Why you need pest control for retail
The daily movement of goods and customers through your shop increases the risk of pest infestation. Doors are often left open. Parcels are delivered. People roll strollers and walk dirty shoes into your store.
Your storage room is particularly vulnerable to pest infestation. Different goods can carry a variety of pests or their eggs, such as ants, cockroaches or flies.
Cardboard boxes and pallets can provide nesting for vermin. Insects can also travel from interstate to your loading dock on trucks.
Why pest control is essential for retail
Insurance often won’t cover the loss of goods due to insect damage. Rodents, cockroaches and spiders can cause the following problems.
- Damage product packaging
- Cause customer rejection
- Endanger your employees
- Threaten your reputation
- Damage goods
- Cause loss of profits
Cockroaches are a common pest in retail facilities
Cockroaches are attracted to damp, unclean areas and tight spaces. Our technicians have found wet cardboard packaging from recent flooding and rain attracts cockroaches.
Although these pests are shy, they’re visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation can invade tea rooms and storage facilities, even if you don’t store food.
Our technician may suggest removing packaging daily to prevent further infestation.
Ants are a pest in shops
Ants don’t spread disease but can be a nuisance. Shopping centres can attract pests such as ants because of food outlets, supermarkets, cafes and retail in one area.
Wiping away an ant trail is only a short term fix. Ants are difficult to remove without professional treatment. Customers often take food into retail shops, leaving crumbs and sometimes wrappers behind.
Rats and mice are common pests in shopping centres
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 shopping centres. SMART Digital Pest Control use 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 technology is ideal for retail pest control
SMART technology is safe for all goods, prevents infestations 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 traps are strategically placed onsite to detect infestations and efficiently deal with pests. These 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 SMART devices when needed.
