Tesco turns to tech for pest control
New high-tech pest control has reduced the use of rodenticide at Tesco stores and warehouses by 40%
Rentokil Pest Control worked with Tesco to deploy PestConnect, a system that uses intelligent technology to monitor for pests in real-time, while also reducing reliance on toxic baits or rodenticides.
Tony O’Donovan, head of pest control at Tesco, said: “Tesco is continually looking for ways to improve our sustainability practices and reduce our environmental footprint. Rentokil’s intelligent pest management system provides us with a wealth of data that helps us to more effectively manage pests, ensure our premises are properly pest proofed, and that robust prevention measures are in place.”
