Dirty boots and vehicle tyres can pose a very real risk to your property. People can unintentionally carry pest or disease-causing organisms on unwashed footwear and vehicle tyres, bringing them on to your farm without even realising it.
Soil-borne pests (like phylloxera, anthrax, Panama disease, Foot and Mouth) and weed seeds are carried in dirt and mud. Pieces of infected plant material, manure and soil itself can carry diseases directly from one site to the next.
A very simple way to manage this biosecurity risk is to ensure that visitors and staff who need to access to multiple areas is to thoroughly wash and disinfect their footwear and vehicle tyres upon entry and departure from your site.
