Pests are a plague on warehouses and storage areas. This is especially true if that storage area contains food. However, more and more business in the UK, especially in the larger cities, are having to deal with bed bugs. Bed bugs love hitchhiking, and come in on employees. They will then transfer onto the goods that are going to be shipped. A businesses reputation can be ruined faster than you can say bed bugs if your items contain insects and other pests.
