There is no tolerance for pests in any commercial establishment from restaurants to retail, offices, lodging, healthcare facilities, or schools. Modern Pest’s ecocare Commercial Services can help!
The Impact of Pest Problems on Your Business
Pests are more than an annoyance, from pesky flies to random rodent sightings. Public-facing businesses are at risk of greater fallout these days with the virality of posts on social media. The ramifications of pest problems that are not prevented or addressed in a timely fashion can cause a variety of issues such as:
- Financial impact due to a damaged reputation. 2 out of 3 customers are unlikely to return to any business if they spot a pest, and will avoid a business that is known to have pests.
- Further financial impact of fines issued by health inspectors.
- Potential health risks to customers and employees.
- Risk to employee satisfaction that can result in turnover.
- Damage and destruction of property or inventory.
Integrated Pest Management
The three-pronged approach to basic pest control is Inspect, Identify, and Treat. The prescribed solution for commercial pest control is Integrated Pest Management, a comprehensive plan designed to suit the individual needs of a business. This pest control plan includes:
- Inspecting facilities, both inside and outside.
- Identifying signs of pest activity or conditions that pose an invitation to pests.
- Assessing the extent of pest activity.
- Treating the pest problem using the safest plan possible for your business.
- Recommending necessary facility repairs or upgrades and exclusion steps.
- Educating staff on proactive measures to prevent pests from entering.
- Preventing further pest activity and infestations with continuous monitoring.
Some businesses are more susceptible to pests and the needs for pest control differ from one industry to the next. Managing a warehouse, running a restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, or managing an apartment building all present a different set of pest challenges.
