We manufacture and warehouse corrugated packaging and are working towards moving one of our facilities to compliance with AIB. The facility has a Pest Control provider that has been used for several years with great success as reported by the facility top Management. In review of the program, bait stations are used both internally and externally using rodenticide bait containing Bromadiolone and Bromethalin. This has been discussed with the provider and moving to interior catch traps was not something he was willing to move to as he has been in the pest control business for a long time with background experience working with the FDA and disease control. Stating interior bait stations were the best route for our needs.
I am familiar with the AIB standard as it reads like this would be unacceptable. Can someone shed some light on this for me? Are there any exceptions or instances where interior bait stations would be acceptable for our needs? Upper Plant Management has informed me that they really want to work with this Pest Control provider and keep his services.
