Pests are a huge threat to any property and can bring a heap of issues that could end up costing you a fortune. Whether you have an office space, apartment building, healthcare facility, or restaurant, upkeep on pest control is extremely important (P.S Express can take care of your property’s pest control needs). Here are some common pests to look out for on commercial properties.
There can be several different species of ants that can find their way into your property. One that can become a nuisance is known as the pavement ant. They create their nests near foundations, asphalt, or sidewalks. They come in large numbers, so if you see one, chances are you will eventually see more later.
Mice can easily be noticed, but rats can often go undetected until their population starts growing. They aren’t just smelly, but they can be very destructive. The more they are out and about, the more your property becomes contaminated by everything they touch. Rodents also mass reproduce and you don’t want a bunch of them running around your property.
No one likes cockroaches! Spotting a single cockroach is probably enough to send you over the edge, but could you imagine one of your potential customers seeing one scurrying around? They spend their time in warm and humid locations including dumpsters, pet feces, or dead birds/animals. Cockroach infestations spread fast, and they can be tricky to eliminate once they are inside since they like to hide.
Aside from the common pests, there are other pests that only come out depending on the season. There are also termites, mosquitoes, fleas, spiders, bed bugs, and mites. Make sure to call Express Facility Management for all your pest control needs no matter what time of the year.
