Why Commercial Pest Control Is So Important

October 30, 2013By

Let’s face it, business owners have a lot to deal with.

When they are not taking care of customers, handling tax issues or scouting the competition, business owners often face an onslaught of pests which can potentially do more harm to their business than the IRS.
Whether you run a restaurant, manage a local grocery store, or own an apartment building, out of control pets can cause serious problems such as:

Restaurants:

  • Health code violations
  • Grossed out customers who leave and put angry comments on social media
  • Local media showing up with cameras

Grocery Stores:

  • Pests running free in your stockrooms
  • Fruit flies in your produce
  • Contaminated product that makes customers ill

Multi-Family Dwellings

  • Pests spreading disease from one unit to another
  • Bed bugs spreading from one unit to another
  • Damage to your building or property 

Don’t Cut Corners with DIY

When trying to get rid of unwanted pests, there is always the chance that you may be tempted to use “DIY” pest control treatments, especially if you think you might save a few bucks.

Be warned, these treatments often contain pesticides and other chemicals that can be very dangerous to you, your customers and ultimately your business. Even some of the safer pest control products, when used incorrectly, can have harmful effects, or at worst not get rid of your pest problem.

That is, assuming of course, that you have identified the proper pest you are trying to get rid of, and have applied the chemical in the proper amount and location.

If not, you might be wasting both time and money.

By working with commercial pest control specialists such as Fischer Environmental, you can ensure we identify the correct pest and put a plan of action in place to remove it.  Our team will administer eco-friendly treatments in and around your place of business that are both safe and effective.  This eliminates the current pest problem, and prevents new ones from occurring.

With this in mind, it’s easy to see why hiring a commercial pest control service might actually be less costly than trying to take care of pests on your own, especially if you are the owner or manager of a commercial property. Do-it-yourself pest treatments are not inexpensive, nor are they typically very effective.
