5 Signs of a Commercial Pest Infestation
As a business owner, you likely understand the risks of a pest infestation. But could you have pests on the premises and not realize it? Here are some top signs of a commercial pest infestation.
The classic sign of pest infestation, droppings are a sure bet you have rodents or other critters on the premises. Check your office, restaurant, motel or other business often for fecal droppings or urine trails. It’s relatively easy to spot rat or mice waste, but when it comes from smaller pests like bed bugs, it’s not as easy to see. Tell your housekeeping and cleaning staff to regularly check all bedding, furniture, floors, and walls for droppings.
Rodents make nests out of a variety of materials, from clothing to boxes to shredded paper. You may find these nests in attics, underneath flooring or between walls. Be on the lookout for signs of nesting every day.
3. Grease marks and tracks
Grease marks and tracks are another sign of rodent infestation. That’s because mice and rats travel along the same paths, leaving behind a greasy trail. Look for these along walls, which is how rats in particular like to travel.
4. Physical damage
Damage such as holes and gnaw marks also indicate a pest infestation. Look for these on furniture or wiring, as well as small holes in floors or walls. Damaged wood indicates a termite infestation, so check wooden furniture and decks often for these signs.
5. Damaged plants
Watch for insect trails, and let us know if you observe gnawing marks on grass blades or garden plants. You may also notice damaged patches of lawn, uneven grass lengths or large areas of brown, dead patches. Pest infestation in a garden is usually caused by moles, voles, beetles, grubs, crickets, and flies.

FAQs About Commercial Pest Infestation for Nashville area
We hear a lot of questions over the years about commercial pest infestation, so we thought we would share those common queries with you here.
Q What is the best way to get rid of bed bugs in my hotel?
A: It’s best to call a commercial exterminator in this case to provide thermal remediation (heat), which will quickly kill bed bugs at all developmental stages.
Q: How can I keep cockroaches out of my restaurant?
A: Sanitation control is your best bet. This involves cleaning up food debris and wiping up spills frequently throughout the day. Don’t forget to clean under and behind equipment and appliances, and always inspect new products before bringing them into your facility. That said, once you have cockroaches on the premises, they’re very difficult to get rid of on your own. Call a commercial exterminator right away to ensure your problem is taken care of for good.
Q: How can I prevent birds from nesting on our roof?
A: There are many ways to keep them from nesting in rafters, including noise and visual deterrents as well as physical deterrents such as spikes, netting or electrical strips. Your commercial exterminator in Nashville will know the best method that will work for your business.
Q: How do bugs keep getting into my facility?
Insects get into buildings in many ways, such as flying or crawling in open doors and windows, or getting in though air vents on your roof. Bugs and small critters can squeeze through cracks in your exterior walls, and others hitch a ride on inbound products and plants.
Q: Does mulch attract termites?
A: Yes. Termites love cellulose and moisture, which is what mulch is made up of. This makes it a hub for termite activity, no matter what type of mulch you have outside.
Q: Do pests get in through drains?
A: Yes, many pests get into your facility via the drains depending on what kind of plumbing system you may have. Drain traps and good sanitation practices can help.
