Why Every Business Should Consider Pest Control
December 18, 2017
There are so many options for people when choosing which retail establishments to give their business to. Having an excellent reputation can mean the difference between a successful, thriving business, or hanging up the store-closing signs. There is nothing that can ruin a business faster than a pest sighting. All it takes is one stray cockroach scurrying up the wall or an itty-bitty mouse peeking out from behind a shelf to get people running right to social media to share their nasty experience. Never mind that, but pests can cause real damage to your inventory and infrastructure. It’s imperative to have a pest control plan in place before disaster strikes.
Pests can destroy a business in a variety of ways:
Pests chew, especially rats, on anything and everything. This means they can chew right through your walls, wiring, fixtures, inventory, and food. This is an unsightly and costly repair for any retail establishment, but for restaurants, in particular, this can be devastating.
Pests urinate and defecate wherever they feel like it. This is not just a nuisance because you must clean up the mess, but it’s a health hazard. Rodent and other animal excrement can carry diseases that are harmful to humans. Health inspectors can shut you down if you have pests in a retail establishment that also serves food.
Pests have a nasty reputation. People tend not to like creepy crawly spiders and gag-worthy cockroaches. Should your employees and/or customers encounter pests in your establishment they are unlikely to return.
Because of any or all of these issues you should take a pest sighting in your retail store very seriously.
The best way to prevent pests from inhabiting your retail establishment is to work with a pest control specialist.
