Managing Pest Issues in the Pharma

Cockroaches in pharmaceutical companies cause contamination. Cockroaches also are a source of powerful allergens, causing asthma, eczema and allergies. Further, cockroaches are known to transmit a number of diseases, such as Cholera, Typhoid and Salmonella.

Flies are a common nuisance in pharmaceutical companies. They carry and transmit a range of disease causing pathogens. Flies are very mobile and can easily enter into the premises if precautions to restrict their access are not implemented.

Pharmaceutical facilities that handle dried starches and meals can be the target of stored product insect infestations such as Indian meal moths, warehouse beetles, and red and confused flour beetles. These pests can feed on any number of products, compromise cleanrooms and areas, contaminate products, and make the pharmaceutical company susceptible to expensive product recalls and lost business.

PCAMB design’s a customized IPM program to meet the needs of a pharmaceutical facility, taking into account critical factors such as structural integrity, environmental pest pressures, and potential for pest activity. Our IPM programs are sensitive to the needs of this industry always focusing on the judicious use of high quality appropriate insecticides.

We lay emphasis on pest prevention and quality documentation of services & inspection reports.

Cleanliness in a pharmaceutical facility has an even deeper meaning than it does in most facilities. To meet exacting regulatory standards and thirdparty audit requirements, there has to be absolutely zero intrusion from pests.
