Scientific Pest Management has provided responsive and programmed pest management services across Australia for over 40 years.

We provide both audit and compliance services to food and beverage distribution facilities and sub-contractors. Our tailored services include but not limited to:

  • Understanding the premises/storage facility design to identify entry/hiding areas of pests
  • Inspection of food and beverage transport vehicles and equipment/carts and loading docks
  • Understanding the distribution chain
  • Warehouse maintenance and exclusion practices for pest management purposes
  • Advice on good housekeeping and hygiene practices
  • Pest management inspections and monitoring
  • Physical control methods
  • Chemical control methods
  • Habitat/environment management

We do not provide the same strategy for each client – we actually understand your business, its demands, the distribution plant along with the environment and locations, client industries and businesses etc. as no distribution business is the same. We then tailor a pest management strategy around that. Also, your pest management strategy will evolve and change due to seasons along with different changes in the local environment, customers, sub-contractors and distribution routes.

How we deal with Pests

Our staff are highly trained to carry out an audit of your premises. They treat every premise that they visit differently and tailor a programmed pest plan to suit the environmental factors, including seasons. We use technology as our helping hand to monitor and track incidents or to make changes to your bait stations in real-time. Your account manager and technician are then alerted in real-time in order to investigate any issues just in case any issues arise in between scheduled programmed maintenances. You will then be provided with reports for your own purposes along with providing those reports to your customers.

Food Standards and Compliance

Whilst structuring your pest management strategy, we will also understand your micro-business needs which includes legal, industry and business requirements that you need to achieve. For example, our practices can meet HACCP, AQIS, FSANZ standards and Health Department regulations. We can also adapt your compliance to suit supermarkets such as (not limited to) Woolworths, Coles, IGA and Costco.
