Rodents are an increasing threat to food safety and brand reputation throughout the supply chain. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), rodents can contaminate food and food surfaces and transmit more than 35 diseases to humans.
Julie Marquardt, vice president of Research, Development & Engineering for Ecolab Pest Elimination, says: "Our data shows that 40 per cent of restaurants with rodent activity will likely have rodents in the ceiling.
"This has often been difficult to detect and control, but our new approach to ceiling monitoring helps enable us to quickly identify and resolve rodent activity and protect public health.
The Rodent Ceiling Service monitors and protects hard-to-access ceiling areas, and functions as an extension of Ecolab Pest Elimination’s "outside-in" approach.
Featuring integrated mouse, rat or bait traps which are customized to meet particular needs and requirements, the solution is already reducing interior rodent activity by a third according to data from Ecolab.
