Food Processing

pest control for food processing plants

You have heard of HACCP…your industry’s management system in which food safety is addressed through the
analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement
and, handling; to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.

Food Processing Facilities require a pest control company that can accommodate the strict standards set by
the AIB and FDA. Eden Advanced Pest Technologies is able to meet those needs through our own systematic and
strategic system of IPM, or Integrated Pest Management, designed specifically for your facility. Our
customized IPM programs and services synchronize with your facilities’ protocols and requirements. Eden also
integrates a variety of tools and features, including Electronic Bar-code Monitoring, Online Data Reporting,
Routine Quality Audits, and inspections to ensure the highest level of quality and effective service.

We work with you! We have 3 ACE Certified Entomologists on staff and our well-trained team will communicate,
educate, and work with you and your onsite staff to develop the most effective protocol.

Integrated Pest Management

IPM is the most comprehensive and effective method of pest control. Eden provides IPM services that
are unique to your industry and your facilities, managing and preventing pest situations at all
stages. Instead of solely relying on material application for control, Eden’s IPM approach focuses
on four key levels of control:

  1. Keeping pests from entering the facility (Physical Exclusion and Access Denial).
  2. Making the location unattractive to pests (Habitat and Harborage Modification).
  3. Utilizing traps and deterring mechanisms (Physical and Mechanical Controls).
  4. Limited or Focused Material Application, only when necessary and in conjunction with the first 3

When material applications are necessary, Eden uses low-risk products and focuses treatments to the
source of the problem, eliminating unnecessary pesticide usage.

Eden’s IPM programs are results driven and thoroughly documented to track success, including:

  • Results Analysis Reporting
  • Communication Log Books on site
  • Online Graphs and Bar-coding reports

LEED Certification

Eden’s sustainable pest solutions can help your building(s) become LEED Certified. Indoor
Environmental Quality is one of the categories that LEED measures. The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency estimates that Americans spend about 90% of their day indoors, where the air quality can be
significantly worse than outdoors. The Indoor Environmental Quality credit category promotes
strategies that can improve indoor air. By working with a pest control company that has a truly
Green program, like Eden’s Natural Choice Program, you will earn LEED points. Just make sure to tell
your Eden Consultant that your company is trying to earn LEED Certification so they know to design
your services accordingly.

Barcode Monitoring System

Through proper data collection, Eden can pinpoint the source of the problem and implement the most
efficient protocol to provide a solution, therefore saving you time and money while eliminating
unnecessary or overuse of pesticides.
