Why you need pest control for pharmaceuticals
Pharmacology companies disinfect and treat their workspaces for microbes on a daily basis, but often overlook the risk of bigger pests. While laboratories have sealed rooms, filtered air and hazmat suits, it’s outside this controlled environment that insects and other pests pose a real risk.
Contamination of medical devices, drugs or medicine by vermin is a major hazard for pharmaceutical companies. A risk assessment for all areas of production, from storage of raw materials to final transportation needs to be developed to prevent your goods from being unfit for human consumption.
The movement of therapeutics through your warehouse or storage facility increases the risk of pest infestation. Pests can hitchhike on containers, packaging or in your goods once they leave your sterile laboratory.
Storage facilities are particularly vulnerable to pest infestation. Different materials, such as cardboard, pallets and organic material can carry a variety of pests. Doors are often open in storage areas. So birds, rodents and cockroaches can easily enter.
Cardboard boxes and pallets can provide nesting for vermin. Insects can also travel from interstate to your loading dock on the truck.
Why pest control is essential for pharmaceuticals
Pests can quickly disrupt your supply chain and affect your reputation. Rodents, cockroaches and birds can cause the following problems.
- Damage product packaging
- Cause customer rejection
- Endanger your employees and patients
- Threaten your reputation
- Damage goods
- Cause loss of profits
Cockroaches are a common pest in storage facilities
Cockroaches are attracted to damp, unclean areas. Our technicians have found wet cardboard packaging from flooding and rain attracts cockroaches.
Although these pests are shy, they’re visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation can invade warehouses and storage facilities, even if you don’t store food. As these areas are open, our technicians will treat inside your facility and the perimeter.
Our technician may suggest drying damp areas and removing wet packaging to prevent further infestation.
Birds are a pest in pharmaceutical storerooms
Birds can be a problem in warehouse rafters. They can roost and nest on beams, leaving droppings on goods.
We have safe and effective bird deterrents that stop birds from nesting in your warehouse.
Rats and mice are common pests in pharmaceutical manufacturing and logistics
Another pest we find around loading docks, skip bins and storage rooms is rodents. Rats and mice spread diseases and increase very quickly in number. Our SMART technology can treat these pests discreetly, proactively and safely.

Target rodents and other pests with SMART Digital Pest Control
Pest problems can escalate quickly in logistics and manufacturing. SMART Digital Pest Control uses sensors to detect rodent activity in real-time and our technicians respond proactively. Non-toxic devices are placed where the activity is highest. So, our technicians can act with statistics based on number and frequency.
Why SMART is ideal for pharmaceutical pest control
Pest prevention is crucial for the pharmaceutical industry. SMART Digital Pest control is safe for all goods, prevents infestations, minimises the risk of secondary poisoning, and provides data for compliance.
Our technicians assess and identify the risk zones in your premises. We then use this information to create a tailored action plan. Sensors and devices are strategically placed onsite to detect infestations and efficiently deal with pests. The SMART units report back in real-time to our SMART data hub.
We find that technology combined with traditional practices keeps rodent numbers and pests under control.
Our Flick technicians will continue to regularly inspect, empty and relocate devices when needed.
