Title: Pests to Watch Out for as Moisture Levels Fluctuate


Fungus feeders are extremely common pests in warehouses. These pests can become problematic when moisture levels rise and allow molds and fungus to grow, offering pests such as psocids and a few types of beetles, the food they need to survive in your storage environments. Managing moisture, humidity and air movement in your facility is critical to keep these pests out. Fungus feeders can be found in pallets, on and inside packaging, in supplies and many other places.

Hear from Orkin’s expert entomologist, Benjamin Hottel, on what fungus feeders are, the risks they pose to your goods and business, proactive measures you can take to avoid them and how an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan can help you proactively manage fungus feeders in your facility.
