Now that employees and business owners are spending more time back in the office, the issue of commercial pest control is back in full force. It’s important for workers, customers, and visitors to feel comfortable at all times, and keeping unwanted pests out is a big part of this. Some of the most common uninvited guests include termites, ants, cockroaches, flies, and rodents. Even if you don’t see obvious signs, they might already be working their ways in – this is why preventative measures are so important.
- Flies and cockroaches: You might think that a few flies won’t cause any harm, but they can spread bacteria. And if you serve food at your establishment or employees have meals there, flies can get into the food and ruin meals. Cockroaches can be even worse, as they can contaminate food, prep surfaces, and serving pieces.
- Termites: Termites are different because you don’t always see them at first, but they destroy wood structures from the inside out. This can lead to very costly repairs.
- Rodents: A rodent infestation can cause long-lasting or permanent damage to a businesses, and if customers see them, reputations can change forever.
