Food Production

get rid of birdsHow Birds Affect the Industry

Where there is food there are pests, including birds. Many food manufacturing plants have problems when birds enter through large open doors such loading docks. Birds will roost or nest in rafters above food production or storage sites.

Bird droppings can contaminate food production or stored product when droppings fall from the rafters above. Dried bird dropping spores can enter through ventilation systems and contaminate surfaces, food and equipment. Over the last five years there have been countless food manufacturing sites fined for the presence of birds.
