with food will need to meet food safety HACCP standards, which we are certified to apply pest management for.
If your warehouse or distribution facilities isn't food related but rather products based, we can adopt the appropriate standards for your premises.
Other certified standards
For any other standards you need, we can roll out a pest management solution that meets both your internal and external pest management requirements.
