If you own a business, you know the fear that strikes you when you spot a mouse run across the floor or see a roach on your counter. These pests are all very bad for business. Not only can they contaminate food or destroy textiles, they can scare away customers and leave a dent in your reputation.
Whether you run a hotel, restaurant or office, it’s imperative that you keep pests out of the workplace. Here’s a look at the top five pests that are bad for business.
Cockroaches spread diseases such as e. Coli and salmonella, which can make your customers and staff very sick. This is especially bad news for the hospitality and food service industries. Not only can your customers become sick, they may very well never patronize your establishment again for fear of another bad experience. And on top of that, you could get fined by local food safety authorities if pests -- or evidence of them – are detected in your commercial property during an inspection. Cockroaches multiply like wild fire, so you need to get cockroach treatment right away before they spread.
Rodents are also spreaders of disease, but they more commonly are nuisance pests that hide inside storage rooms, broom closets, pantries, broom closets and in small, confined spaces in offices and restaurants. Because they chew through walls and wires, they can cost your business thousands of dollars in damages.
Bedbugs can get into bedding in your schools, offices, and hotels, getting there by clinging to clothing and luggage. Once they get into a building, they quickly spread out and make themselves at home. If you manage a hotel, hospital or university, you need to be diligent in keeping bed bugs out of your buildings to keep paying customers, patients and students safe.
Termites eat away at wooden structures behind your walls, causing untold amounts of damage to structural supports. They also rapidly eat through wooden patio furniture, fences and decks. If left unchecked, they can devastate your business and leave you holding repair bills in the thousands. Termite prevention plan is a good cost effective plan
5. Wasps / Hornets
Wasps build nests near your building, hovering around customers above doorways, under covered patios and near trash cans. Customers may avoid entering the premises if they are being terrorized by wasps and hornets who could sting them and cause pain or serious allergic reactions.
