You may already have some ideas of the problems pests can create just by reading this list. Let's take a closer look.

All The Problems Pests Can Create For Your Business

You know that these pests can be a problem, but you might not understand how serious the problem is or why you should have a licensed pest management professional provide you with commercial pest control services. Here are a few factors to consider:

  • Cockroaches, flies, rats, mice, and other dirty pests can cause contamination of food products, increase audits from health inspectors, damage your reputation, drive tenants out of rental properties, lower employee morale, and cause many other problems.
  • Venomous pests that aren't dealt with early can present a stinging hazard to your customers and employees.
  • Termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles, and other wood-damaging pests can be a threat to commercial properties.
  • If you store products for your customers, mice, rats, birds, and other pests can damage these items.
  • Nuisance pests can reduce employee morale and productivity.
  • Pests can damage your reputation in a variety of ways.

Residential and commercial pest control service plans work in a similar way to keep common pests out, reduce pest activity around structures, address health threats, and guard against property damage. There are also specific ways commercial pest control targets commercial pests in a specific way to address common problems related to businesses. Consult with a licensed pest management professional to establish a quality commercial pest control program that is tailored to your specific needs.

All The Hassles Of DIY Pest Control For Your Business

Another reason commercial pest control services are a great choice for Virginia Beach businesses is that DIY pest control often falls short or creates unwanted hassles. When treatments are performed by untrained individuals it can lead to some of the following problems:

  • Waste of money and resources
  • Results that don't meet government regulatory standards
  • Ongoing consequences of a hidden problem
  • Increased issues, such as ant colonies budding or pests becoming averse to baits
  • Damaged reputation when pests keep appearing
  • The difficulties of rescheduling employees due to sickness
  • Litigation from customers or employees impacted by pests
  • Business closure

It often doesn't pay to do it yourself. We strongly recommend consulting with a licensed pest control applicator to guard against these and other problems.
