Pest Control For Construction Sites

Pest control is a major concern for construction sites in London. The pests can cause a lot of damage to the site and the surrounding area. They can also be a health hazard for the workers on site.

The most common pests found on construction sites are rats, mice, and pigeons. These pests can cause damage to buildings by chewing through wires and cables, as well as spreading diseases such as salmonella and toxoplasmosis.

There are many ways to control these pests on construction sites in London. One way is to use traps or poison baits that will kill them off over time. Another way is to use natural predators such as cats or owls which will scare them away from the site.

Bon Accord Pest Control For Construction Sites. Of all the potential hazards on a construction site, pests might seem like one of the least threatening. But a building site is still a workplace; no one wants to work alongside mice and rats. Construction sites also provide plenty of places for pigeons, starlings, and other birds to nest, as well as perches from where they can rain droppings down on workers, equipment, and infrastructure. If you aren’t mindful of the potential problems these pests can cause, they can quickly wreak havoc on any worksite.

Keeping Construction Sites Free From Pests

The presence of pests represents a severe hazard to workers and a potential threat to your business’s image and reputation. If pests contaminate your PPE, your workers won’t be able to do their jobs safely, no matter what steps you take. Infestations can also impact dining areas, where they have the potential to cause severe illnesses. If the health inspector visits while you have an active outbreak, they could levy some serious sanctions against your business, including shutting down the site and bringing all your work to a halt.

Common Pest Issues on Construction Sites

The most common problems that pests cause on construction sites are related to drainage. Constructing new buildings means opening new sewer lines. These provide rats with the perfect entry point to the site.

Any food or litter left behind by workers will provide mice and rats with food. Sugary food and drinks will attract various insects. On many construction sites, workers are eating out in the open, not in an enclosed canteen. This means that pests have much easier access to leftover food.

How to Deal With Pests on Your Site

When dealing with any pest infestation, time is of the essence. The longer you leave pests to their own devices, the deeper they will entrench themselves and the more difficult it will be to get rid of them. Not only this but unless you intervene quickly, even seemingly harmless pests can cause untold damage to your construction business.

The nature of construction sites draws some pests to them naturally; there’s not a lot you can do about this. However, there are several things you can do to make their presence less likely. For example, installing pigeon spikes, either temporarily or as part of your construction design, will keep birds from perching or nesting in sensitive areas. You should do this before they become a problem. Birds are particularly problematic pests because disturbing them or their nests requires a licensed professional in England under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

We will arrange a time to come and make an assessment of the site as soon as is convenient for you.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
