It is highly recommended to not have a pesticide sprayed beside the product totally and instead of this a pest control program shall be in place build on a risk assessment showing the different types of pests that could infesting your stores , this shall be made by your pest control provider. 

In case of high infestation i think the better solution is fumigation by CO2. 


Kindly find below two links : 

1. Orkin site one of the leading companies in IPM making a library with identifying pests (life cycle- habitat- etc) (https://www.orkin.com/other/

2. Fumigation by Co2 (http://umanitoba.ca/...on_with_CO2.pdf


Hope that i help you.

Hi, Gel.


Suggest you put the proper context so we can assist you better.


If you see it in the line, you may want to review your "barriers" or entry point. You may also want to review your sanitation (especially if there are some parts of your facility where there is possible product accumulation and is hard to clean on a routine basis). Sometimes correction of these factors alone would help you resolve these issues.


If already seen in the your materials, conduct assessment, and if the local personnel in charge for pest management is not competent enough to apply fumigation (please check local regulation which chemical is approved), then it is better to seek from the experts. They might recommend you the best options for your problem. Note that normal insecticide alone will not help you resolve you SPP issues especially if are already secondary SPPs within the packaging of your materials.
