How to increase bio-security for packhouses, orchards and farms

 

Vehicular traffic to your property can increase risk of disease transfer.

This can be a threat to your agricultural or horticultural business!

These include contractors, transport vehicles, or your own vehicle(s)

1. Have you considered what a possible infestation or bio-security risk would cost you in real money?

2. Is it time to assess your threat level?

  • Check the number of entry ports onto your property and visits made on a daily or weekly basis.
  • Check where your visitors have come from, the previous properties visited before yours.
  • Check the cleanliness of the visitor vehicles, open deck or closed deck trucks and trailers, visible soil loadings on       ledges, horizontal surfaces, is the soil wet or dry, is there build up of dirt and residue  in crevices and   undercarriages?
  • Check for current disease alerts for transportable and/or contagious threats relevant to your enterprise.

 

3.  Consider the solution to suit your site:

 

Options for vehicle bio-security treatment include;

  • Self-contained vehicular spray treatment system at the entry to your property. A drive through system capable of  automatically sensing the vehicle and applying the exact volume of disinfectant sanitizer on the exterior surfaces.
  • Spray gun and hose located at the entry for manual spray treatment by the vehicle driver/operator.
  • Daily pressure clean of vehicles with dosed with sanitizer by the driver /operator.
  • Pressure clean and sanitize related handling equipment such as loaders and forklifts.
