Some businesses are returning to normal and that means pest prevention is even more important than it’s been the past year. Pest control is always necessary, but it’s even more important when people are coming to your business and of course, to protect your employees.
There should be a zero-tolerance policy for pests at your business so having frequent pest control should be essential. It does not matter what type of business you own or manage, pest control is a priority because pests can carry disease, which can be transmitted to your employees and your customers. This not only leads to people getting sick but possible lawsuits too. Keep your space clean by making sure you have pest control come in monthly.
Pests carry different types of diseases that can just make your customers and employees sick or can lead to far worse conditions. More often than not, when pests are free to run around, people tend to deal with a lot of stomach issues. Pests crawl across everything so it’s always a good idea to keep things clean and practice good hygiene in the office. There is always a possibility that someone could bring a pest with them when they come from their own home. That is why pest control is so essential for a business.
Common Pests You’ll Find in the Office:
Ways to Prevent Pests in Your Business
- Make sure everything is clean, all the time.
- Sweep, mop, vacuum, take out the trash, keep the break room spotless, clean up even the tiniest of spills, keep bathrooms clean, clean off countertops/desks, etc.
- Be sure to seal off any entry points.
- No space is too small for pests to fit through, even rodents. So, seal all of them up, especially around vents and doors. Door sweeps are a business’s best friend.
- Check all of your inventory
- This includes what is currently arriving at your business. You don’t want to just put a box on a shelf without knowing what it contains. It sits in this place or that place for a long period, which means that it could have picked up a pest.
- Be mindful of interior plants
- This is a haven for pests because it has everything they need: a place to burrow in, food, and water. Small spiders adore small plants.
- Most importantly, call in monthly pest control
