Stock Protection

KRÄUTER MIX – Stock Protection

An extensive stock protection system, consisting of a combination of active and passive protection measures, has long been an integral part of KRÄUTER MIX’s inventory management system. The passive protection system, operated through a certified company, consists of a series of protection elements. Comprehensive building protection measures are supplemented with operative protection measures:

  • Protection of the site perimeter from rodents using bait stations
  • Interior: Rodent control bait stations; cockroach monitoring; monitoring of “flying infestations“ using pheromone bait stations as well as through UV protective equipment in the entrance areas

The measures conducted are documented and the results can be viewed online on request, the verification is, amongst others, RFID supported.

Two systems for the active elimination of living infestations, employing different but equally effective systems, are also available for contract processing. A qualified gassing supervisor and trained personnel, together with the necessary technical equipment, ensure proper ISO conform operation.
