Why Professional Pest Control Is The Right Idea For Your Business
Some business owners may believe that commercial pest control is unnecessary. What many don’t know is that there are countless pests who can infest and destroy a business quietly. Several insects and other pests require constant preventive measures; especially those that multiply at a fast rate. Once they’ve staked their claim, it can be extremely difficult to get rid of them. If you don’t reach out to Bill Clark Pest Control, you could lose everything. Your building may deteriorate. Products might be unusable. Customers or employees could become ill. Your reputation could be soured. Find out how you can stop these possibilities from becoming a reality.
What Are the Risks of Pests & Infestations in Businesses?
The vast majority of pests pose some kind of threat. Termites, powder post beetles, carpenter ants, and other wood-destroying bugs are a menace to structures. They eat away at foundations, which could lead to unsteadiness. Numerous businesses have to shut down entirely because of related damage, and it’s costly. For example, termites cost Americans five billion dollars every year, and the average insurance company deems it preventable, so they won’t cover it.
Pests like silverfish, crickets, carpet beetles, and moths can ruin materials such as fabrics and upholstered furniture, so businesses containing or working with these kinds of materials could suffer from these pests around. Further, specific types of moths can spoil food and pantry items. Even if your building stays up and your inventory goes untouched by pests, you’ll have to think about health hazards. Many bugs and animals have the potential to spread or trigger disease.
Case in point, rodents, ants, and cockroaches are all known to carry bacteria and parasites. Harmful germs are on their skin, in their fur, and in their bodily waste. They contract additional microbes when they go through garbage, tunnels, sewers, and other dirty spaces. Simply crawling on your food and surfaces can result in contamination, resulting in ruined products or equipment and illness for your employees and customers. On top of this, rodents can start an electrical fire or cause structural damage when they chew on materials to saw down their teeth. The consequences would be dire for an establishment in residential living, dining, hospitality, food processing, or factory distribution.
How Are Different Kinds of Businesses Impacted
- A hospital or other healthcare business needs to be extremely vigilant about keeping pests out especially those that could carry or spread germs and diseases.
- A landlord who owns apartment buildings needs to watch out for pests that easily spread from unit to units such as cockroaches and bed bugs.
- A hotel owner has to worry about people possibly bringing in pests with them and ensure that the rooms stay clean for every visitor.
These are just a few examples of how pests can impact different businesses, and why it's so important that you get individualized services when you need to keep pests away.
Why Don’t “Do It Yourself” Methods Work?
If you try your luck with retail insecticides, baits, traps, and other products, you’ll be frustrated. You’ll also have a hole in your wallet, as these avenues will only be mildly useful and you’ll have to repeatedly purchase them. You should also consider the following:
- Store goods are designed for short-term use and have temporary effects.
- Commercial items won’t address entry points or infestations.
- Each subspecies has a unique response to various treatments. Proper pest identification is crucial.
- Some products are extremely toxic and could be lethal for humans and pets.
- Label instructions are confusing; you could dangerously misapply a solution.
