Patricia Hottel, technical director for McCloud, contributes to Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery’s article “Companies employ pest prevention to keep snack and bakery facilities safe and sanitary”
Pest prevention is extremely important for snack and bakery facilities—any and all pests that get into product then make that product unusable, and can cost thousands in product recalls.
Pat Hottel, technical director at pest management company McCloud Services, gives snack and bakery facility managers the top pests they need to watch out for in their food plants. These pests can range from different types of beetles to rodents. However, she shares that the pests plaguing a facility are dependent on what products the company is making and the environment they are in. Because of this, Hottel provides insights on the types of preventative measures snack and bakery facilities need to make in order to remain pest-free.
