The problem

PestTrend.com

Many quality managers are being over whelmed by increasing demands for data which are difficult to produce. Auditors, managers and clients all want to see evidence that pest control is being addressed in the appropriate way and is having the correct results. This can be further compounded with paper based systems and multiple sites to manage

Furthermore could they have to monitor contractors to ensure service levels are being adhered to

Paperless system with full reporting

How does this help you

PestTrend.com

It is hard to track what is going on and extremely time consuming when you are paper based. Data only becomes useful when you start using it and that can only happen when you have it organised and in an electronic form.

The problem becomes bigger the larger the facility you have and also the demands for reports increase. You can focus on delivering the reports and leave the storing of the data to us.Free Trial

Easily track servicing history

How does this help you

PestTrend.com

Historical data is only really useful if you can access it in a timely manner. As the demands of your stakeholders increase being able to produce low level details quickly reduces your workload and increases your capability to make good decisions.

Multi site, multi user

How does this help you

PestTrend.com

Having to schedule and monitor multiple sites is hard particularly if you have to travel. Save time and money my centrally collecting and storing the data for all your sites. No need to be visiting sites to view records when it can be done from your desk.

It also means that stakeholders who may not be at your site can also access the data without having to come to your head office. Auditors and clients can access the data from their desksFree Trial

Early warning

How does this help you

PestTrend.com

Doing proper trend analysis is hard. You have to not only put effort into getting accurate catch data but then have the nightmare of trying to take into account the complicating issues such as seasonality, service intervals, trap state and to top it all you have to be a spreadsheet wizard too.

Good trend analysis is not about getting a pretty graph to satisfy a requirement in a standard, it is about you getting a tip off that there is a potential problem and using that information to investigate before it becomes a major problem and you potentially losing a client.Free Trial

Pest contractor independent

How does this help you

PestTrend.com

As you can see from the diagram above the pest control contractor feeds into Pest Trend. Who that pest contractor is does not impact how PestTrend works.

Which means if you have different pest contractors servicing different sites it will not impact PestTrend. If you switch pest contractors it will not impact PestTrendFree Trial

Business Owners

OverView

As a business owner of a facility which is required to have formal pest control systems in place you will be under no illusion that prevention is far better than cure. Contamination of product is too late in the process and not the method you want to be finding out you have a pest problem.

Normal situation is where you or your pest controller has a range of pest control activities. On a fixed schedule your various pest stations (Electronic Fly Killers, Bait traps, rodent traps etc) are serviced. The results of the service are entered in a service report which gets added to you site Pest control file. Little or no analysis is done.

With PestTrend you load the count data from your service report into PestTrend. This can be done electronically or manually. Once the data is in PestTrend it can work out running averages for each of your pest stations and you get a real time picture of the state of your pest control.

Alerts will be raised if thresholds you have selected have been exceeded.

PestTrend can also manage your actions raised from audits, management, workforce or recommendations from a number of different sources.

Why get your pest control data online

July 26th, 2016

Any good process always needs a feedback loop. If your eyes didn’t tell you where you were going then walking in a straight line would be a difficult thing to do.

Why get your pest control data online (1)

So in your pest control process you have to be able to assess if your efforts are having an impact.

Typically someone is contracted to do the pest control and the output from that work is usually a written report of what has been done and some recommendations to deal with potential problems found.

All very straightforward I hear you say.

So how do you assess if your pest control is adequate and how do you decide if you need to spend some of your precious budget on shoring up potential problem areas.

Your clients and standards auditors also need to satisfy themselves that you have everything under control and they will certainly not take your word for it that everything is good. They want facts.

So where do you start to do your analysis.

Easy stuff

  • You can check that at least the pest contractor has visited the contracted number of times.
  • You can check that all pest traps have been checked and serviced where appropriate. Easy if you have a small number of traps to check. Starts getting harder when the numbers go up.
  • Review the recommendations from the pest contractor and decide which ones to implement.

Benchmark

A standard method to do an analysis is to establish a benchmark to compare with. This allows you to see if your pest control efforts are successful or not i.e is this year’s figures better or worse than the average for my site.

The obvious target for using as a benchmark is the catches in the pest traps.

There are a number of issues which have to taken into account when analysing the catches:

  • Each pest trap will have its own catch profile. i.e the fly killer in the closed in production room will kill less flies than the fly killer in the exposed goods in warehouse.
  • You cannot compare pest traps of different types i.e EFK and bait traps
  • Varying service schedules for the different trap types
  • Seasonality means that you cannot compare catches from month to month
  • Catches may not be valid if service intervals are erratic or trap is not working

So establishing that benchmark is going to take a bit of effort and that effort gets multiplied by the number of pest traps you have.

So what is the answer.

Simple. Get a computer to crunch the numbers for you and then you focus on the analysis of the result and managing the exceptions.

In order to allow the computer to number crunch you have to get your data into an electronic form.

Your options are:

  • Do it yourself on a spreadsheet
  • Hire someone to do the magic with the spreadsheet
  • Use an online service

Now each of the options above has good and bad points and a lot depends upon your setup but the point is that to do a proper benchmark analysis you are going to need help from a computer so that pest control data has to be in an electronic format.

The online service obviously gets our vote but using an online service has other benefits as well. There include:

  • Not having to worry about additional IT or software as a simple computer with internet access is all that is required
  • Being able to share access securely with clients and standards auditors both internal and external
  • Not being limited geographically as multiple sites in different locations can be analysed from any internet access point

So I go ahead and use a service to do the number crunch. What do I get in return for my efforts.

Well now you can start to make informed decisions based on facts. Such decisions could be:

  • How well has my pest contractor performed
  • Are all of the pest traps I have performing as would be expected for the location they are in and that time of year
  • For the pest traps which are not performing what further investigation should I do. This means you are now managing the exceptions. Much better use of your time.

So by getting your pest control data online you could take a major step forward in saving yourself time, being better placed to make the right decision and create huge confidence in your clients and auditors that you are doing an extremely good job

We will delve a bit deeper into how we assess the different aspects of performance in our next blog update but in the meantime start thinking about getting your pest control data online.

I would live to hear your comments and feedback so please comment and feel free to share this with anyone you think has a view on this.

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the PestTrend blog

July 9th, 2016

It is a great pleasure to be posting for the first time on our new blog. We will aim to bring useful ideas and information to you over the coming months focusing predominantly on making better or more use of your pest control data to make your life easier.

If you feel you would like to contribute with a relevant article of your own then please feel free to contact us.

Our expertise is in information technology and data analytics, your expertise or responsibility is pest control. Our objective is to combine your strengths and our strengths to produce a first class team who work efficiently and smartly together.

Pest control is a key part of any business and critical to the success of many manufactured products. Key to any process is measuring, monitoring and where possible predicting potential problems early to enable the right decisions to be made. Unfortunately the measuring and monitoring part of the pest control process is hard and time consuming. The predicting part is even harder because of the number of variable external factors such as seasonality, weather and access to traps to name but a few. We are trying to take away that pain which will allow you to get on with job of making decisions based on fact.

The handling of the pest control data is critical and that is where our expertise joins with the efforts of your hard work.

So if you are a pest contractor, quality manager, facilities manager, site owner or have an interest in pest control then be part of this discussion.

Looking forward to the next article which will be on “Getting your pest control data online”.
