I would like to recommend Brian Mapes for services as a pest control technician in food distribution facilities. Brian has provided Food Bank of the Rockies with excellent pest control service from December 2011 to the present. Although I myself have only consulted with him for a year, in that time I found him to be diligent, communicative, accommodating, and dedicated to helping us achieve our food safety goals.
Brian serviced our main facility of 106,241 square feet and our commodities facility of 35,700 square feet once a week. His service visits include checking and servicing rodent monitoring devices, placing and analyzing pheromone traps, analyzing and servicing insect light traps, and monitoring and servicing exterior rodent bait stations. Brian provided detailed service reports that included recommendations for building maintenance and personnel practices that would help to ensure a pest-free facility.
I was certainly pleased with Brian’s work ethic and willingness to assist us. On occasions when we experienced appearances of ants or other pests, Brian would address the problem immediately; often within a couple of hours after receiving our report. When we underwent a third-party safety audit the inspector found Brian’s services and documentation to be acceptable for high food safety standards. I feel confident that Brian would provide superior service for any food distribution or warehouse facility.
