Pests can be a huge problem for your business and its reputation! They can infect any property if they have, therefore, it’s essential to keep your office, kitchen and workshops clean at all times.
Below are some of our simple recommendations to ensure that pests aren’t damaging your businesses reputation!
Remove access points
Pests can gain access to your business through the smallest of entries. Carefully inspect the exterior of your property paying close attention to common entry points such as windows, doors and even drainage pipes. It is important to eliminate any access points by sealing gaps, cracks, and holes regardless of their size. Pets are relentless in their search for food and nesting locations so what may seem like a small entry may lead to hardship later.
Keep a tidy exterior
Most business owners put a majority of their focus on the tidiness of their offices and workplaces and often overlook the importance of keeping a close eye on their exteriors. Simple things like pools of water need to be eliminated right away as these are breeding grounds for mosquitoes and attract further pests. Removing unnecessary debris is crucial as these can become safehouses for rodents and spiders. The location of your dumpers is also very important. If it is too close to your building you may find it is attracting unwanted visitors into your building. We recommend placing your bins and dumpsters away from any common openings and drains.
Educate your employees
Your employees are the heart and soul of your business. They spend a large portion of their day in your business and it effectively becomes their second home. It’s important to provide your staff with training, our team of pest control professionals can teach them how to identify an infestation and advise on the best solution before it becomes a problem.
