    The issue of pest infestation on shipping vessels is quite important to take a serious stand against cockroaches, rats, flies, and bed bugs. Ships provide the perfect environment for pests to thrive and multiply, causing a severe spread of diseases among passengers and crew.

    The influx of certain pests such as rats causes significant damage to electric wiring and also contaminates foodstuff. Contamination of food items transmits serious vector diseases to the crew and passengers. Debug offers sanitization services to clients such as ship pest control, cargo pest control, and yacht pest control.

    The pests usually tend to enter through open spaces such as doors, ramps, and potholes. Ports also store a large amount of food, which attracts pests and harbors them. For the well-being of passengers and crew members, it is very important to maintain appropriate disinfection and sanitization services on ships.

    Ship sanitation and pest control is quite challenging due to factors such as:

    • Time limitations as ships stay at ports for only a limited duration of time.
    • There are continuous movements with passengers, staff and food.
    • Presence of various harboring places such as ducts, voids, walls and ceilings.
    • Presence of standing water.
