Pest Control in Agriculture
Farms are a critical part of Ontario’s supply chain, but their efforts can be threatened by pests. When that happens, not only is their livelihood impacted, but consumers are faced with a reduced supply of affordable fruits, vegetables, grains, and eggs.
Like homes and businesses, agricultural buildings like barns, silos, and processing centres have openings that let pests in. Once inside, these invaders can damage equipment, livestock, produce, and the farmer’s reputation.
