Many business owners think that a pest management solution isn’t necessary, and they couldn’t be more wrong. Even if your business doesn’t provide food or food-related services, regular pest control is vital.
It’s easy to see why food manufacturers require pest control, but any type of business can experience an infestation. Hotels are vulnerable to bed bugs and office blocks to rodents, cockroaches, ants and birds. Storage rooms stacked with cardboard boxes will, no doubt, invite rodents.
The risk increases if the hygiene practices of your business are questionable. If you don’t clean regularly and leave food lying around, you might attract some unwanted visitors. No matter how old or new your building is, it creates the perfect environment for pests. Here’s why you should consider a pest management solution for your business:
Protects Employees by Lowering the Risk of Disease
Pests like flies, cockroaches and rodents are carriers of diseases and infect the human environment. They contaminate all surfaces and food lying around and transmit diseases through their mouths. These diseases can range from mild to severe and may require the patient to be hospitalised. In some instances, the consequences can be fatal.
On a global scale, nearly one billion people are affected by vector-borne diseases annually. Around 900 million foodborne illness cases are recorded each year, according to WHO. A strategic pest management solution will disrupt the disease transmission cycle and protect your workers from infection.
Interrupts Pest Breeding Cycle
Most pests have a rapid breeding cycle, which means their numbers increase quickly. Without a pest management solution in place, they might spread to new areas of your business, and you will feel the brunt of an uncontrollable pest infestation. With an infestation comes the risk of your employees getting sick. So if you want to reduce the risk of disease, putting a pest management solution in place will slow down the breeding cycle.
Decreases Business Costs
The devastation caused by pests can be significant enough to be forced into stopping operations, thus losing money. Businesses rely on both digital networks and production lines, and the cost of disrupting any of these can be extensive. Protect your business against financial ruin by implementing regular pest control services.
