INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT
Communication, prevention and safety are key elements for success in the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy at IFC.
IFC’s ProTrak™ electronic reporting system offers unparalleled service information, trending and tracking capabilities for rodent control, insect light trap (ILT) monitoring, pheromone monitoring and many other IPM functions.
Our fumigation teams are certified and comprehensively trained in safety and current techniques for fumigating all types of containers, ships, barges and structures containing food and non-food products.
Mechanical foggers and aerosol formulations create an assortment of different particle sizes. To increase the effectiveness of the fogging, these particles should be blown or released as close to the ceiling of the structure being fogged as possible.
Food safety is a growing concern in food production facilities. Product recalls are increasing every year and can cost millions of dollars in revenue. While many chemical options can clean and sanitize, they often do not reach the entire surface.
FC has specifically trained heat treatment personnel to assess any facility for suitability of heat treatment and has the capability to supervise or provide a turn-key heat treatment.
IFC has a professional staff capable of assessing a pest bird situation and implementing the most appropriate deterrent measures for large and small projects.
The quality of the program affects the results of audits. Whether your facility faces a corporate inspection, customer audits or the scrutinizing requirements of the many food safety initiatives, IFC’s Integrated Pest Management programs ensure top scores.
IFC knows the organic food industry and has been working with organically certified facilities even before USDA first introduced the official National Organic Program in 2000.
