About this Event

In the past invasive bird control was often overlooked or a minor element when it came to third-party audits and government inspections but that is not the case anymore. Closer scrutiny and increased demand to safely steward food and packaging materials from farm to table, makes mitigating the threat of invasive birds essential.

Birds are unique problem in commercial properties because they can easily navigate between facilities that are miles apart and deliver pathogens in their droppings that contain harmful bacteria including listeria, E. coli and salmonella. These pathogens can be brought inside a facility on the sole of an employee’s shoe or land on food ingredients or preparation areas if the birds gain access inside.

To help QA managers and managers and staff responsible for mitigating the threat posed by invasive birds, this webinar will cover:

• A review of current trends in bird management including what new species are becoming a threat and what technology advances are available to help win the battle.

• Strategies for evaluating the invasive bird risk at your facility and what steps you can take to downgrade the threat.

• Learn what auditors and inspectors are looking for during a visit to your property, what red flags to avoid and strategies to achieve a successful audit.

• Recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of your IPM-based invasive bird management program.
