The Extent Of Damage A Pest Infestation Can Cost A Business

There are six major types of businesses we serve, each with its own challenges when a pest problem crops up:

  1. Warehouses: With all those wide-open spaces and cardboard boxes, warehouses are particularly vulnerable to pest infestations. You could have a swarm of cockroaches chowing down on your boxes, a nest of rats gnawing on everything in sight, or a family of bats in your rafters leaving guano all over all your merchandise. 
  2. Schools: Nobody wants to think about pest infestations in schools where our children are supposed to be healthy and safe. But cockroaches and bed bugs can hitchhike in on students’ backpacks and spread like wildfire. Mice can infest the kitchen, leaving droppings and urine on every surface. Wasps can build nests near the playground, putting the kids at risk for stings.
  3. Retail Stores: Bed bugs are a surprisingly large problem for stores selling clothing. They can go home with customers on their purchases. Termites and ants can build nests in the walls of retail buildings and cause serious structural damage.
  4. Restaurants: Restaurants are especially susceptible to rodents, roaches, and raccoons. They can start by infesting the dumpsters outside, then move inside to your kitchen. All three can carry a variety of diseases, including E. coli and salmonella that could contaminate your food.
  5. Office buildings: No matter how much cleaning you do in an office building, you can still wind up with a pest problem. Bed bugs are common in offices, as employees who have them at home accidentally, unknowingly bring them in on their clothing or bags. Break rooms and kitchens can attract cockroaches or mice if they’re not kept meticulously clean.
  6. Apartments: A pest issue in one apartment can quickly spread through the entire building like a fire. Ants, rats, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, you name the pest, could become a problem for an entire apartment complex. 

If you own a business and have a problem with any of these issues, you need professional commercial pest control in Wilmington from Delmar Pest Control.

Pest Prevention Procedures You Can Implement In Your Business

There are some procedures you can implement to prevent pests in your business. First, keep your business clean. Cockroaches, rodents, and wildlife are attracted to food, so make sure you’re keeping a scrupulously clean kitchen.

Second, put tight-fitting lids on your outside garbage receptacles. Whether that’s commercial dumpsters or regular trash cans, tight-fitting lids can keep wildlife, roaches, and rodents out.

Third, partner with your local pest control company, Delmar Pest Control, so we can help you prevent infestations by treating your building inside and out with integrated pest management to ensure that Wilmington pests stay out of your business.
