Food Plants

Food plants are facilities that are always at risk to pest and rodent issues. Large shipments of raw product and supplies are received daily. The product could be infested or even the trailers in which it is delivered in might be infested from a prior shipment. Food plants have raw product and finished product which can be very expensive and must be properly protected.
